The shelter understands the uncertainties and impact of life, and often witnesses the consequences firsthand. As the only admission center in the county, they accept every animal, many of whom have been surrendered due to life-altering events. However, they do ask a little of the community: try to rehome the pets first, contact local rescues, provide a detailed description, and be honest about surrendering beloved pets.
Ken, a four-year-old brought in as a stray, is discovered to have a microchip. Contacting the registered owner revealed a heartbreaking story. Ken's owner, going through a divorce and move, left him behind with her ex-husband, who then turned him in as a stray. Despite this, Ken remained a loving, cheerful, attention-seeking dog who was good with others, yet he received only minimal attention during his 64 days at the shelter.
Despite being abandoned, Kane never lost his ability to love. The shelter believes there is someone out there for Ken, a home that understands the commitment of owning a pet. Ken seeks affection more than treats or toys, he craves touch and cuddles, and craves warmth and companionship.
