1.13.14: Big donation
by Deanna and Karen in honor of Russ.
Angel, A hurt, emaciated puppy wants nothing but love.
Fortunately, we have a lot of that at RVHS! Angel was found in
the Jerome Prairie area. She had been around for a couple of
weeks. We're not going to show you what this poor puppy's feet
looked like - our vet said that it looked like she had been dragged.
Angel has some fractures and a bone infection. We're keeping
a close watch on her and giving her lots of attention. To say
she is "sweet" is a complete understatement.

Big thanks from all the animals at RVHS. Paws Up!
We are so proud to announce that
one of the incredible bears from The
Bear Hotel is now on display at Rogue Valley Humane Society!
Come visit us see this masterpiece for yourself. Bring a camera
as it's a great photo op for children and adults alike. "Some
Bear" will be on display until it may be moved to join the
other bears downtown next year, and then it will return.
Evergreen Bank graciously sent the "bear ambassador"
to RVHS and we thank them so much. It is an honor to have it
at the facility! "Some Bear" was designed by E.B. Effects
& Design Co. and the inspiration for the design came from
E.B. White's literary classic "Charlotte's Web".
Pictured from left to right is the RVHS "greeter" Jeffries,
along with D'laina Reams, Tanya Allen and Margaret Varner (RVHS
Manager) proudly posing with "Some Bear".
RVHS is open to the public Monday thru Saturday from noon til
4 pm. RVHS will be closed to the public on Labor Day and reopen
Tuesday. RVHS has many dogs, puppies, cats and kittens to meet
too - come meet the new love of your life!

Koda, a deaf and blind 3 month
old Australian Shepherd, arrived at the Rogue Valley Humane Society
on 5/17. He was brought in by a young man who became alarmed
when a friend who owned the puppy said that he was going to leave
him in the forest because he couldn't take care of him. This
good Samaritan took the puppy home but his parents realized that
Koda needed more care than they could give him so they brought
him into RVHS where he received his wellness check, vaccinations,
flea treatment, worming and neutering. Not many people know how
to deal with deaf and blind dogs.
March we had a blind stray black lab, Frankie, whose owners,
even after being contacted, didn't want him back. We were so
fortunate to hear from Cristene and Duane Justus of the Double J Dog Ranch in Post Falls, Idaho.
They have a beautiful sanctuary for deaf and blind dogs and they
wanted Frankie! They knew about Pilots N Paws and set up the details for
flying Frankie out to Idaho. So when Koda arrived, naturally
we thought of them and to our delight, Koda was wanted and again,
Pilots N Paws stepped in to fly him to his new home.
6.02.13: On Sunday, June 2nd,
staff, volunteers and board members waited at the airport for
Koda's ride. We played with Koda, took pictures and felt happy
that he would now have the best care possible. When pilot Pat
landed he immediately went to Koda and cuddled him, letting him
know that he had a new friend. After more photos, Koda was placed
in his carrier with his toys on the little plane and then they
were off the ground and on their way.
Thank you, Double J Dog Ranch
Inc. and Pilots N Paws for caring so deeply about animals in
need. You have a very fine organization of committed people helping
with critical transportation that would not otherwise happen
for the most forsaken animals in our care.
to the photo above, Cristene Justus who is the Head Dog Herder
at the Double J Dog Ranch Inc. said, "Just look at all of
those beautiful, smiling faces! Duane and I wanted to drop a
quick note and thank each and every one of you for all you do
for the animals in your care. Margaret and staff have demonstrated
yet again what a well run facility you have. We applaud the extremely
high value placed on the care and placement of the pets passing
through RVHS on their journey to their own home."
Thanks Koda for sharing a part of your life with us at Rogue
Valley Humane Society you are indeed special. Thank You PNP and
Double J Dog Ranch! RVHS sends Paws Up!
A huge thanks to the Baldini
family who held and sponsored our 2013 Spaghetti Dinner . The
food was great, the staff friendly, and it raised over $2,000
for our animals. If you want great pizza this is the place. Baldini's in Merlin.
