This the season......We have the greatest adoptions team and kennel staff. The animals depend on them for their care in the shelter and their ability to find them the very best forever homes! Yesterday, a visitor came to our lobby with a cake, holiday card and happy pictures of WARL alums, now named Roxie and Bailey. People who work in shelters do so because they love animals. And, cake! Many thanks kind adopters.WARL dogs are getting new tug toys thanks to Ross Elementary School 4th grader, Noemie. She braided toys for the dogs. The toys are a bit different than the usual braided tugs, these are stretchy. Noemie used cast-off leggings. Leggings with holes are the perfect material for tug toys, Noemie explained. The spandex in the leggings makes for fun stretchy tugs. Kozy Girl, WARL alum and regular classroom visitor, checked out one of the toys in the classroom and declared the toys dog-tested, winners.
