2_Lady_MainPhotoHello! My name is Lady and I’m quite the lady. Hehe. I’m a total sweetheart that gets so excited when I’m being shown love and attention. I get so wiggly! It’s totally adorable. I love to give kisses and be in the company of people. It is so much fun. I’ll calmly sit and wait for you to come my way and then once you do, that’s when the wiggling begins! I’m great on a leash and love to go for walks! When I go on walks I love to sniff things. It’s fun to pick up all the difference scents out there in the world don’t you think!? Since I like to explore, I’d be a great dog for an outdoorsy person that enjoys exploring too! We will have so much fun with one another! I really am a sweet gal with a respectful demeanor, but who also gets excited and will gently jump on your lap to give you slobbery kisses! If you are wondering how I am with other dogs, I’m decent with others. I’m a pretty independent lady but I’m not going to react to dogs walking near me or even next to me, I just don’t really enjoy playing with others all that much. I just like people WAY more! I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with a person or family and I’m hoping it’s you!

Ebony_MainPhotoThis week’s featured Pet is Ebony, a 7 year old office assistant who is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Plus her adoption fee is waived!

PLEASE share this post. This cat is a piece of work! NO ADOPTION FEE! Ebony has been spending her days lounging around the Woods administrative offices and she’s just too smart. Every single morning, she uses our phone’s intercom system to meow until someone lets her out of her office. We don’t know how she does this! She has also left repeated voicemails for our humane education coordinator. Again – we don’t know how she does this and how she consistently dials the same extension. If you need an office assistant with mysterious powers, this cat is for you! Ebony is declawed in front and is looking for an indoor-only home. She’s about 7 years old and can’t wait to meet you! Woods is open from noon to 6pm 7 days/week. Come visit us at 875 Oklahoma Avenue in San Luis Obispo. (805) 543-9316

Ebony’s Story-

Hi there, my name is Ebony. It’s hard to say just what brought me here to Woods. I lost my home and family about a year ago, and a local vet hospital tried to find me a new family but then I came here. I’m very shy but very sweet and my previous owners had me declawed in the front so I need to be an indoor only cat.

It’s a good thing that I am an experienced Administrative Assistant. If you come to meet me at Woods you won’t find me in the cattery or one of those cat condo things…no way! You see, there is just too much work to be done with running an animal shelter and after sitting and watching the busy staff at Woods for a while, I made the decision to walk down the shelter’s administration hallway and report for duty. At first, the shelter’s HR department looked at me with a sideways glance…I mean, it isn’t every day a cat walks in looking for a job and all. But, once I delivered my resume and cover letter, I was quickly offered a position assisting Woods’ Development Manager. The past few weeks have been very busy but don’t worry, I am keeping the hoomans out here focused and working hard. I am currently organizing fundraisers and building donor relations. It turns out I’m quite good at typing and filing too! Recently I figured out how to use the intercom system and use it to notify staff when to let me out of my office–I also figured out how to leave messages and frequently leave them for the shelter’s Humane Education Coordinator (the silly hoomans out here don’t even know how to use the system by the way).

You know that feeling you get when you just need to stand up from your desk and walk around a bit? Yeah I get that feeling a lot…but what’s great about working for Woods is that there are always plenty of those silly dogs who hang out in the other offices (who literally don’t do ANYTHING except lounge and sleep all day by the way) to pester.

I know the good folks out here at Woods appreciate my expertise, attention to detail, and time management skills…but, I would much rather have a home office environment to work in. Could that office be yours?

My adoption fee is WAIVED so how about stopping by to check out my resume?

How cute is this? An African lion, a Bengal tiger, and an American black bear have become BFFs while living together at Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary in Locust Grove, Georgia. Shere Khan the tiger, Leo the lion, and Baloo the bear have grown up together at the sanctuary for the past 15 years.
According to The Dodo, the animals were discovered as cubs in a basement in Atlanta during a drug raid. They were all less than a year old. Their rescuers determined that their injuries at the time were too severe for them to be reintroduced into the wild so they have been living together ever since. An employee at the sanctuary told the website, “All three are still equally affectionate with one another.”

