Goldie

Name: Goldie
Primary Breed: Golden Retriever Mix
Gender: Female
Entry Date: 01-09-2013
Birth Date: *2003
Adoption Fee:
 $110.00

 

Full Description:  Abandoned by my previous owner and left to perish, I have since been rescued by a team of some mighty fine people.

As a result of my past I have lost my tail, but that is the least of my worries. What concerns me most these days is that I won’t ever find a family who will cherish and adore me, always keeping my best interests in mind. I so want, and deserve, at least that.

Do not let my age fool you, I am full of energy and eager to live life to the fullest. After spending some time at the shelter, it has been determined that I cannot live with other dogs or cats. Due to my past, I suffer from some anxiety. I will require a lot of time, love, and patience. Although they have received many applications for me, they have yet to find just the right fit. If you think that you can provide Goldie with her forever home, please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information.  Photo courtesy of Arickx Photography.

Starlight

StarlightName: Starlight
Primary Breed:
Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador mix
Gender:
Female
Entry Date:
3/15/2013
Birth Date:
2009
Adoption Fee:
$135.00

I went on KIMT today for the “Pet of The Week”.  It was awesome getting to be the STAR!  I did a really good job and gave my friend lots of kisses for taking me with her.  She even took me to McDonalds for a cheeseburger ;-)  I am really a happy girl here at the Humane Society, but I have been here a year now and I really want a family of my own…”Starlight, Starbright..bring me someone to love tonight”.

Full Description: My life was recently spared when I was transferred here from a vet clinic who saved my life. I was found as a stray in their city and the local shelter had no room for me.  I know just how lucky I am and will be forever grateful for a second chance. Just like most Pit Bulls, I am loving, resilient, and aim to please!  I cannot live with small dogs, but might be willing to meet dogs my size or larger.

Full Description: Due to an unfortunate family situation, I am here looking for a new “leash on life”.

Adoption Fee:
 $135.00

Full Description: Remember me?  I was adopted from the Humane Society last summer and (unbeknownst to the shelter) was shuffled around from home to home. Somehow, I managed to get away and ended up back here as a stray. I got a bad break and they are looking for a better situation for me. I am sad to be back, but I’m enjoying being pampered, walked, and bathed by the staff.  Please don’t let my barking scare you away; I am just a bit dramatic and very excited – I love people and children of all ages, and I even get along with cats and most dogs!  I am a lovable lap dog (once I get to know you).  Can you give me a second chance at a forever home?

Birth Date:

Adoption Fee:
$135.00

Full Description:

As you can imagine, I have a very keen sense of hearing with these big ears! All kidding aside though, I like to think that I have a sweet face and eyes that lead right into my soul.

Everything was going great in my home until the new baby arrived, sadly things started to go south after that. I have a history of doing well with older kids, but have never lived with them. I never hurt my new baby, I just started acting out in other ways to seek out attention.

I am a high energy dog who requires lots of walks and exercise. I am house trained and know several commands. I am a really smart boy who is easy to train. Although I like to learn, I need an experienced owner who can be the “alpha dog” of our relationship. I really am a sweet and beautiful boy, stop in and meet me today. Please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information.
