Goldilocks (but no Bears!)

We aren't quite sure what her full story is, but it looks like Goldilocks wasn't trying enough of the three bears porridge- she was just skin and bones when we came across her. Each rib was defined, each hip bone protruding, and if there was an ounce of fat to be found, it wasn't on her! She's only a week into her recovery, but this sweet girl has already put on some weight and is letting her personality shine. Click here to read about Goldilocks and see some more photos!

Dogs Are More Like Us Than We Think

It's likely no surprise to dog owners, but growing research suggests that man's best friend often acts more human than canine.

Dogs can read facial expressions, communicate jealousy, display empathy, and even watch TV, studies have shown. They've picked up these people-like traits during their evolution from wolves to domesticated pets, which occurred between 11,000 and 16,000 years ago, experts say.

In particular, "paying attention to us, getting along with us, [and] tolerating us" has led to particular characteristics that often mirror ours, says Laurie Santos, director of the Yale Comparative Cognition Laboratory.

Frosty Watermelon Bones

The perfect summer snack- watermelon! Mix up these easy fruity treats for your summer loving pup and watch them enjoy the fresh taste of coconut and watermelon without the mess!


  • 2 cups seedless watermelon (pureed)
  • 1 cup coconut water or milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)

1. Scoop out watermelon – it must be seedless. Remove seeds if any, but save yourself the trouble and buy a seedless watermelon. Add to blender and puree until smooth.

2. Add coconut water/milk (Milk was used for the treats pictured) and honey to blender and pureed watermelon. Blend well.

3. Pour into ice cube trays and cover with plastic wrap or bag to avoid spillage. If you’re using hard plastic ice cube trays, you’re safe from most spillage. But if you’re like me and used silicone bone molds, you’ll need something flat to lay them on. If you don’t, you’re looking at a sticky mess on your floors and freezer. Before you pour, put the silicone mold on something flat that you can move to your freezer, like a cutting tray or a piece of cardboard. Instead of lifting and placing just the flexible silicone mold, you can pick up the stable surface area instead.

4. Freeze overnight.

5. To remove from tray, let sit on counter for a few minutes to loosen frozen treat. Twist tray to remove treat from mold.

Big Thanks to Amy Tokic at PetGuide for the recipe!

Looking for someone to play a game of Old Maid with you? Then this little Miss might just be the one! Miss Old Maid with her white hair and laid back demeanor is the perfect dog for someone who just wants a friend to keep them company. Originally picked up by Animal Care Services, when we first came across this sweetheart she was missing some hair, was tired of sitting in a kennel, and really just wanted to go home. The folks who passed this girl by didn't know what they were missing out on!

Miss Old Maid is a sweetheart who loves to hang out with you. She'll follow you from room to room, sit when you sit, and if you're into jaunts around the neighborhood, she'll walk wonderfully on the leash. She's crate and house trained, well past her puppy chewing, and loves everyone she meets whether they're old, young, big, small or anything in between. She can keep up with the big dogs, or chill with the small dogs, or even hang with the cats! Miss Old Maid also enjoys long naps and if you're just spending time at home, she'll curl up on the end of the bed and sleep. A refined older lady, Miss Old Maid is a great companion. Fill out your application for this darling today!


Perla came to SNIPSA a small fluffy pup who stole her mom's heart at an adoption event. Her big brother Kobe wasn't sure what to make of her at first, but after a year they've become best friends!

"We celebrated Perla's 1st Birthday yesterday. She had a party with all her friends from the dog park and we took her to the river. She loves to swim like you wouldn't believe. Here's a pic from the day we got her, and now. She has been the joy of our lives. Just wanted to thank you! "

3 Events Into The Year and We Haven't Slowed Down Yet!

It was a cool morning this time, no rain to pester the folks lined up outside, and the heat wasn't quite awake yet- making it a perfect morning for a Big Fix! Aside from the stray pup we picked up mingling with the dogs in line, all the owner and their pets were happy faces driving our volunteers and staff to work harder and harder. Check in was smooth sailing and surgery began around 8am.

Although we were a little short-handed throughout the day, our volunteers busted their humps and helped us spay and neuter, vaccinate, and microchip 286 pets! Surgery finished a little later than we're used to, but by the end of the night the pets were home, the gym was clean, and we were all ready for bed! Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped keep the Big Fix running, cooking delicious food to keep us fueled, and of course to all the vets and technicians who make sure every pet receives the best care available while with us.

We couldn't have done it without our amazing volunteers, wonderful Veterinarians, fabulous techs and of course our superb and oh so tired staff!
