Dog Gone Fabulous!

The month of April is finally here and for some, it marks the beginning of Spring, when the colorful flowers burst forth after a long, cold, winter. The springtime can be a beautiful celebration of new growth and rebirth. But for others, it marks the time of preparation for the many new puppies and kittens brought into local animal shelters.

This year, April holds one major holiday, as well as some you may have not known about like National Adopt a Shelter Pet day on April 30. We would like to highlight this day in particular, with hopes of helping some pets find their fur-ever homes, which is why we have done a very special makeover segment for this month. Each pet pictured has called Cimarron Valley Humane Society home for some period of time. Thankfully, our Certified Pet Groomer, Hannah, has volunteered to give these pups a very special makeover so that they may be ready to be adopted into their new homes!

Meet Sutton, a five month old neutered Maltese. His favorite pastime is to be cuddled and held as he is very much a lap dog! He is not good with small children, however he does well with other dogs. Sutton was up for adoption, but he found his fur-ever home, just one day after his transformation!


Snowy is an approximately three year old, neutered Long Haired Chihuahua. He is also a lap dog and a little shy, but his kisses are oh so sweet! Snowy does well with other dogs, cats, and older children. He enjoys playing once he becomes comfortable with his surroundings.


Hunter is a ten month old, neutered Border Collie mix. He is a very high energy pet and LOVES to play and wants be involved with whatever activity you are doing. Hunter needs to go to a home with someone who has the time to give him the exercise he needs. He would make a great running partner! However, he does not do well with smaller children.


Sissy is an approximately nine year old, spayed poodle. Sissy was just recently surrendered to Cimarron Valley in rough shape. But with Hannah’s help, she can start Spring with a brand new style! She has a very sweet and friendly disposition, but does NOT like to be crated, so a stay at home pet parent would be the perfect fit for her.


All these sweet fur babies are updated on vaccines as well as spayed or neutered.  If you see your next four-legged family member please contact Cimarron Valley Humane Society, a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 corporation that operates a no-kill shelter and foster care program for stray, abandoned, neglected, and surrendered dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens.  Trinity Veterinary Hospital and Pet Resort supports many local shelters and rescues and encourages all animal lovers to support the homeless pet population by donating time, money, or opening your home to one of these pets in need!
