Someone resting in a house while another goes to work
A young calf standing by its mother

You won't have a problem finding a gentle or sociable pet at the shelter. You might have the idea that all the animals there have something wrong with them. If they aren't diseased, they must be vicious. “That's just not so,” according to Toni Troy, who volunteers at the Ferndale Shelter. She says that the majority of its inhabitants are sweet and fearlessly affectionate. Good pets are often abandoned by selfish owners who move, have a change in their family situation, or dump the litters after letting their animals breed. Sometimes people just decide that they don’t want a pet any longer, even if that animal has been with the family for years. Other animals wind up at the shelter because they strayed too far from their homes and their families can’t find them.
