Goldie

Name: Goldie
Primary Breed: Golden Retriever Mix
Gender: Female
Adoption Fee: In permanent foster/hospice care: no longer available for adoption

Update January 2016:

After showing signs of failing health, it has been confirmed by our vet that our beloved Goldie is full of cancer. Her age, combined with her rapidly deteriorating health, is leaving us with no realistic treatment options. At this point, we are hoping to keep Goldie comfortable and pain-free for as long as we can.

Goldie is very familiar and seemingly comfortable with shelter life, but we feel she deserves the chance to live out her last days in a quiet and peaceful home with someone that will be able to monitor her health around the clock.

We have found a foster home for our Goldie that will serve as hospice care for her as her illness progresses.   A local woman who has spent a considerable amount of time over the years volunteering with Goldie has taken her into her care.   Goldie knows this woman well and we feel that Goldie will be able to make the transition into her care and into her home.  We will continue to monitor her health and well-being and will keep everyone updated as to how she’s doing.

We feel that we have done all we can for Goldie over the years and have always done what is in her best interest.  She has known a good life in our care, and considering the life she came from, the shelter life has been the best care she’s known.

We truly appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received for Goldie in the time she’s been with us and can only hope that she leaves this life knowing how much we all cared.

Birth Date: 5/2013
Adoption Fee:  $135.00  *Pre-paid, no fee

Full Description:   I came in as a stray and the staff is still learning about me. I don’t really care for the other dogs here, but I do great with people. My kennel is always clean and dry so it appears as though I am house trained. It was clear from my condition when I came in that I did not receive the best of care in my previous home. I am in need of a new home where I will be loved and taken care of! Please call the Mason City Stray Animal Shelter at 641 424-3617 for more information. Photo courtesy of Tyler Trenhaile

Entry Date:

Birth Date:

Adoption Fee:
$135.00 *Pre-paid, no fee

Full Description: I’m a good dog who is just misunderstood. I act a bit crazy through my kennel door, but do well once I am out. I do need an experienced dog owner who knows how to work with me. I was untrained and received no guidance as a pup. I respond well to training and am very teachable! I do the best with women and men ( I really like men the best) who are confident with me. The right home is a must as I don’t care for other dogs here at the shelter.  I am house trained. I should not live with small children as I come on too strong with them. Please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information.

Primary Breed:
Chihuahua Mix
Gender:
Female
Entry Date:

Birth Date:
2006
Adoption Fee: 
Pre-paid, no fee*

Full Description: I am an adorable and sweet little girl, but sadly I come with a few issues. I will need someone to fully understand my needs in order to adopt me. I was returned to the shelter after being adopted about 3 years ago. I lived with a family with children and a cat. The cat and I really did not care for each other too much. I adored my kids, but got very protective of them and have nipped at other children that I did not know. I am not a fan of people that I do not know and act pretty tough. I would prefer a quiet home without a lot of “stranger” traffic. If you can offer me the home that I need, I promise to be a loyal and loving companion! Please consider me! Please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information.

Mr. Gibbs

Mr GibbsName: Mr. Gibbs
Primary Breed: Husky/Coonhound mix
Gender: Male
Entry Date: 1/5/16
Birth Date: 2/16/2013
Adoption Fee: Pre-paid, no fee*

Full Description: I’m a beautiful boy who longs to be close to someone. I love my owner whole heartedly, but miss them when they leave me. This means that I have trouble with separation anxiety once I get comfortable with you and my new home. So far, a kennel in the house has not contained me. I don’t want to live my life outside as I do well inside your home when you are home. On a positive note, I am already house trained:) I am a Husky mix, so running loose outside full time is not an option for me.  In the right situation I would be a great dog! I can be choosy as far as liking cats and other dogs, but I definitely like some. No children please. Feel free to call to discuss my needs. Please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information. Photo courtesy of Arickx Photography.

Adoption Fee:
$135.00

Full Description: Just look at this face and those eyes, need I say more? Well…… just one other thing, I am deaf. Not to worry though, I am highly trainable using hand signals. I love all people, but I need to be an only dog. I have been around children my whole life and do great with them. If you’ve ever had a deaf dog, you know just how easy we are to train and how attentive we are to our owners. A fenced in yard is a must though so we can’t run off. Please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information. Photo courtesy of Tyler Trenhaile.

Yep, us Huskey’s sure do like to run! I was taken in by some nice people who tried their hardest to keep me, but it just didn’t work out. Try as they might, I simply don’t get along with other animals. I prefer to be the king of my castle and prefer to live alone. A fenced in yard is a must for an athletic fella like myself. If you think your home meets my needs, stop by and spend some time with me! Please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information.

Adoption Fee:
$135.00

Full Description: Although I was loved, my family was not able to care for me the way I deserved to be taken care of. A lack of money prevented them from getting me proper vet care, even after I was hit by a car. They said that I am house trained, good with other dogs, cats and kids. I guess that makes my odds of getting adopted pretty good! I have lots of energy as a young dog should! Please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information.

I’m a beautiful girl so stop in and see me!  Please call the Mason City Stray Animal Shelter at 641 424-3617 for more information.

I’m currently in fostercare.

Full Description: Do you have room in your heart and home for a sweet senior dog like myself? At age 14, I was given up because I was not able to receive the proper care that I deserved. I was in terrible shape and desperate for some vet care. Taken straight to the Vet, I began my journey to recovery. No one else deserves a happy ending more than me. I am sweet as can be and get along well with other dogs. I don’t see well due to a nasty eye infection that I had and chronic dry eye. My teeth have all been removed, but I feel much better now. I will be on canned food the rest of my life, but that’s not so bad :) My health concerns have all been taken care of, so now I am just your average senior boy! I encourage you to meet me as I am sure to melt your heart.
