Animal Shelter Volunteer

These are my dog pictures & stories from volunteering at Alachua County Animal Services in Gainesville ~ Beth
Annie is busy watching the dog in the other yard at the shelter. She doesn’t have time for pictures!

It didn’t take long for Pink Floyd to find a home! He was adopted this week! It’s great when really good dogs find homes quickly.

Rocky came to ACAS as an adorable puppy in 2010. Now he’s back as a grown up dog. His owners fell on hard times. Rocky is house trained and has lived with another dog. She’s at the shelter too right now. Rocky likes to plop down on the grass and hang out in the yard at the shelter.

Pink Floyd tires out after giving numerous doggie kisses. Love this dog! He’s at alachua county animal services waiting for a home. The shelter is at capacity.

My new best buddy at the shelter. Pink Floyd is a super huggable dog. Just a big sweetheart.

This is my dog Odie. He’s 16 1/2 now and we’ve had him since he was a puppy. Lately his appetite has waned, but he’s still chowing down, just at a very slow pace. He’s been to the vet twice in he past few days. Odie has pancreatitis and his kidneys are misbehaving a bit. He’s blind and might have cushings disease as well. Despite all that Odie is still a feisty, fast moving dog.  Hang in there little guy!

Bronson is sooo cute!  He’s a big dog, about 6 years old, and is such a happy guy. He gave me a drooly kiss but who cares if a dog this cute and sweet drools a little bit.

This little lady, Rita, is so adorable.  She’s been at the shelter a few weeks already.

Today is orientation day.  We have 4 folks coming to help out with dog photography!  Yay!  Also there’s an off site adoption event so maybe Rita will find a home today.

Some of these faces pictured here go pretty far back.  I think the puppy was taken when I first got my camera.  Not sure what happened to these guys but I hope they’re all in good homes.
We have an orientation this weekend!  We could really use someone that can take photographs of the dogs.  It has been just me for the past month or so and I cannot keep up with them all by myself.  We also need people that can let the dogs and cats out of their kennels. Both are fun volunteer jobs!

Yesterday I met Rover.  He’s a good and talented dog.  He can catch treats in mid air and shake.  Rover is quite lean but he’s got a handsome, shiny coat.  Like Hank from a few posts back, Rover has sprinkles of white fur on his face.  We spoiled Rover yesterday and had him out for about an hour.  He ended up laying down with froggy legs extended out and he had a content look on his cute sprinkled face.
