Tug O'Shanter here wishing you all a happy and safe St Patrick's Day. I had a great home visit yesterday. Maybe the luck of the Irish will be on my side and I will soon be in my forever home. Where is that blarney stone when you need it. Have a good one today. Love Tug
Bella is sporting the green today to celebrate St Patty's and to humor her foster parents. She would love to join you for some corned beef later tonight and every night. Check out her bio for more information.

Creek sure is one handsome gentleman! Of course, we have no idea what breeds he may be made of up of – guesses have ranged from dalmatian, to hound, to boxer, to pointer. He may just be a true Heinz 57! Creek came to us from Rosie’s Red Lake Rescue where he was brought in by a Good Samaritan who found him injured and hungry.
Creek is a very smart dog and quick learner. When he came to live with us, he didn’t even know “sit.” He can now sit and stay and has been doing great with boundary training – he will even stay out of the kitchen while you are preparing food. Although his hilarious deep sigh of resignation will you know that he is not happy about it! Creek also just graduated with flying colors from an obedience class at the Canine Coach that helped him become better socialized with other dogs.

|Sheeba ... the welcoming committee|
at the adoption event on Saturday!
I am one of several 'bloggers' for the Pet Haven cat and dog blogs. I have been blessed to be a part of this incredible organization for over 4 years and have taken on a variety of roles and responsibilities over the years. Recently I have discovered a passion for photography ... so I thought ... how about combining my passion and desire to learn more about photography with my passion for helping animals??!! And that's what I have done, and in many ways feel like it's the best volunteer job one could have ... yes, then again, i'm a little biased :) I get kisses and purrs from these beautiful beings while trying to capture their spirit and their essence. And then I throw the photos into a video and put some music behind it to hopefully highlight these very special beings who desperately need for us Humans to be a voice for them and to give them that little boost in helping them find that very special person(s) who can provide them with their own home ... a forever home they hope, and a home with someone who will love them as unconditionally as they will love you.
I hope you'll join us in being a voice for these homeless dogs and cats. For now, they are being loved and cared for by their foster families but their wish is to have a family and a home of their own. Please share the video below with your family and friends.
Also, if you would like to learn more about volunteering email us at volunteer@pethavenMN.org. We will be having a new volunteer orientation on Saturday, 3/12.
In the 4+ years I have been volunteering with Pet Haven, I have received so much more from these incredible creatures who have taught me so much about life/living, compassion, community and the importance of giving back to causes we believe in and being a voice for the voiceless. There are many ways you can support Pet Haven or any other animal rescue: adopt, foster, donate, volunteer. I hope you consider one of them.
