Theodore

Listing Date: May 12, 2020

Birth Date:

Breed: Domestic mediumhair

Spayed/Neutered: No

Vaccination Status: Rabies, rubella

Physical Description: ~3-4 years old Unneutered male (I am willing to have him neutered) Dark tabby markings, long hair, bushy tail >10 lbs

Personality Description: Theodore is willful, but sweet. He is used to being outdoors, so he is currently doing a lot of indoor pacing. He meows for attention, but does not purr that I've noticed. He is aggressive with other cats, but has shown himself willing to be bribed with cat treats in return for leaving other cats alone. He will absolutely ham it up if he thinks he can get something out of it!

History: Theodore has been our local stray for more than a year. We started leaving food out for him when it became obvious that he was losing too much weight. Recently, he hurt his paw, so we took him to the vet. He was comfortable riding in the car, and when we took him home, he knew how to use the litter box, so he has been with people before. Otherwise, his history is unknown.

If interested in Theodore, contact Megan at [email protected].

Ollie

Listing Date: December 31, 2019

Birth Date: September 1, 2017

Weight: 70 pounds

Breed: Mixed - hound/pointer

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: Up-to-date

Physical Description: Black and white

Personality Description: Ollie is a happy, energetic, and loving dog. He is great with other dogs and kids and loves to play and receive attention.

History: I found Ollie outside of my house in rural Warren County, NC when he was around 10 weeks old. He was small, cold, and hungry. I thought that I would keep him for a few weeks and here we are two years later. He is a highly energetic and loving dog that loves to run, play with other dogs at the dog park, and sleep next to you. Shortly after moving to Durham, I realized that I wasn't going to have the time or money to take care of him the way he needs to be taken care of. I work 9-10+ hour days and he stays either crated or holed up in my room. I am looking for a home where he will have plenty of room to run outside off-leash or with an owner who will take him to the dog park or on daily runs. He loves to be petted and to have attention, so I am ideally looking for someone who wants to give attention to a very loving and lovable dog.

If interested in Ollie, contact Alex Borst at [email protected].


Gypsy

Listing Date: December 27, 2019

Birth Date: December 1, 2016

Breed: Mixed

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: We got him a rabies shot and 1st of 2 distemper. Needs 2nd distemper mid-January.

We were able to crate him and take him to our vet and found that he's in great health, neutered, about 4-5 years old, 7-1/2 pounds. Negative for FeLV. He's got beautiful green eyes, a very healthy coat and per our vet, is in great health.

Personality Description: This kitty is very trusting of people although remains territorial about his food - understandably. He walks around with his tail high indicating happiness and lets us scratch his head, ears, etc. With a little patience and time he will be the best indoor cat. He was easy to crate and is very curious. Also loves to eat.

History: Patches is a stray who's been living in our neighborhood (downtown Chapel Hill) for a few months now. He has no chip and has his ear tipped which would indicate a feral cat but he's quite friendly and we think may have had college students taking care of him.

He doesn’t bark at other dogs and is calm-mannered. He loves to relax, but his favorite things are running outside, playing fetch, and hiking.

History: He has protein-losing enteropathy, which means his body doesn’t process fat. He cannot have regular dog food, rather his vet has formulated a diet that works well for him. It’s $80 a month for this food. Furthermore, I make couscous and baked tilapia twice a week for him and store it in the fridge. His health insurance is transferable, and 90% of all possible future medical is covered. It also covers his monthly supplements, which cost $6 a month. He’s more than worth it. He’s the most loving dog you’ll ever meet. Call or text me (720) 793-6960 if interested to set up a meet and greet!

Simba

Listing Date: October 30, 2019

Birth Date: March 27, 2019

Breed: Tabby

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: vaccinations are up to date

Physical Description: Beautiful orange tabby male with "classic" pattern.

Personality Description: He is very playful and may benefit from a home with an owner who can give him a lot of play time or with another energetic kitten to keep up with him and wear him out. He has a very loud purr and loves neck scratches. He is affectionate, but not yet a lap cat. He’d rather play with you than lay on you! He is a great jumper when playing with his feather wand toys and happily walks off with his “prey” after a successful pounce. He is a good eater and litter box user and scratches only on the appropriate posts. He will take treats directly from your hand. We will provide all medical records and his favorite toys.

History: He was found on a busy road in Chapel Hill when he was 5 months old. He has since been fully vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped by his foster parents. They hoped to assimilate him into their home, but the current cat in the home is very territorial and does not tolerate him or his energy level. She assumes his rough kitten play is an attack, so she growls, hisses, and ultimately hides from him and needs to be in a separate room. This is not fair for either cat. We'd love to help this fun boy find his forever home.

If interested in Simba, contact Susan at [email protected].

