Lexi is funny. She knows where the air conditioning comes out of and when she's hot, she lay next to the vent and let the cold air cool her face.
I'm working on a new design for the site. For a very early sneak preview, go

Dear Friend of the Animals,
Happy Fourth of July! This spring and summer have been a busy time for us at the shelter. Thousands of animals have already found new homes and are enjoying a wonderful second chance.
However, the animals need your help and they need it now. Many thousands more have been brought to the shelter either by their owners or by our animal control officers. We are full!!! You can help by spreading the word that the shelter has hundreds of wonderful animals available for adoption.
There are more than 100 cats and kittens waiting for new homes at the shelter. They come in every size, color and breed imaginable, they are all wonderful and they all want to go home with someone. We are also full of fantastic dogs and puppies. You or your family and friends can choose from every size, age and energy level.
Please tell everyone you know that this is a great time to adopt a new pet. If you have been thinking of adding one to your household or know someone who might benefit from the love a pet has to offer, please come in soon and adopt.
The shelter is getting too full. If we all work together, we can find a home for every one of these wonderful animals.
Please share this message with everyone you know.....
President & CEO
P.S. All adult cats are half price through July 15th.
Thought for today
If you can start the day without caffeine or pep pills,
If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you time,
If you can overlook when people take things out on you when through no fault
of yours, something goes wrong,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
If you can do all these things, then...
You're probably the family dog.
I think Joey's a better alarm clock than my real alarm clock. Joey has been waking me up just minutes before my alarm. (She must know how to read clocks!) Then she'll whine or claw at the basket. And, unlike my alarm clock, I can't tell her to snooze for 10 minutes. And since I don't want to wake Christi up, I usually get up.
