LOVE IS IN THE AIR AT YOUR LINCOLN COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE ANIMAL SHELTER!
Provided by LC Animal Shelter
Valentine’s Day is upon us and your Lincoln County Animal Shelter is abuzz with romance. The couples theme is no longer just a marketing ploy; our shelter pets are pairing off left and right while waiting for their chance to walk off into the sunset to their forever homes.
Billie Jean and Hank are breaking pitbull stereotypes and turning heads with their new found romance. These two long term residents had met in passing once before, but Billie Jean did not think much of Hank. Weeks later, Billie Jean and Hank were set up on a blind play-date and it was pure chemistry. These sweet “pitties” are now in full on puppy love, enjoying long walks together and sharing a water dish after romping for hours.
Aspen, our longest term dog resident, finally found love with a handsome giant of a Lab mix named Ronan. Although he was dealing with the most fickle of ladies, Ronan won Aspen over with his rugged good looks, easy going ways, and very simple brain! Even Boomer, our illustrious greeter cat, has found himself enamored of our weight loss queen, Barbara Ann, who has been living in the office for the past few weeks.
Some of these pairs came to us already bonded. Chad and Alex, senior Chihuahuas, have been best buddies for years. Not all relationships are perfect, of course. Alex is completely dependant on Chad, but Chad wouldn’t mind seeing other dogs. Princess Peach and Frogger, best friends forever, came to the shelter having lived together for many years. Imagine a couple of little, old ladies, husbands long since passed, sharing a home, sitting in their rocking chairs, knitting quietly together. Although they quarreled on occasion, these two gals could not stand to be apart.
A purr-fect example of story book love, Edward and Bella seem to have been meant to be together before they were even born. Like so many young lovers, Edward and Bella only have eyes for each other.
We are hoping there will be many more love stories over the horizon for our shelter pets and their future families! Your soul mate could be waiting at your Lincoln County Animal Shelter so be sure to make a date to come in and find out!
