Dexter is still in need of his forever home. He has come close a couple times, but he is a special-needs dog.

Dexter is about 3 1/2 years old and has heart disease. He is on heart medication 2 times a day (cost is about $15 a month.) Dexter came to us from the Derby Rosd Rescue in Middletown. He has come a lost way. From a dog that had no clue what trust or love was, he now knows that he missed out. He has learned to accept love and has learned to trust. Dexter is sweet, full of personality and has learned to love going for walks and being away from the shelter itself. The building itself was Dexter's safe haven, however, taking baby steps he has broadened his horizons. Dexter can't over exert himself, and needs to be in an environment where there aren't many steps. We would consider a permanent foster, but would love for Dexter to be adopted. He has exceeded most of our expectations but his lifespan will most likely be shorter than most dogs. For some this might be a deterrent. But whoever takes Dexter into their home and their hearts will get a very special dog.

Please remember to visit Petfinder.com to see the majority of our adoptive animals. Thank you to all the volunteers that are helping at the shelter during the summertime and a special thanks to the volunteers who are spending extra time with our incredible cats. An update on Belle the cat who I've had on Facebook. Belle was diagnosed with Fatty Liver Disease over a month ago. Belle has been and is still living with me right now and was being tube fed every 6 hours until today. She has taken a turn in a positive direction and now being fed every 12 hours. I appreciate all the positive thoughts and prayers for Belle. If anyone would like to contribute towards her medical bills, it is greatly appreciated. We have regular dog walkers for night time, but could use one or two more committed people who might want to commit to a night of dog walking. We don't have enough coverage if someone was to get sick, or goes on vacation. If you are good with dogs please consider volunteering a night for dog walking
