An important part of Our Pal’s Place mission is to provide educational services to the community with the goal of ending the killing of animals in county shelters due to pet overpopulation. Part of our education includes the importance of spay-neuter. A fact that our Community Outreach Lead, Dee McGowan, provides is 10,000 babies are born on average every day and 70,000 puppies and kittens are born every day. This means that each baby born must have 7 puppies/kittens in order to provide homes for the animals vs euthanize due to overpopulation. A female Collie mix was not spayed and had a litter of 5 pups who now need homes. The father is a Husky mix. These pups are super,super cute!! They have been in a foster home since birth, are well socialized with cats, dogs and kids, and are almost house trained. Cowboy is the biggest of the litter and more dominant than the other siblings. He is quite a cute character! Because he was always in the middle (literally) of his litter mates, we never noticed that he was blind. After the majority of his litter mates were adopted and he was moved into a new room in our facility, we noticed he ran (literally) into walls and other objects. His blindness explains why he barks more when he is alone…he is calling for companionship and help. Cowboy is amazingly smart and very resilient. He does not allow his blindness to hinder his puppiness! Please come meet this cute guy!