Zoey

Listing Date: October 4, 2019

Birth Date: March 17, 2014

Weight: 17 pounds

Breed: Domestic Short Hair

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: rabies shot up to date

Physical Description: Black and white

Personality Description: Zoey is 5+years old and is an only cat. She is indoor only. I adopted her 5 years ago, she was found on the street, without a mom. I am giving her up because of behavioral issues. She is still very loving, but she has a lot of small issues that I can no longer handle and are just causing me a lot of anxiety. I believe she would thrive in a home with an owner that is there more often. Some of her behavioral issues are: Pooping right outside her litter box. I started using multiple boxes and the problem has gotten a lot better, but i don't have enough space in my apartment for a permanent solution. (She never learned to cover her poop or pee, so that probably does not help). Hissing at everyone that comes over, even when they are not in her space, she hisses when people talk sometimes even. Very territorial. Very anxious, jumps up with the smallest noise. I have used the calming collar, feliway and solutions of that kind. I recently took her to the vet and got Gabapentin for situations where i know she will be stressed. She has not been around other animals, so I don't know how she would react to them.

History: She is microchipped

Shelby

Listing Date: September 24, 2019

Birth Date: September 24, 2016

Weight: 38 pounds

Breed: Staffy mix

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: UTD on vaccines/Hearworm negative

Physical Description: Hi! I'm Shelby. I have short, silky tan fur and eyes that match perfectly. I am quite petite (35lbs.) but I am muscular and energetic.

Personality Description: I am looking for my soul mate. I love to play fetch and I am super fast and athletic. I also play a mean game of tug! I will keep you giggling for hours with my antics. I am a little nervous in new places so if you had a back yard in which we could play, that would be great. I would do best in a home without other dogs. I like to play with other dogs but I need some time to get to know them first. It's the same with people. I need a little time to make sure they are cool and then I will love all over them! Indoors I am quiet and sweet and I settle down quickly. My favorite thing is to sleep snuggled up against my person. I am super affectionate and it doesn't take me long to make friends. I like to go into my crate when I need a rest and I never go to the bathroom in the house. I only chew the things that I am supposed to chew. I know lots of commands and will do what you ask me to do. I am smart enough to figure stuff out quickly and have trained my foster well. I will do ANYTHING for a treat. My perfect home would be a quiet environment with active people who would like to play with me some every day. Although I like to play outside I don't need tons of exercise to be happy. I can be left alone in my crate for several hours but I don't think I'd like to be in it for the entire day. I'm not really comfortable around small children or cats so a home without those would be best for me. I am definitely a "best friend" doggy and I am looking for that person or persons who will be a best friend back to me. Please contact my foster mom, Laurie LaBean, if you would like to meet me. I am hoping to find a home in the Mebane/Hillsborough area so she can pet sit me (she said it would be free!) when you go out of town and then I can play with my best friend Chester from time to time!! Her number is 919-641-9595.

History: Shelby was abandoned at a local boarding kennel.

History: Little Foot and Sarah were part of a 6 kitten litter born to a stray and semi-feral cat. They were living under a car and the owner wanted to move it. Momma was not moving the kittens so my husband and I decided it was safer to try and move the kittens with mom. Little Foot and Sarah came right up to us but the others hid in the car engine! Momma cat has since moved her 4 kittens to a new unknown and hopefully safer location. Little Foot and Sarah are beginning to ween off formula and learning to use the litter box. They had an exam at the vet and were deemed healthy but they are too young to be tested for FIV/FELV.

He also is a super cuddler and enjoys sitting next to you on the couch or sleeping on your bed. He enjoys walks and playing in running water, like a stream or river. Pepper would do so well in a house with a lot of outdoor space where he could run and run. He would do well with someone who can better train Pepper and help him with his medical needs. Basically Pepper needs more space to run and release his energy, more care than we can offer, medically, emotionally and physically. Good with- Pepper is good with other dogs, cats and kids. He loves meeting new people and loves getting attention, and giving lots of kisses.

History: Every month or so Pepper will have a couple of seizures. He's not on any medication for them but we do give him some CBD oil and that seems to help his overall anxiety and hopefully the amount of seizures he has. He started having seizures about a year ago, we aren't sure what causes them and they are random when they happen. Pepper also has anxiety which makes him hyper

Margo

Listing Date: June 4, 2019

Birth Date: July 15, 2006

Breed: domestic shorthait

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: up to date

Physical Description: Margo is a chubby brown tabby with striking green eyes.

Personality Description: Miss Margo is a sweet 13 year old lady. She loves routine and to share space with her people, giving slow love-blinks and getting chin scratches. She's a senior,so she naps most of the time- preferably on a soft spot by the window, and sometimes even on your lap or next to you in bed. She adores treats, and has a weakness for cheese. She really likes when you whistle. Being around other animals stresses her out, so she would be happiest as the only pet in the home. Margo is a wonderful girl and would love nothing more than a peaceful retirement.

