The connection was instantaneous. Cheryl Wild took one look at Dolly and was smitten. “I heard there was a Pomeranian in the adoption kennels and I thought it might be my missing pom, Juliete. It wasn’t, but this little girl looked so sad that I couldn’t leave her.” Dolly is anything but sad these days. She makes herself perfectly at home with Cheryl, Steve and canine brothers William and Sammy. “She was afraid of toys when she arrived,” says Steve, “now she even plays tug with the other dogs.” Dolly was a trembling unclaimed stray. She wasn’t potty trained, and didn’t really know how to be a dog. “She’s learning fast from the boys,” says Cheryl, “and she’s so sweet. She has definitely become one of the family in a very short period of time!” With run of the house, regular grooming, and a pile of toys, that status seems to agree with this dainty little girl!

Save the Date! Walk for the Animals, Sept 26, 2010 - NHS Campus

8:30 to noon • Don’t just talk the talk, walk the walk. Walk for the Animals is our biggest annual “fun”draiser. Gather pledges, grab your best friend and enjoy a great morning on our NHS meadow. Fuel up with Pancake Man, shop Vendor Village and if you raise $300 for membership into Club 300, you’ll receive special VIP status. Then walk the Keystone Trail on a beautiful fall morning. It is fun and it’s rewarding because every dollar you raise stays right at the shelter to help care for homeless animals. Support Walk for the Animals and make a difference!
