Shelter Tales with Barnaby

Hey everyone, it's Barnaby your faithful shelter dog for the Lillian Allbon Animal Shelter!

The generosity of people has been amazing and we thank you so much. The special online auction organized by Laura Helpard and Lisa Allen raised a whopping $9,100 for the shelter babies. We are barkless and meowless (get it?).

To all the people and businesses that donated auction items, and those who bid we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

A big thank you goes out to the gang at Maritime Mosaic for selling tickets on an awesome gift basket with all proceeds to the shelter. The draw for the basket with all those great items was made at Maritime Mosaic and the lucky winner was Sunda McCarty.

Congratulations to cat Greyson as he went off to his forever home and cats Punky, Tarzan and Woof as they went off to their new families. And happy tails to long time shelter resident dogs Charlie and Shadow. These beautiful dogs finally found homes and we are so happy.

Now if we can get dogs Oreo, Haven and Bubbles adopted we will be happy campers.

Our pet of the week is cat Deeno. Deeno is a two-year-old male cat with distinct markings that give him so much character. For more information on Deeno or any of our animals please stop out to the shelter as we are open daily to the public from 1 to 4 p.m. Or you can call us at 902-661-PAWS.

That's all for now, until next time keep your tail in the air and your heart open wide and don't forget us here at the LA Animal Shelter on Smith Road. We are the little shelter with the big heart.
