Two Hounds Need New Homes

Two Hounds Need New Homes

Saving rescued dogs is close to my heart. I'm hoping with some help we find good homes for these two hounds? They are with a dog Rescue Group in the Valley and both dogs can be brought to their prospective new owners. The first one is Katie, a Catahoula. This summer she has a new favorite hobby - diving and swimming. She is command trained. And Needs an active Owner. The second girl dog is a Red Bone Coonhound, Georgia.

This is what the Rescue Says about Georgia:  GEORGIA  ON  MY  MIND

At approx. two years of age, this gorgeous Redbone Coonhound has had some hard knocks.  She was abandoned and is in need of a secure, loving forever family.

If you can be her gentle, but firm guide to the world, this pup will bond with you – responding to your mood and tone of voice.

Coonhounds are very sensitive creatures and want to please their people.

Baby gates are attached to the doorframes of the different offices at the SPCA.

“We all get to bring our dogs to work, which is really great,” SPCA Director of Public Relations Lesley Kirrene said. “It’s beneficial and it keeps you mellow, kinda keeps you down to earth … It’s a great place to work, it’s really a lot of fun.”

The SPCA is a local non-profit organization that took care of over 13,500 animals in 2010. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to the taking care of the animals, the SPCA holds different programs, organizes a spay and neuter clinic, places animals in homes and hosts multiple fundraising events throughout the year.

Kirrene’s job is to make sure the public knows about the SPCA’s different programs.
