ASHER- Available For Adoption

Sitting with dogs: Asher

Animal Control officers discovered a 1 ½ year old Shepherd mix wandering alone. The male dog, exhibiting signs of fear and apprehension, was brought into Animal Friends of the Valleys, a shelter in Wildomar, CA. His fearful demeanor initially made it challenging for the shelter staff to approach him, particularly for essential procedures like scanning for a microchip. Lacking a collar, it was evident that he was a stray, lost or abandoned.

The situation took a positive turn when Rocky intervened. Spending time with the dog, Rocky was able to gradually gain his trust. This breakthrough allowed Rocky to scan the dog for a microchip, an essential step in possibly reuniting him with any previous owners. Unfortunately, the scan revealed that the dog did not have a microchip, increasing the likelihood that he had been living as a stray.

In a gesture of warmth and compassion, Rocky nicknamed the dog Asher, a name that signifies ‘blessed’ or ‘blessings’ in Hebrew. The choice of name was particularly poignant, given its timing around Thanksgiving, or as Rocky playfully calls it, ‘Barksgiving.’ This naming symbolized a new beginning and hope for Asher, marking a significant departure from his previously uncertain life.

HENRY Available For Adoption

a 7-year-old Husky named Henry has found a temporary home after being discovered by a good Samaritan. The dog, who appeared to have been wandering for an extended period, was found near the individual’s home. His arrival at the shelter highlighted the plight of stray animals, particularly those who have been on their own for a considerable time. Henry’s condition upon arrival was a clear indication of his long and likely arduous journey; his fur was in notably poor shape, signaling the need for immediate care and attention.

Recognizing the urgency of the situation, the shelter’s groomer, Mel, stepped in to provide the much-needed care. With expertise and compassion, Mel tended to Henry, transforming him from a disheveled stray to a well-groomed and clean dog. This grooming not only improved Henry’s physical appearance but also his overall well-being, significantly boosting his chances of finding a forever home. Henry’s transformation is a testament to the shelter’s commitment to the care and rehabilitation of animals in need, showcasing the vital role these institutions play in the community.
