About Bilbo Baggins

Hi I’m Bilbo Baggins! My siblings and I were part of a feral colony in Tremont, but we were recently caught and brought to the SPCA. Because of our stray background, we are a little bit afraid of all the loud noise here at the shelter, but we love the food though! I have the real potential to be a sweet boy in a patient home of my own, I just haven’t been given the chance! At the moment, I’m stuck in a cage. I like to hide in my cardboard box it makes me feel safe from all the scary sounds outside. My siblings and I will move into a room soon after we recover from our Spay and Neuter surgery. Do you think you have the perfect quiet home for me where I can learn to trust you and my surroundings?

Jemma is an old fashioned dog.  What does that mean?  Well, back when some of us were kids, people had dogs to guard the house.  These were dogs that barked their heads off whenever someone came to the house.  They got put in the backyard when visitors came, and we were told to leave them alone so they wouldn't bite us.  We listened.  These were fine dogs who were good with their family.  Nobody dressed them up in tutus or put them in strollers or gave them birthday parties with their doggie friends in a gazebo.  Today, these dogs would be called reactive or aggressive and they are really hard to adopt out.  Jemma has bitten strangers but she has never offered to bite familiar handlers.  In situations where any dog might bite (such as being accidentally fallen on, trying to trim her toenails) Jemma has kept her cool. She will be a terrifically loyal friend and a good dog if you keep her at home and keep strangers away from her. To make Jemma into a different dog is going to take a lot of time, patience, and commitment but is theoretically possible.  Jemma been evaluated by 3 trainers and has a training plan.  She learns quickly and trusts her handler.  She has gotten to know various new staff at the SPCA without issues.  We love Jemma just the way she is, and hope someone else out there can appreciate her too. Jemma has specific adoption requirements.  For more information, please call and speak with the Animal Care Manager. Many times folks will fall in love at first sight with a dog and feel sure that they can work through behavior issues.  We wish that was enough for a happy-ever-after story.  Our advice when thinking about adopting a dog with challenging behaviors is to consider how much you would need to alter your lifestyle to accommodate the dog's needs.  If significant behavior change is required on YOUR part, that is already a big barrier to forming a successful relationship with a new dog.  Compatability is key. show less

Midnight Snack came to us at the beginning of the new year, and sadly her luck has not gotten better within the age of 2021. She is our longest feline resident, and probably will be for some time. She was brought in when her owner passed away, and her family couldn’t take care of her. Midnight has chronic diarrhea and has been in and out of the vet the whole time she’s been in our care. We have been trying different foods as well as medications to see if anything will work for poor midnight. She has the loudest purr and loves to cuddle and sit with her favorite humans. Midnight does not like other cats or dogs, but she will go wild over her person and a warm spot to nap! It will take a very special home to be able to take care of our girl. At the moment, she is getting frequent enemas as well as fluids to keep her hydrated. Midnight is also going to be starting a steroid treatment, and hopefully, that will bring this poor girl some relief. We realize that it will take her a while to find the perfect home that is able to deal with all of her medical problems, and we are open to foster to adopt until we get her issues under control, but we all would appreciate someone taking over her medical costs. So we thought we’d start now. What do you think, do you think you have it in your heart to care for Midnight Snack? show less
