Pet of the Week



Meet Jake...


The true definition of the word orphan is associated with a death. Though a loss of life is not the only reason an animal can become orphaned, it might be the most heart-wrenching. Pets orphaned by sudden death of a pet-parent immediately miss the life they’ve always known. That comfy bed, special kibble and warm affection they’ve come to depend on are luxuries replaced by a cold animal shelter, the hard floor for a bed and clanging stainless steel bowls at feeding time. The environment and the strange sounds are unfamiliar, upsetting and of concern to many dogs and cats that once knew LOVE.

Jake became orphaned a few months ago. Residing in his home alone for the past 2 months, his care has been sporadic as friends and family have attempted to tend to his needs. With no options for rehoming within the family, he was surrendered to animal control where he is receiving appropriate vetting, medical testing, vaccines and his neuter. This far too skinny boy is more concerned about love than treats and he wants to go home. Might he be going with you? Don’t delay … let’s get this deserving boy out of the shelter and back into a loving home today!

Pay It Forward For Pets is a 501c3 non profit organization that helps improve the lives of both people and “rescued” pets through special programs. The organization manages 6 programs that directly benefit the public and offers human resources and funding to county shelters and local rescue organizations in collaboration efforts to expedite adoptions and end euthanasia.

Note: Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home. For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks. You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity. We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy. Assume they know nothing and begin at step one. You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need kindly work on with your new family member. It's called commitment! And, that's what these pets want more than anything!
