One day someone saw me being shaken and dumped out of a crate only to be abandoned at the Moab City Dog Park. I was so frightened that it took almost one and a half hours to rescue me. After that I was deathly afraid of everyone; even those who rescued and cared for me at the Animal Shelter. Because I am so tiny (barely weigh six pounds) and was so scared, I stayed at the back of my pen avoiding contact with everyone. Then one day a volunteer visiting Moab came and worked with me to help me get adopted. At first I was scared, then it felt safe when I was being held and cuddled. I even learned to walk with a leash. Then the weekend came and I had to wait until my volunteer came back. When she returned, I discovered something about myself. I loved to be cuddled and get kisses! I got to go with my volunteer for a home visit and was told how smart and sweet I am. And the next thing I know we were signing my forever home adoption papers!!! I now live on a ranch in Texas with my new mom and dad. I get to travel in style and go for walks and hikes. I play with my new doggie toys and sneak off with a sock now and then! I play a lot with my big 50lb. brother “Chief” who is super gentle with me. I have discovered what it is to be loved and have a regular life. I am now more curious than afraid and enjoy things like checking out the fall leaves rustling around and stretching out in soft grass. Oh, I love to see and bark at myself with a wagging tail in mirrors! I want to give big thanks to everyone at the City of Moab Animal Shelter and the Humane Society of Moab Valley for taking great care of me during my stay.
Archie showed up just in time for Halloween! This black kitty with golden eyes was picked up in Arches National Park recently and brought to us to help find him a more suitable home.

We have an adorable litter of kittens, all ready to be adopted. Four kittens in total, these siblings all have unique markings, as you can see.

Come by and meet this rambunctious crew!
This is Cleo! 6 years old, this sweet girl was brought to the shelter a few days ago. She loves to swim and play with rope toys.

Sir Thomas is a dignified, elegant, and refined gentleman who even has a goatee. If he could talk, he would ask for a top hat and bow tie to go with his gray and white tuxedo. He is a big, greenish-eyed boy with an even bigger purr, especially when he sits on your lap. He has a non-transferable skin allergy that crops up from time to time. We hope that it will clear up when he gets in his own home.