History: We adopted Margo a almost a year ago from a shelter soon before she was scheduled to be put down. We wanted to give her comfort in her golden years, but it turns out that she does not like our other cat or our dog at all, and she is more stressed than we would like her to be. We are moving overseas in a couple months and want to make sure this special girl finds the right match.

Zara

Listing Date: June 1, 2019

Birth Date: June 4, 2006

Weight: 45 pounds

Breed: Bull Terrier

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: Has Rabies vax. But needs Dis/Parv & Bord.

Physical Description: Zara is a 45 lbs. tricolor (Black, White and Brindle) Bull Terrier.

Personality Description: Zara has a great sense of humor, loves her people and loves to make them laugh. She is very people and food focused. Her ideal home would include only older kids (or no kids) and no cats or other dogs. She also loves to cuddle and stay close by. A yard would be great for her as well but she can work with an apartment with proper walks.

History: Zara came to us as a foster and was surrendered by her original owner due to a busy work schedule. We were told that she was dog and cat aggressive, but did not know to what extent. Shortly after having Zara, we discovered we were having our first child. We've had Zara for 2 years and throughout that time, we trained her to the best of our abilities and means, as well as grown to love and adore her. She has a great personality and temperament for the right family. Ideally, people with older kids and/or no other dogs or cats. We believe she reacts out of fear and anxiety, as opposed to aggression. We also believe that with the right family, time and training, Zara will thrive both in the house and outdoors. We have tried very hard over the past couple of years to help Zara with her issues and now that we have a young child, we have even less time and resources to devote to her needs. At this point, we cannot trust her around our baby girl and we recently had an incident where Zara barked at the baby and she previously showed teeth as well. We can't want to wait and see if there could be a worse interaction. This was a very difficult decision and hope that you can help us find a good home for an otherwise great dog. Please contact A.S.A.P.

History: Moomoo was posted on facebook by her "Aunt" who said she had to go ASAP. Her original owner had five dogs, the other four attacked Moomoo numerous times. When her owner died her "Aunt" took her, but was in some degree of homelessness and Moomoo lived in a truck for several months. I got her in January and have been trying to find her a great home ever since. She's living at K-9 R&R Pet Retreat where everyone loves her and take great care of her, but it's not a home!

Aslan

Listing Date: May 23, 2019

Birth Date: January 1, 2009

Breed: DSH

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: Up-to-date

Physical Description: Black and white tabby. Aslan is a three legged cat due to a rare disease called “pillow paw”. He is very healthy now and gets around great on his three legs.

Personality Description: Aslan is up to date on his vaccinations, is neutered, and is in very good spirits! He gets around great with his 3 legs and is so affectionate and cuddly. He is good with other cats, but I am unsure about dogs. Due to having FIV, it would be ideal for him to go to a home with another FIV+ kitty or no other cats. His adoption fee will be discussed with serious potential adopters! He does need to be indoors only due to his condition. Aslan is just truly such a sweet cat. He is such a warrior and has an amazing heart despite what he has been through.

History: Hi everyone! Aslan is currently looking for his forever home! Please take a few minutes to read his story. Aslan was found a couple of months ago as a stray. He is estimated to be 10 years old. I was able to raise money through friends and family to get him the care he needs. He is FIV+ and had a condition called “Pillow Paw” which caused big masses on his paw pads. Due to how far along his condition was when I got him, we had to amputate his front left leg.

Max

Listing Date: May 23, 2019

Birth Date: September 1, 2017

Breed: German Shepherd Mix

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: Up-to-date

Physical Description: Tan with back on head and along back

Personality Description: Max enjoys playing, running, and attention. He will do well with a family that has time to play and take him on walks, and would also do better with a yard or more space than we have to play. He does well with young children (at least toddlers), but does not do well with other dogs (will bark and lunge on walks). He is house-trained and crate-trained, although he does not like his crate very much.

History: We adopted Max from Animal Protection Society of Durham in Jan 2018. Has lived with a toddler since the toddler was 15 months old. He was at a board and train for two weeks last year and follows commands well. Given that we are having a second child soon, we do not feel we can give Max the environment and attention he needs.

Listing Date: May 23, 2019

Birth Date: June 1, 2017

Breed: Hound mix

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: Up-to-date

Physical Description: Shenna is reddish-brown with white on her chest and paws. If you look closely and at just the right angle you can see some beautiful underlying brindle highlights.

Personality Description: Shenna is a beautiful young lady who will melt your heart with those ears and that head tilt! She loves people and particularly loves "her person/people. She always wants to be close by you. She loves to be in your lap or on the couch. legs up snuggling while getting belly rubs. She loves finding sunbeams and stretching those long ole legs straight out behind her getting her vitamin D while enjoying a nice nap. Shenna loves the outside and long leisurely walks. You can see the joy in her as she explores all of the sights, sounds and smells. She loves playing with her toys. Her favorites are the tug type toys that the two of you can play together. She is also a master at capturing and killing those aggravating squeakers. LOL Shenna is good being crated while you are away and sleeps there all night with no problem. Shenna needs to be an only pet. She would do well in a fenced in yard and maybe an older child or someone that can run and play with her.

