  • Bison #A1911762 another terrified dog. Again. Very cute. Brendl. No signs of any aggression. Or defensiveness. Just timid. Need some confidence building. Some trust. Hopefully he finds a home sooner than later. Today was his first time out of the kennel. I think others will be soon taking him out seeing how gentle he is.

  • I just found out Chata has been marked urgent… She has until 12/16 to get out… After that date she is not safe. She will require someone committed to her and maybe even a senior Buddy. Call shelter ASAP for details.


    Posted @withrepost • @tomkiesche Chata #A1872038 helps us test pup after pup see a plethora of videos of her playing with different dogs. YouTube. Facebook. Instagram. Key and her #ID number. 😢Chata has been returned again and again because she seems to stress outside the shelter environment. She’s going to need someone willing to let her go through that for as long as it takes. 😢 she has been such a hero for us. Such a legend. She deserves to retire in style. A rescue might be best. Someone who knows dogs. Somewhere she can go through whatever she needs to go through. For as long as it takes.

  • Lou #A1913092 I don’t know the whole story what got this pretty little female to our shelter. But… She has a behavior mark. You can see how nervous she is and this was when she started warming up. I don’t know what kind of dog she’ll be… My guess is fun. But she is tight right now. Maybe a week from now she’ll be looser. Hopefully if someone adopts her they will not push her quickly. They will not rush to hug her. They let her build trust. There is a whole process of decompressing dogs. Getting them used to you. Not forcing yourself upon them. Dogs are like any creature… If someone force themselves upon you you probably wouldn’t like that very much either.

  • Our society is under anesthesia. Do we even care anymore about the human condition? There is not enough being done to combat the many nightmares that plague communities in our nation and all over the world. Suicide, social injustice, civil right intrusions, genocide, modern day slavery, drug abuse, child abuse, terrorism and many more monstrosities need our action and microscopic attention. Something more must be done to help those suffering from inhumane misfortunes. #pleaseshare, #pray, #followthemovement, #giveahelpinghand, #endsuffering, #uplift, #civilrights, #savetheplanet, #inspiredaily, #motivationalmusic, #positivity, #musicliveshere, #turnup, #giveback, #philanthropy, #changealife, #makeadifference, #motivate, #spotify, #youtube, #itunesmusic, #applemusic, #amazonmusic, #deezer, #tidal, #jobastomusic, #drjobasto, #newmusicmonday, (at Seattle, Washington)

  • We’re hoping KONG might send us a bunch of durable new toys in the future… but we also always need volunteers willing to stuff those we have with food. Maybe this is a future Girl Scout, Boy Scout, school trip, family project…

    How could anyone not love seeing happy dogs?

    New dog (?) unnamed?

  • GoughNuts gave us a number of toys to give our toughest chewer and @mrb_and_friends bought a bunch from a recent fundraiser to benefit dogs at North Central. These are some of the happiest dogs instantly. Other dogs just wanted to go out while we were at the gate. But we’ve seen them chewing on these toys as well.

  • This big boy had a check up done by a leading vet expert. As he has been rescued by #pantheraafricabigcatsanctuary from the brutal canned hunting industry. He now resides at this top sanctuary being looked after by passionate staff and well respected in his space with educational tours being done with pre-bookings only.
    To ensure that the world knows what cruel practices are legal and should be banned forever. More then 8000 lions being bred for the bullet. Less then 3000 remain in the wild in South Africa. Watch the documentary blood lions for more info.

  • My honest truth about anxiety

    So as most of you know, I have briefly mentioned mentioned my anxiety. Well lucky for you, ya’ll get a whole blog post about it. There is so much stigma and misconceptions about anxiety that it is sickening. Like people, come on, it is 2019, almost 2020, please change your mindsets about this. Mental health is just as important, or even more, then physical health. In some cases, mental health is either the make of break of someone’s life. I think that in this day and age, this should be taken a hell of a lot more seriously than it has been. 

