PET OF THE WEEK: BANJO

Banjo is our KMUN, THE ASTORIAN, 94.9 THE BRIDGE, WARRENTON KIA, HITS 94.3 KRKZ, and CLATSOP NEWS Pet of the Week for the week of September 15.

We are all excited to announce that Banjo is now available for adoption. He’s been at the shelter since last year, but he hasn’t been available until now because of skin problems due to allergies.

Banjo has sooo many admirers at the shelter who are pulling for him to find that perfect home where he will be adored and pampered. He loves his walks and will make a great hiking or running companion. And after that he’ll curl up to next to you for snuggle time (he likes to burrow into the blankets in his kennel or just drape them over himself while he sits and watches what’s going on around him.) He’s a champ in the car, something he’s proven over and over again on same day trips to and from the canine allergy specialist in Portland. He’s also calm and very patient during bath time.

He was the official greeter at our gala dinner last June, saying hi and getting head rubs from everyone as they came in. He eventually ended up at the CAA board member table (we couldn’t resist some under-the-table treat feeding).

Banjo is a Lab/Pit Bull mix between six and seven years old, surrendered because he has issues with cats, so he’ll need to be in a cat-free home. He may be picky about other dogs in the house and will need to have a meet-and-greet with any potential canine siblings at the shelter. Because of his allergies, he will most likely need medication for the rest of his life. But this affectionate boy has so many good qualities he’ll be worth the extra cost and effort.

PET OF THE WEEK: MILLIE

Millie is our KMUN, THE ASTORIAN, 94.9 THE BRIDGE, WARRENTON KIA, HITS 94.3 KRKZ, and CLATSOP NEWS Pet of the Week for the week of September 8.

Veteran cat room volunteer Diane tells us, “Millie is a mature, quiet, short-haired pure white lady cat who is so well behaved and sweet. In addition, this girl has been declawed, so would be an inside-only pet. She so appreciates any petting and attention she gets and will be an easy-to-get-along-with friend.

PET OF THE WEEK: WILLOW

Willow is our KMUN, THE ASTORIAN, 94.9 THE BRIDGE, WARRENTON KIA, HITS 94.3 KRKZ, and CLATSOP NEWS Pet of the Week for the week of July 28, 2019.

Wonderful shelter volunteer Janet tells us…”Willow is a lady! There is no other way to explain her. She has poise, grace, and serenity. She presents with such composure and calmness. Should you spend an afternoon with a good book, Willow would consider the time well spent. Funny how she conveys wiseness. Willow would be such an asset to any home.”

SUCCESS STORY: MAX

Alfred says, ”I was walking down the main street of Cannon Beach and stopped to view a poster in a window. It was a poster of about a dozen dog faces posted by the Clatsop County Animal Shelter. One of the faces looked a lot like a favorite dog we owned 25 years ago, Oscar. We lost our last dog, Moses, to old age about 1.5 years ago and I was having “dog withdrawal symptoms.” My wife not so much. She was enjoying the freedom of not having a dog to care for. We live in Yamhill County but I made the trip to Warrenton anyhow to view a prospective new family dog. It turned out that “Alex” was not going to be an ideal fit. I liked Alex and he liked me but he was quite young with high energy in need of a lot of training and I felt that my wife would not approve. However I was shown another dog, just taken in, named Max. Max also reminded me of Oscar in many ways and was much more docile than Alex. About a week later I persuaded my wife to drive with me to see Max. We were given the opportunity to walk him and my wife, while still not pleased to take in another dog, did agree to let me have Max. The emphasis here is that he was to be MY dog and she was washing her hands of any responsibility. It was a quiet drive home with Max. Miracles do happen! By the end of the same day, Max, through force of his charming personality, had my wife wrapped around his little claw! Turns out that Max is a ladies’ man and my wife is now as glad to have Max as I am.

I want to thank Clatsop County Animal Shelter for the opportunity to obtain Max. I was impressed with the operation of the shelter. Clean, bright facility with cheerful staff and volunteers…a pleasure to work with. And clearly, the posting of portraits in store front windows worked for us and Max. If you are in search of a new home companion please give Clatsop County Animal Shelter a serious consideration. And even if you are not in need of a companion consider supporting CCAS with your donation of funds or time. They are good people doing good work running a needed service on a limited budget.”
