Special Care Needed for Special Animals

We need some extraordinary people and loving homes for these very special animals.


Eustes came to us as a stray from the Mt. Vernon area. When he arrived he was completely matted and appeared to have been so for quite some time. He was shy, scared, and not sure what to do with himself; he curled up into a little ball and never made a noise. After he had some time to adjust to his new environment, he let us clip his mats and get him cleaned up. Eustes is completely blind (he has cataracts in both eyes), and he will need to have most of his teeth extracted as well. None of this has stopped him from becoming a happy and affectionate pup! We do not know his story, but we do know that he deserves to live out the rest of his life in a forever home that can show him what it's like to be truly loved. 

Please, can you help him?

Even if you can't give him a home, any donations would help us to provide medical care to Eustes and others like him.


 Jane and her Kittens

Jane was brought to us as a stray on 08/12/2015. The very next day she gave birth to 3 beautiful little babies! While we love watching them grow into sweet little kittens, they really need to be somewhere away from the other kitties where they have space to grow and play and learn. Fostering will require an approximate 3 month commitment, and you must live in Skagit County. Please come out to the shelter to fill out a foster application if you are interested.