Due to an overwhelming demand for tickets, Luke Bryan has added a second show at Boston’s Gillette Stadium on July 15th. The Boston concerts, now taking place on July 15th and 16th, are the first of six stadium dates taking place this summer on Luke’s Kill The Lights tour. Shows will feature openers Little Big Town, Chris Stapleton and Dustin Lynch.

Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets for the July 15th show through Citi’s Private Pass Program from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. today with a public on sale beginning tomorrow at 10 a.m. at ticketmaster.com.

In addition to Boston, Luke’s stadium concerts include August 19th in Minneapolis, MN at U.S. Bank Stadium; August 27th in Chicago, IL at Wrigley Field; October 22nd in Arlington, TX at AT&T Stadium; and October 29th in Detroit, MI at Ford Field.

In other Luke news, the guys of Buck Commander decided it was a good idea to prank their fellow member on a recent visit to a deerstand. They planted a live rat in one of the guy’s backpacks and asked Luke to reach into it for some supplies. While it freaked him out a bit, he didn’t completely lose it. He did manage, however, to get bitten by the rat.

Jacks_MainPhotoJacks

This week’s featured pup is Jacks, a 2 year old Miniature Pincer/Italian Greyhound mix.

Hello! My name is Jacks, also known as the one-eyed wonder! Yup, that’s right, I only have one eye. Let me tell ya, it doesn’t stop me from living my life to the absolute fullest! I enjoy every single day and I enjoy romping around and having a good time. I like to go for walks and enjoy the outdoors with a person. I think only have one eye makes me unique and I’m still adorable, at leas that’s people tell me and what I also think of myself. I’m a really sweet boy that loves being in the company of people. I love to be pet and be shown affection. It brings me so much joy. I really am a sweet guy that has all the love in the world to give and I want to give that love to you!

Cyrus

This week’s featured Pet Pal is Cyrus, an 8 year old American Pit Bull Terrier Mix who is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped….plus he looks like a panda bear.

Howdy! My name is Cyrus! I feel like maybe my name should be Panda since I look just like one, or at least the staff here at Woods say I do. I’m a super sweet boy that craves human companionship! I enjoy being with a person majority of the time and going for nice walks! I love exploring the outdoors and smelling the roses. I just want somebody I can chill with and hang out with. I just really like to take it easy. I mean I’m 8 years old, so I’m not the type of dog that is going to be bouncing off the wall. I’m totally down to just kick it with you and watch TV. I can’t wait to find my forever person who I can spend my days with just taking it easy.

Lilly_MainPhotoHey there – My name is Lilly. I’m a cat. A Calico to be specific. You can call me Lilly. That’s me – Lilly the Calico cat. We Calico are generally considered beautiful – I mean – it’s obvious in my case – right? And well – it does make me blush – but – we Calico are known as being warm-hearted, affectionate and intelligent. Ah shucks. But – of course in my case this is certainly true. And – if I must – we Calico are described as having sweet and endearing personalities. Oh my. I rather like that – sweet and endearing indeed!

But – lest I am accused of speaking in generalities (see – there’s that intelligence part) I suppose I should tell you a few little tidbits specific to this one specific Calico – me – Lilly. Let’s see – in case you haven’t already figured this out – I’m real friendly. Oh my yes – real friendly. Not one of those shy little wallflowers – no siree. This little lady is sure of herself – confident – outgoing. I mean – come on – I’m a Calico after all. And watch out – will purr when petted! Tee-hee – just can’t help that one. Oh yes – I purr and purr and purr – thank you very much. And watch out – will nip when petted TOO long. Oops. Well – geez – what can I say? Calico ARE cats. It’s just a little over stimulation issue. Just a wee tiny one. Really. Just a little bitty issue. No big deal. Not to me, at least. Tee-hee. But heck – just give me a minute to compose myself – get my Calico back on so to speak and we’re good to go.

Oh yes – good to go. Back to the sweet – enduring thing. Back to my warmhearted – affectionate – intelligent little Calico self!
