Foster Features, Week 2

We, at BloomingPaws, absolutely love seeing animals getting adopted into furever homes. We also love to show support for our employees who have taken on the task of fostering these sweet animals, as they await their forever homes.

Catniss3 Catniss1

Meet Catniss! Catniss is a 7 month old, formerly feral, kitten. She needs a forever home that understands her cautious nature. Catniss has been with her foster mom for over 4 months and does not yet know that it is not her forever home. Her brother has already been adopted, so she is waiting patiently with her foster sister. She is a very affectionate girl once she trusts you. She absolutely loves petting and will work hard for your attention. She loves long conversations and will meow with you. She is also very clever and already responds to her name. Catniss would love a home where she can enjoy lots of snuggles and plenty of good food. She is currently being fostered by our Marketing Coordinator, through the Nest.

Scully1 Scully3

Meet Scully! Scully is a little over a year old, tortoiseshell cat. She is a dainty little girl who does not let much phase her. She has been with her foster mom for over 4 months with her foster sister, Catniss and is patiently awaiting her forever home. Scully is the most relaxed girl you will ever meet. She is crate trained, is currently being harnessed trained and she absolutely loves car rides. She gets along wonderfully with small dogs, but is not too sure about big dogs. She takes awhile to warm up to strange cats but once she does, she will not stop playing. Scully would love a home with plenty of laps to sleep on, kisses to give and fun to have. She is currently being fostered by our Marketing Coordinator, through the Nest.

Sylvia

Meet Sylvia! Sylvia is a sweet 4 year old gal. You can tell from this picture just how excited this cute Labrador is! Sylvia LOVES to play, run and destuff toys. This is a wonderfully affectionate dog, but she has a lot of energy that needs a healthy outlet. She would love to be a jogging partner (with some training) and spend time with playful doggy friends. Meet this cutie today!

Baby Girl Calli

Meet Baby Girl and Calli! Baby Girl and Calli came to the shelter together because their owner was moving. We would love to see these girls go home together! Baby Girl is 8 years old and loves to have her belly rubbed. Calli is 7 years old and is a little love bug. Both girls have been with us for 75 days and have reduced adoption fees of $27.50 in honor of Adopt-a-Senior Pet Month!

Cassie Jo

Meet Cassie Jo! Cassie Jo first came to the shelter pregnant and while all her puppies ended up adopted, Cassie Jo has been adopted and returned twice due to destructive separation anxiety issues. Since it seems she was raised around a pack of dogs the shelter wanted to try and see if staying in a house with other dogs would reduce her anxiety while people were away. She does much better with other dogs in the house. She’s a great cuddle-bug and loves napping with her buddies and tucking herself under the covers in bed. Cassie Jo requires an experienced owner and training is highly recommended. She’s not completely house trained but is quite intelligent, requiring both mental and physical exercise. A person who already has dogs is a must to reduce her anxiety and destructive tendencies when left alone.  However she is fairly ambivalent to cats. She is currently being fostered by our Group Play Guardian Supervisor, through the Bloomington Animal Shelter.

Mojo1 Mojo2

Meet Mojo! Mojo, a Sharpei/Lab mix, is a wonderful, sweet and affectionate dog that any family would be lucky to have. He’s housebroken, great with kids, great with other dogs though sometimes he doesn’t know his own strength and is crate-trained. He’s not much of a barker except when he’s playing. He’s still young and has some puppy energy, but he has really low stamina so once he runs his energy out he’s a sleepy ball of mush for the rest of the day. Mojo would love a home with stuffed animals, snuggling, chasing bunnies and furniture for him to sleep on. He is currently being fostered by our Vet, Dr. Victor, and there is no adoption fee.

Kipper1 Kipper2

Meet Kipper! Kipper is a 9 year old Jack Russel/Chihuahua mix. Do not let his age fool you! This guy loves to play and has the agility of a puppy but is very content lounging in your lap and getting back scratches.He is currently in foster care and has been available for adoption for over 40 days. When Kipper came to the shelter, he was severely emaciated and nervous. With time, this old guy has put on a healthy amount of weight and has learned to trust people again. You can find him at our local Bloomington Animal Shelter.

Halloween Pet Safety

halloween

 

Halloween (or should I say Howl-O-Ween?) is almost upon us, so we thought that we should share with you some of the top tips to keep your pets safe on this years spookiest day…

1. No tricks, no treats. Chocolate in all forms can be very dangerous for dogs and cats.

2. Keep Halloween plants such as pumpkins and corn out of reach. While relatively nontoxic, they can produce stomach upset in pets who nibble on them.

3. Don’t keep lit pumpkins around pets. Should they get too close, they run the risk of burning themselves or knocking it over and causing a fire.

4. If you do dress up your pet, make sure the costume isn’t annoying or unsafe. It should not constrict the animal’s movement or hearing, or impede his ability to breathe, bark or meow. Take a closer look at your pet’s costume and make sure it does not have small, dangling or easily chewed-off pieces that he could choke on.

5. Keep pets confined and away from the door. We recommend that all dogs and cats be kept in a separate room away from the front door during trick-or-treating hours. Too many strangers can be scary and stressful for pets and lead to escape or injury.

6. Don’t leave pets out in the yard on Halloween. Surprisingly, vicious pranksters have been known to tease, injure, steal and even kill pets on Halloween night. Inexcusable? Yes! But preventable nonetheless.

7. IDs, please! Always make sure your dog or cat has proper identification. If for any reason your pet escapes and becomes lost, a collar, tags and/or a microchip can be a lifesaver, increasing the chances that he or she will be returned to you.

8. Keep your outdoor cats inside several days before and several days after Halloween. Black cats are especially at risk from pranks or other cruelty-related incidents. In fact, many shelters do not adopt out black cats during the month of October as a safety precaution.
