Humboldt County Animal Shelter overcrowded-dogs at risk & need adoption Featured

Written by 

According to information received by KMUD News:

The Humboldt County Animal Shelter is currently over crowded and must reduce its animal population. Some dogs are facing euthanasia and need to go to rescue organizations, either because they are not doing well in the shelter resulting from the chaotic environment (dogs barking, sounds of pressure washer, etc.), or they have workable issues that take more time than an over-crowded shelter can give. Other dogs are current adoptable dogs; however, when the shelter is so over-crowded they are also at risk.

Anyone interested in any of these dogs is encouraged to contact Redwood Pals Rescue using the information provided below. The dogs are in the Humboldt County Animal Shelter. All of these dogs will be current on vaccinations, spayed/neutered and micro-chipped before transport. Redwood Pals Rescue can help with transportation of dogs taken by rescues.

The photos below show two of the dogs available for adoption:

My name is PUMPKIN. I am a spayed female dog. I am mostly white in color, and the kennel staff describe me as a pit bull mix. I'm described as sweet and good-natured and  like to walk, fetch or just hang out in the yard. I know that dogs sit in the back when riding in a car and would love to hop in your car and go home with you!

   My name is MOON. I am a neutered male dog. I am mostly tricolor in color, and the kennel staff describe me as a beagle.
