Rooster came to us on Monday when owner Shelly’s home was evacuated. A 14-year-old Catahoula, he was in our temporary shelter until Friday afternoon when Shelly informed us that they could return home. As soon as our staff opened up Rooster’s kennel, he jumped into Shelly’s arms and was so excited to see her.   Shelly was so grateful that she left us a card saying “We can’t thank you enough for taking such awesome care of our geriatric dog. It was such a relief for us to know he was safe, cool, and loved. A great big thank you!”   Thank you Shelly for raising Rooster to be such a wonderful, loving dog. It was our pleasure caring for him.Rooster & Shelly
