CAT & DOG OF THE MONTH
Each month Almost Home features an exceptional cat and dog of the month. These animals are selected because they are particularly deserving of adoption…either because of their unique personalities, popularity among staff, particular need for a permanent home, or length of time at our shelter. This month’s picks are shown below. For more pictures and information, select the applicable link below.

Smoke and her two littermates, Ash and Soot, survived a house fire. Smoke’s ears were burned by the intense heat but are healing well. When examined, it was discovered that Smoke has a grade 4 or 5 heart murmur most likely meaning that she has a congenital defect in the development of the heart. Smoke will need to undergo surgery.
Callie Briggs was injured in a domestic incident in December 2020. She suffered a broken jaw, and damage to the optic nerve of her left eye. While she was undergoing surgery, the vet also found a malignant mammary tumor which was removed. Callie is recovering from her surgeries and remains just as loving and sweet as can be. Her jaw is wired shut until mid-February. The globe of her eye is intact, but she has no sight due to the permanent damage to the optic nerve.
