Meet Edward from the Meridian Canine Rescue

Everyone wave a paw for Edward!

This little man is as scruffy and handsome as they come. He’s about 5 years old, and he just arrived from California.

His previous shelter provided the following info:

“Edward was loitering at the local 7-11 and was finally apprehended by the authorities (aka Animal Control). Being on the run for several weeks, Edward welcomed the accommodations of the animal shelter. Aaaaah! A warm blanketed bed, tasty bowl of food, and a Kong toy slathered in creamy peanut butter. He may be safe and comfortable but ultimately wants to go back home or find a new home where he will be loved and cherished.” With his distinguished gray beard and appreciation for the finer things in life, Edward’s fugitive days are long behind him. If you’d like to make him part of your family, stop by the Meridian Canine Rescue for a meet-and-greet during our open hours. We don’t yet know how he feels about dogs, cats, or kids, but we’d be happy to introduce him to you.”

Meet Octavia from the Idaho Humane Society

Octavia is a 3-year-old, 15-pound spayed female domestic shorthair mix. She was brought to the shelter as a stray and is a little shy when you first meet her.

However, if you take the time to open her kennel door and get to know her she becomes incredibly loving and affectionate. She loves scratches behind the ear and along her back. Octavia enjoys snuggling in laps and would be happiest in a calm household.

You can meet Octavia (#41171845) in Cattery Kennel 103 at the Idaho Humane Society, 4775 Dorman St. The shelter is open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