History: Shenna was picked up by Nash Co. Animal Control as a stray rummaging through trash cans in order to survive. She was scheduled to be PTS before she was pulled. She was very emaciated, full of hook worms and her skin was in terrible condition. She is doing great now!! Shenna is heartworm positive and has started her treatment for this. Going forward, her treatment would only be a matter of insuring that she receives her heartgaurd on a regular monthly schedule.

Pete and Sylvie

Listing Date: May 23, 2019

Birth Date: July 1, 2013

Breed: Mixed

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: Up-to-date

Physical Description: Pete is white with black markings like a Holstein cow, and Sylvie is black with white tuxedo markings

Personality Description: Pete and Sylvie are a wonderful, loving sibling pair. Pete loves to play fetch, snuggle, and “hunt” random objects, Sylvie loves to snuggle, look out the window, and show off her wonderfully soft belly. They both love to run around impressing humans and outsmarting one another. Pete is outgoing with new people and indiscriminate in his affections, while Sylvie reserves her love for a lucky few. They are great around humans of all ages – Sylvie is loving toward babies and children, while Pete is more interested in adults. They are primarily bonded to one another, and spend a good deal of time snuggling, playing, and grooming each other.

History: I adopted Pete and Sylvie as a pair from Wake County Animal Shelter in October 2013. They have not been around other cats or dogs. Sylvie is indoor, Pete is indoor with occasional outdoor. They both use the litter box well and only scratch on their scratching post. Pete has developed an allergy to something in his environment, which is showing up as itchiness on his face. One of our humans is now allergic to cats, which is why we need to find a new home for this wonderful pair.

Kessie

Listing Date: May 23, 2019

Birth Date: January 1, 2017

Breed: Hound/pit mix

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: Up-to-date: rabies, distemper, bordetella, leptospirosis; tested negative for intestinal parasites after treatment

Physical Description: Female; white with tan spots

Personality Description: Kessie is very sweet, very smart, and people-focused. She is great with kids (she is very gentle with our 4-year-old and his friends who come over), loves people and loves cuddling on the couch or on her dog bed. She is very trainable. House-broken and crate-trained. Kessie has quickly learned “sit”, “crate” (goes to her crate), and is working on “stay” as well as pulling less on the leash on walks. She loves walks, running around the yard, and being with people. She gets along wonderfully with our 10 year old dog, and may get along with other dogs, especially smaller than her, but may get intimidated by larger dogs. But: she wants to chase cats, so cannot be in a house with cats.

History: Kessie followed me and my dog home on a cold November morning right after Thanksgiving. She was pretty emaciated and her skin and coat did not look good. She spent the mandatory period in the Durham APS, but did not do well there, losing 4 more pounds in less than two weeks and picking up an upper respiratory infection. We have bailed this sweet girl out and she has been gaining weight, her coat has gotten its shine back and her skin has cleared up. Her kennel cough is also gone. Kessie is a wonderful dog, but unfortunately she cannot stay with us long-term because she does not get along with our cat, and keeping them separated has resulted in a stressful environment for both animals.

If interested in Kessie, contact Kirill Tolpygo at [email protected].


Athena

Listing Date: May 23, 2019

Birth Date: January 1, 2015

Breed: Labrador Retriever mix

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: Up-to-date (Rabies 4/17/18; Bordetella 4/13/18; DHPP 4/13/18)

Physical Description: Physical Description: Black coat with whites patches on chest and stomach and white paws.

Personality Description: Athena is a sweetheart. She’s always happy to see us and our friends and family and she likes to play, but also calms down easily and enjoys relaxing. Athena is a good-natured dog and is a great companion. She's housebroken, sleeps through the night, and loves chewy toys – and she doesn’t chew shoes or furniture. She doesn’t like being crated, but does well during the day throughout the house or outside. She learns quickly, and has done well with an Invisible Fence. She enjoys walks and running after toys and balls we throw for her and enjoys being petted.

History: We adopted Athena from the Orange County Animal Shelter in August 2018. We don’t know how she is around cats. She could use training to help with socializing with other dogs (she desperately wants to play, but doesn’t seem to follow dog-rules about the best way to play). We think Athena would be best in a household with adults and perhaps teens. She responds very well to adults, but has (on very few occasions) growled at or nipped at our kids. We have no concerns about how she is with adults and we trust her with our kids, but we worry that she might nip at our kids' friends and accidentally scare or hurt them. We're sad to be looking for a new home for Athena, but we are hopeful that the perfect match is out there for this sweet dog.
