Thank You Jack DeCelle and Hero!

This is Jack DeCelle & his Aussie pup, Hero. Jack just turned 7 years old & for his birthday he decided to ask his friends to bring him pet supplies instead of birthday presents to donated to SPOT  for the care of our dogs & cats.  What a thoughtful & generous thing to do!

THANK YOU, Jack, the SPOT cats & dogs & our volunteers think you are a very special person for thinking of us on your special day! We hope you have a wonderful year!

This was a very special ending to Mothers' Day!


About 8:30am on Sunday morning one of our volunteers got a call from a local vet tech about a dog that had been brought to her. On Saturday her friend had found a small dog stuck deep in a bramble bush.


The dog was whimpering & sounded like a puppy to this woman & her husband. When they got the dpg out of the brambles they didn't know what to do with her so called our mutual friend, the vet tech. However, she too was not set up to care for this little dog & so called on SPOT..


Upon meeting to transfer the dog, it seemed as if something was wrong. She was very unstable on her feet & seemed to have limited vision at least.  Although she did look well cared for.


The volunteer decided taking this little one in for a vet to examine was the safest next step in case some medication was necessary & to check for a microchip.


To everyone's delight, she had a microchip .... that was 13 years old, but at least we knew her name was Corky. We were all surprised to get a call back from an owner almost immediately!


Corky as it turns out was over visiting grandma from Desmoines, WA.  Her owner had taken her out for her morning potty break & she had slipped out of her x-pen in the yard & wondered off.


Her owners' had spent 2 days looking for her & were devastated at not knowing what had happened to her.  When tearfully reunited on Mother's Day evening Corky's owner explained that she was virtually blind & deaf .... & 17 years old!


After happy hugs & kisses Corky's owner said, " You know what Jack Russell are like, I 've never lost her in her entire life .... She waits until she's 17 years old!  It was so terrible not knowing what happened to her...thank you, thank you for bringing her back to me!"


Now, THAT is a rescue story! Happy Mothers' Day.

Featured Dog  

Lilly Pad is a sensitive young girl who came to us through the grace and caring of her owners. Her sister developed a mobility limiting issue that was going to change her ability to run and romp with Lilly so instead of giving up the pet with the issue, they tearful gave Lilly into our care to find her a dedicated, forever home. Lilly has lovely house manners and is good with other dogs. She has hasn't lived with young children but has done well with family gatherings that included grandchildren. She does love to run and has lived on acreage. So we'd love to find her a rural home. She is a little timid but it just results in a gentle, sensitive dog. Lilly is affectionate and such a sweetheart! Some fortunate person or family will think they have found a treasure in her!


Stats: Yellow Lab mix, spayed female, current on specific vaccinations; parasite control, and micro-chipped. Weight: 80 lbs. Age: 2 yrs. old. Adoption amt.: $175.00

Featured Cat


Pickles is a very sweet 11 month old kitten. She is a bit shy and reserved, but once she gets to know you, she's very affectionate and appreciative of scratches and rubs. In fact, she gets silly and rolls around and does somersaults while purring like crazy! She is very playful but does not enjoy being held at this time - but she's learning. Pickles would do best in a quiet home where she can continue to learn how to be a cat. She is fine with cats and should do OK with well mannered dogs. Older kids might be OK too. She is litter box trained and ready to go home today.