    I have high functioning anxiety. There, I said it. As an adult in their early 20′s, looking back, I am seeing all the red flags, triggers and early signs of my anxiety. I wish I would have had someone in my life who understood and knew about it so it could have been handled and approached appropriately at an early age. One of the first signs was socializing. When my small family would go out to eat, I would often bring a book or a Nintendo or something to entertain myself. I would focus on that item and that item only. Otherwise, I got super nervous. I could hear every plate scratch, every single bite, and every conversation. My brain was not able to filter these sounds and I didn’t know how to handle it other than distract myself. I was often told by older relatives that I should talk and be more respectful at the table and not play around. Obviously this came as a big slap in the face to me at a young age because if I tried to explain, they would say ‘”it is all in your head.” I’ve heard that excuse a lot. I don’t enjoy family gatherings either. They ask the same damn questions every time. “How is work/school?” “Still no boyfriend?” etc. I once was asked about how my fall semester of classes was going. I replied, saying mostly well except I was having to commute alone everyday due to a friend having a different schedule and it sucked. Despite me being vocal and answering their question truthfully, they bashed me by saying “well that is what you get for choosing a community college that far away.” After that, I had a panic attack in the bathroom and spent the rest of that ‘gathering’ in the bathroom hiding. I have hated those gathering since. As a child, I would obsess over a certain item. If I didn’t know where it was, I needed to find it right then and my brain would not rest until I found it. This lead to me staying up till 1 or 2 in the morning searching for that one item. It could be as useless as an extra $10 calculator but I just had to find it. This happened numerous times over the years over various items. I would often get told “you need to calm down.” Which honestly did nothing but piss me off and make me want to look even harder.

    I didn’t fully comprehend my anxiety until college. Compared to most of my other classmates, I chose to go to a community college. I wasn’t able to afford a university and due to my mom’s health, it just wasn’t an option at that time. Don’t get me wrong, community college was great and I made some good friends and memories while attending there. But at the time, I was frustrated, confused, and anxious about the whole situation. I excelled in my classes early on. I was even able to take a few extra classes and do a few independent studies which I am thankful for. At that time, I had wanted to graduate and go one to be an agriculture teacher. My teachers could see me excel and try my best on everything. I was picked to be a representative for our department to introduce guest speakers at a conference the school was hosting. I said “no” repeatedly but my teacher had other ideas. A few of the other students told me “to get over my anxiety. and that it wasn’t a big deal” My teacher told me about how even though he teaches us everyday, a small class of maybe 15, he still had issues handling it mentally. That floored me. How could a teacher have anxiety and be nervous about speaking in front of students when that is the job that he chose? He was finally able to talk me into doing it. I dressed nicely for that day; the conference shirt, nice jeans, and a cardigan. I was given cards with a little blurb about the guest speaker. I sucked it up and did it with confidence. I got a few compliments from people that I knew saying I did an excellent job . When someone is struggling, like I was, positive reinforcement means a lot to someone. 

    As an adult, my anxiety is still there and makes its appearance regularly. When I am super stressed at work, my anxiety gets super high. Some days I have the “I don’t give a shit” attitude and others I am constantly worried or obsessing over something minor. And it seems lately that it is either one or the other. And honestly, it sucks.Often I wish I could just tell my brain to be quiet for just a few minutes.Some days I will talk your ear off and others I won’t speak a word to anyone. I am very thankful for a few good friends and coworkers who understand my anxiety and it means the world to me. When approaching someone with anxiety or someone who is having a super off day, it is super important on what you say to them. Please do not say the following

    1) It is all in your head.

    2) You need to calm down.

    3) Get over your anxiety, it is not a big deal.

    Please, please, please do not say these things. We are not purposely trying to panic over the small stuff, it is just how our brains are wired. And do not poke at the people who have to take medications for their mental health. It is just as important as someone taking a daily allergy medicine or what have you. These medications really do help. Yes, it takes a while to find the right medicine and the right dosage but they can make a difference. But whether you chose to be on medications is totally up to you and your physician. But lets be honest people, EVERYONE IS GOING TO HAVE AN OFF OR BAD DAY. That is just how it works. Everyone handles things differently. So please be more considerate and kind towards mental health issues. Thanks.
