Those of you that follow Humane Society news know that we take in dogs from overcrowded shelters and we just got in a wonderful group of new dogs. These dogs range from larger to tiny and we would like to give you a brief rundown on these “newbies.” Because these dogs just recently came to the shelter, we don’t know a lot about their personalities and have to rely on our interactions with them.

“Yeager” is a 20-month-old retriever/lab cross (?) who is very sweet and energetic. His coat is a beautiful cocoa brown color. He greets everyone who stops by his cage like a wonderful friend. Yeager has never met a stranger and would probably do best in an active home.

“Rudy” is a cute little black terrier mix, and is just a pup at 7 months. He also acts like he never met a stranger and loves attention.

“Pansy” is the oldest of our new arrivals and is a pretty little tan and white Lhasa apso mix. Because she is a mature dog, she most likely has a few more manners than do the exuberant youngsters. She would love a quiet home and with a human senior would be perfect.

Also in this new group are “Cha Cha,” a fetching brown and black middle-aged Chihuahua mix. Her cage mate is “Tinkerbelle” a 4-year old rat terrier Chihuahua mix. She is shorthaired with a cute white and brown spotted coat.

“River” is an adorable tan curly-haired terrier mix who one of the staff at his previous shelter described as lovable and energetic. He is a young dog at 16 months of age. His coat is the wonderful curly terrier type hair and he probably sheds very little or not at all. He of all the new dogs seems the most frightened of all the new dogs, but all it takes are a few kind words to get his tail wagging.

Words and pictures really don’t describe well how cute and sweet these dogs are and how anxious they are to find their forever homes. So if you have been considering adding a new best friend to your home, the best thing to do is come on down to the shelter and see them for yourself. They love company!

Just a reminder that the SPCHS is celebrating 20 years of sheltering at a dinner and fund-raising silent auction on April 23. It will be held at the Chinook School from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Included in the festivities will be a special presentation to veterinarians Ed Ketel and Catherine Lindblad of Oceanside Animal Clinic. They have provided us with years of great veterinarian care.

The cost of tickets is only $25 and includes a pasta dinner cooked by Sondra Eaton and her staff at The Cove Restaurant at the Peninsula Golf Course. Those of you who have eaten at the Cove know how wonderful their food is!

If you have items to donate for the silent auction please call the shelter at 642-1180. For more information about this important event please visit our website at

Please plan on joining us for this event that promises to be a lot of fun and an enjoyable night out. And yes, it truly has been raining cats and dogs...
