What should your foster's bio say?My name is Andromeda and I am a feisty girl. I love to play and romp around the house. Having toys would be the best bet for me. I love everyone and love to play in the yard.What did you implement for house training? Do you think it's working?Andromeda has not done #2 in the house for a few weeks. She will start whining to let us know he knows to go outside. She uses the pee pads to go pee but has gotten better on holding it. Night time is harder since she waits to see someone before letting you know. We use pee pads in her night time enclosure.Have you introduced them to a crate? If so, what kind of crate and what was their reaction? She has a create to sleep in at night with a space to go out and pee (w/ pee pad). We have not left the house because Covid but she does whine a little when I stick her in the crate to clean. He loves people and wants to be with them all the time.How many hours did you leave them home alone? What was their behavior like when left alone? We left her in the enclosure (w/ her two siblings) for 3 hours. She did fine. Because she is still a puppy, make sure she has a place to pee. When she gets older she will get better.What is their behavior like with other animals? She is very interested in other dogs and wants to be friends. We have no cats, so we are not sure.What is their behavior like with new people and/or children?She loves everyone. She was great with my 3-year-old niece who was excited to see her. As a puppy, Andromeda, in turn, became overly-excited, but she calmed down in about 5-10 minutes. Is there anything else that you would like the new adopter to know about this dog, such as any special tricks or adorable traits? She is very feisty and wants to play a lot. A home with someone there all the time or another doggy friend would be good. Remember, she is a puppy and likes to chew but she does not do it hard on her people.

What should your foster's bio say?Shy kittens need love too! Chrissy is a very special girl, hoping to find the perfect home! Chrissy is shy around new people, and in new situations. She will run away, and she may even hiss. But don't let her shyness fool you! Under that fear, there is a loving, cuddly kitten waiting to come out!Chrissy is a beautiful tortie with sparkling green eyes. She has absolutely gorgeous markings, and silky-soft fur. She is a petite girl.Poor Chrissy takes a little bit of time to warm up. But once she does, she is one of the biggest cuddlebugs you will ever meet! She loves laptime, will lean into pets, and will loudly purr with delight. Once she trusts you, Chrissy will even ask for attention. She will softly trill, or politely tap your shoulder to remind you to pet her.Chrissy is not shy about playtime! She loves to chase balls, feathers, and mice, and will dive in the air after wand toys.How does your cat react when being held? How does your cat feel about being picked up? With new people, Chrissy is pretty nervous being held. She will try to get loose and run away. But once she trusts you, she enjoys being held and cuddled.How do they play with you? Chrissy loves toys! Wand toys are her favorite, and she will jump very high to catch them.What is their behavior like with new people and/or children? : Chrissy is VERY shy around new people and loud noises. She would probably do best in a quieter home.What is their behavior like with other animals? Chrissy has only been introduced to cat & kittens. Once she realized that they aren't going to hurt her, she gets along great with them! Because Chrissy is shy, she does really well paired with a more confident cat/kitten that can take her under their wing.What kind of litter box setup did you have for your cat? How would you describe their success using the litter box? Chrissy has perfect litter box manners and has never had an accident. Chrissy and her litter use an uncovered litter box. She has used different types of litter (paper pellets, unscoopable clay, scoopable clay) and has done fine with each one.Is there anything else that you would like the new adopter to know about this cat, such as any special tricks or adorable traits? I've fostered many kittens before, and Chrissy is one of my all-time favorites. She is one of the most loveable kittens I have ever met. Once she trusts you, she forms a REALLY strong bond, and will reward you with lots of love, snuggles, and affection! Because she is fearful around new people, Chrissy needs to find a patient home that is willing to give her a little time to warm up. I promise, Chrissy is worth it!!!

Personality: Cruiser is a very happy and playful boy. He loves people and enjoys playing, but when play time is over he loves to be a lap dog and just curl up and keep you company. I cannot vouch for him to be potty trained but he handles being in a crate and having alone time quite well. Cruiser loves adults and kids and other dogs but he prefers to not share his food bowl.History: Cruiser's been living in a foster home with adults, children, and other dogs. Dog/Cat Skills: When Cruiser first arrived he was ready to join my dogs for playtime and they all got a lot of exercise wrestling with each other. He does try to chase the cat in his foster home though. Leash Skills: Cruiser handles a leash quite nicely and enjoys his outings in the neighborhood.Medical: Cruiser has a condition called luxating patellas. This means that the knee cap is loose and may move in and out of place spontaneously as he walks. Typically, dogs with luxating patellae walk normally until the patella moves out of place and then hop or skip for a few steps until it spontaneously returns to normal position. Cruiser has been diagnosed with periodontal disease (also known as dental disease). This disease is extremely common in dogs and cats, especially as they age. Cruiser had a dental cleaning recently at HSSV. At that time the patient the teeth were evaluated for fractures, and periodontal disease. Teeth that were determined to be unhealthy were removed. The adopting family is encouraged to discuss continuing dental care for this patient with their family veterinarian. Cruiser presented to HSSV with a large mass on the left hind limb. The mass was surgically removed and submitted to a veterinary laboratory for analysis. The mass was found to be a Subcutaneous Mast Cell Tumor. Studies indicate that with these circumstances, the tumor is unlikely to recur. However, this dog should be monitored for any new growths on a routine basis. Ready to meet Cruiser ?

Personality: Cupid is a social and outgoing cat who thoroughly enjoys his time with people. He approaches readily and will circle you for attention while marching in place excitedly. Cupid is a huge fan of water, especially running water, and would appreciate being offered his favorite drink in several variations. He also loves being pet so much, he'll flop over and offer his belly for admiration; just be sure to look and not touch! This handsome boy loves to lounge, but also has energy in reserve for playing to pass the time.History: Cupid was transferred in from another shelter.Cat/Dog Skills: Cupid has not been around other cats and dogs while in our care, but he does have a laid back nature. Medical: Cupid has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). FIV-positive cats frequently appear healthy for many years and may live a full lifespan with proper veterinary and preventive care. Cupid also has a history of drinking a lot of water and urinating large amounts in his litter box. It is important for Cupid to have access to fresh water at all times, and to have access to multiple large, clean litter boxes. Without access to freshwater, Cupid can become dehydrated very quickly.Cupid is doing well with a normal appetite, a stable weight, and he stays hydrated by drinking water on his own. Cupid's new family should provide his medical records to their family veterinarian, and they are encouraged to speak to their family veterinarian to explore options for advanced diagnostics or treatments.Cupid's care is sponsored by Nithya Ravi and Ann Rohrbach.

Personality: Dancer is a sweet calm cat that is looking for a home that enjoys the finer things in life. She loves to snuggle into a soft blanket and take cat naps. She loves food and will follow you around and beg for more! She likes being near her people and enjoys napping nearby while her foster is working or hanging out at home. Dancer occasionally will pounce on stuffed mice or bat at a cat wand or rope. She sometimes likes to groom her yarn toys. Dancer can get too excited if being pet for too long so we recommend giving her breaks. Her fur will stand on end and she will swat or nip at you to tell you when she's had enough petting. History: Dancer lived in a foster home with a 9-year-old and 13-year-old and did well. However, she is not recommended to go home with young children due to her tendency to nip when she's had enough petting.Dog/Cat Skills: We have not had Dancer around cats or dogs while in our care. Medical: This cat had a surgical procedure called a femoral head and neck ostectomy performed on 8/26/20 on her right hip due to a severe fracture of the hip joint. It is possible that she may always have a slightly abnormal gait in her right rear limb. However, this is no longer causing any pain and she is not on any medications at this time.
