Welcome, Athena

When our foster space opens up, we reach out to over-crowded shelters, where the need is great. This time, we had 4 pregnant dogs to choose from. We had to choose.

Athena won. WE won.

Look at that sweet face! This is a really great dog.

Athena jumped out of the transport van, explored the entire backyard and did all of her business. It had been a long drive, and she kept her kennel clean. Her paperwork tells me that she’s an Owner Surrender. That means, she wasn’t picked up as a stray on the streets, fending for herself, rather, she lived with a family, likely in a home. She loves us! Athena follows us around, enjoys human interaction, leans in for more ear scratches.

Maybe she learned these skills with her original family, maybe she learned this at the Fresno shelter. Either way, we get to help her raise her family and help her find a great next home.

Athena is one of many. So many shelters are experiencing a population surge; they really need our help.

Follow along with us, as we give Athena everything she needs. Enjoy the puppy shenanigans to come. Share, adopt, hang out. It’s a group effort and we are so honored to be part of this experience.
