Fredonia Humane Society still has 8 highly adoptable dogs to place before the shelter closes . We started with nearly 50 so we’re almost there!! Are you able to resist these smiling faces? Please share this email with friends, family and your favorite social network site to help us spread the word. Will do out-of-state placement — transport help is available.

How was Marble supposed to feel when someone tied her to a house post with a lasso knot around her neck and left her there to become someone else’s responsibility? She wasn’t at all sure, so she decided being very scared was probably the right reaction. She shook like a leaf and made herself as small as possible when we slowly approached. It took about a half an hour for her to feel safe enough to climb into someone’s lap, and Marble has been a different girl ever since. Sweet, playful and a cuddlebug, she’s comfortable with other dogs (submissive/playful) but the main focus is her love for people. See all Marble’s “adorableness” in her Petfinder profile video. Spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Crate, leash, potty & doggy door trained. Approx. 3 years old.
Like her twin sister Coral, Java is a fun, sweet, silly girl who is high energy and full of love. She’s also very affectionate in her calmer moments and especially likes to act the part of a lap pup. Good with most other dogs. Because of her energy level, Java will do best in a home with older children. Spayed, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Crate, leash & doggy door trained. 2 years old.
Beau is a fantastic dog who has Lab temperament with a strong, muscular body – extremely loving and playful. He gets along with most other dogs and loves people. He’s energetic and strong, which is a combination some people mistake for undesirable behavior but is just his zest for life. You’ll rarely see him without a ball – a focus ability that would have earned him a spot with Search and Rescue had he been a few years younger. He favorite game is “roof ball” where a tossed ball bounces its way down the roof as he stands under the overhang trying to figure out where it will drop. Beau’s ideal home is with no small children (because of his strength) and no cats. Neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Crate & doggy door trained. 5 years old.
Like her sister Java, Coral is a fun, sweet, silly girl who is full of love. She’s a highly sociable girl who’s up for a romp in the yard, a long walk or a cuddle on the couch. Excellent with other dogs — is the shelter’s “mom” to orphaned pups who need help learning social skills. Spayed, fully vaccinated & microchipped. Crate, leash & doggy door trained. 2 years old.
Freddie was dumped at a remote site known for abandoned dogs. Sick, malnourished and dehydrated, he spent the next several months overcoming the challenges of trying to survive alone in the desert. But look at this boy now! Both his physical and mental health are great – he loves attention, food & walks. He’ll do best in a home where he is the only pet. As a senior, his eyesight is being protected with twice daily drops. Neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, crate & doggie door trained. Over 7 years old.
Hi, my name is Christine but my foster mom calls me Chica, she says it suits me better. You see, I’m a survivor – I’ve survived cancer, shrapnel in my jaw and living on the streets of the Navajo reservation. And recently, I lost my home of the last two years because my family could no longer take care of me due to human illness. So here I am again, looking for that forever home at my middle age; without the benefit of classic good looks that everyone looks for. But my foster mom says I am soooo adorable and with my beautiful brown eyes, crazy sideways ears and little head that doesn’t match the rest of my body. And I’m on a diet and exercise plan now, so I’ll be in great shape pretty soon. I love people and like the company of other dogs (as long as they let me be the boss – part of my survival instincts ya know). I just need a family that will love me for what I am, give me scratches behind the ears, talk to me lovingly and give me proper diet and exercise. And I’ll teach you how to survive in this world and not let it get you down – we’re in this world to live and love, that’s my motto. Come meet me and get to know me, you won’t regret it. Spayed, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Crate, lease, potty & doggy door trained. Over 7 years old.
