Chelsea received a $25 gift certificate to Toga’s. The contest raised $300 for the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society. A big thank you to Toga’s for running this contest and helping the shelter.


Pet of the Week

Name: Slushie
Age: About 1 year
Breed: Domestic Medium Hair – black and white
Reason for being at shelter: Trapped

Description: Slushie is a very shy and timid semi-feral little kitty. She is apprehensive about human contact but will accept a soft rub only if you approach her calmly and treat her gently. If not, she will run away. Sometimes with soft caresses, she will eventually start to purr. Slushie needs more socialization before being comfortable as an indoor cat but there is hope. She is ear-tipped to designate being spayed and may be a barn cat candidate because of her limited social skills with people. Her sibling, Winger, definitely changed into a friendly and loving boy so there is potential for her, too. Slushie just needs more time and work from a devoted and patient owner. Will that be you?
