Everyone has loved the subtle changes and we hope that will continue as more things unfold. Summer also brought some difficult days. The week of extreme heat in July took its toll. The staff added additional visits to the shelter in the evenings to make sure our pets were doing OK. The hottest day, before the air conditioning units started to arrive, it registered at 104 degrees inside the shelter. We were fortunate to have fabulous supporters and understanding community members step up to help us when we needed it. The staff and I and the CASA pets cannot thank you enough for helping us through that tough time. We are already starting to plan for the cold winter months to ensure all of the animals at CASA stay safe and happy while they wait for Forever Homes. For many, shelters are perceived as the last resort or the end of the road for a large number of pets. We see that differently here at our shelter. CASA has been a safe haven for so many pets who have come in looking their worst, feeling their worst, and fearing the worst. We have a new student volunteer named Steven. He really wanted to visit dogs when he first came to the shelter with his mom. Steven was immediately overcome by sad feelings for all the dogs. We asked him why he was so sad and he told us that he felt bad that they had to live here. This feeling is extremely common and completely understandable. We told Steven it was all right to show his feelings, but that he should be happy for the animals here. For many of them this is a new lease on life. Some come to us on death s door, with untreated medical issues, homeless - living on the beach, and some just hurting for love they have never received. For those animals, CASA is their new beginning, the beginning of the rest of their new life. We are proud that our shelter is able to play this role for so many wonderful pets. We will continue to improve and grow as the world around us does so we can ensure CASA will always remain a great place for the community and the Island s pets. Tegan Locker, Shelter Manager Tetra s Story Day after day animals sit in the kennels of animal shelters across the world. Some get a better chance than others. Kittens and puppies find homes fairly quickly. Everyone wants the rare and unusual looking pets. Small breeds of dogs find laps to lay on in no time. Then there are the black cats, the special needs pets, and the large common looking dogs who just sit there day in and day out. Each day they are passed by for the cute little one or the neat looking one. Unfortunately, the majority of people who visit shelters don't ever realize what they just passed by. That dog left behind may very well be the best one of the bunch, but too many people still judge a book by its cover or go in with one type on their mind. On October 30 th, 2008 a very young brindle Pit Bull came into CASA as a stray. With no owner in sight this 6 month old girl sat in the kennels and waited each day for her owners to come get her, but they never did. Days passed and she watched new dog friends enter the kennels. She had a routine of greeting new dogs through their kennel doors. Most dogs had owners who came to claim them, some stayed but were quickly adopted, and a few stayed for months. None would stay as long as she did though. When her stray hold was up the newly named "Tetra" became an official CASA dog and was added to the list of adoptable pets. Shortly after Tetra became a part of the CASA clan she was spayed and brought up-to-date on vaccines. She also came in with an ear infection that was treated and healed.

CASA was fortunate enough to have basic obedience/behavioral training donated to the shelter by a local kennel and Tetra was enrolled in it. It took only a few days of training and the staff already saw great improvements in Tetra. She learned all her basic commands and how to walk on a leash like a lady! She developed into an amazing dog and has become a staff favorite. CASA participated in Poochapalooza which takes place in Marysville every year. Tetra was able to go this time and spent the afternoon showing all of the people there just what a wonderful girl she is and also that Pit Bulls can make great family pets. She won everyone over with her impressive charm! Tetra truly is an awesome dog who would love to find her Forever Home sooner than later. She definitely knows she is loved here at CASA and is treated like family here, but she would prefer to have a human of her very own! If you are looking for a new companion, come into the shelter and meet Tetra, she d love for you to take her to the park next door for a walk or just throw her ball in the play yard and get to know her. You are bound to fall in love with her once you meet and she looks up at you with those gorgeous eyes. Thanks to Allison Zinnato, shelter staff member, for Tetra s Story.

3 CASA Activity Updates It was a busy spring and summer for the Friends of CASA. The Mother s Day Art Studio Tour Putting on the Dog and Bake Sale saw the community flocking to the sale to purchase baked goods and relax with BBQ hot dogs. At our CASA Rummage Sale in June people rented tables to sell their treasures while others came to find the wonderful items they could not live without. At the 3rd Annual Dog Wash held next to the shelter in August, 66 volunteers came together to wash and dry dogs. It was a busy day with 123 dogs bathed, 73 nails clipped, and 20 micro-chips implanted. The Dog Wash event and related mailing raised $4,300 for CASA. Special thanks go out to Dog Style Grooming, Camano Plaza Market, Re/Max Real Estate, Skagit Valley Farmers Supply and the Spare Room. CASA was represented at Twin City Idlers, Art By the Bay, the Poochapalooza in Marysville, the Stanwood/Camano Fair and the Car Collector s show. The goal was to not only spread the word about CASA, but also to introduce all of our wonderful dogs and cats. 4th Annual CASA BENEFIT AUCTION October 3, 2009 ~ 5:30pm - 9:30pm Auction to be held at: Camano Senior & Community Center 606 Arrowhead Road, Camano Island - SILENT and LIVE Auctions - GOURMET APPETIZERS, DESSERT & COFFEE - SELECTED WINES, BEERS & NON-ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE TICKETS: $25 in Advance ~ $35 at the Door Advance tickets may be purchased at the CASA shelter at the corner of East Camano Drive and Can Ku Drive, or call , or on-line at CASA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to finding S for homeless animals.

Featured location this period: Huntington s Corner Grocery Welcome to CASA In the last newsletter, we toured the shelter s front office, cat room and support rooms. Since then, we have rearranged the front office making it more open and inviting. Our wonderful volunteers came together and transformed our sad little garden into a large low maintenance one that makes you feel like you are at the beach. The previous article focused on the cat areas and, as promised, this part of the series will focus on how the dogs brought to Renovated and enlarged garden done by Friends of CASA. the shelter are loved and cared for until they are returned to their owners or find a Forever Home. In some cases dogs may be at the shelter for several months or longer. CASA s origins are rooted in the care of dogs. CASA, the Camano Animal Shelter Association, was formed in 1998 to oversee the operation of an animal shelter that would house dogs impounded on Camano Island. Island County s laws require that we provide a place to temporarily care for all dogs impounded on Camano Island. Island County provides the building, water, electricity and approximately $30,000 for running the shelter. Because CASA has made the commitment to admit and care for other types of dogs than just View of shelter from south east direction. those that are impounded, as well as take in cats, the shelter s expenses far exceed the allowance provided by Island County. As those familiar with CASA know, the Friends of CASA put in much effort to raise additional funds needed to run the shelter. Many generous financial donations help out as well. The dog area of the shelter consists of the Kennel Area, Outdoor Runs and a Play Yard. Kennel Area - The kennel area, located to the left of the front office contains twenty (20) kennels. Eleven (11) of the kennels have doors that open onto private outdoor runs dedicated to that kennel s resident dog. Inside each kennel, there is a Kuranda (brand name) bed. A Kuranda bed looks like a canvas cot with 4 short legs that allows a dog to sleep comfortably above the floor. Of course, each kennel also contains food, water and toys. There is an information sheet attached to the door of each occupied kennel that contains the dog s Petfinder information, a small erasable board showing how many days the dog has been at CASA, a packet of Leo smiling with Cherie, a shelter staff member. information updated by staff and dog walkers and very importantly, the dog s leash. Dogs are walked nearby in the park next door or up Can Ku Road by a dedicated group of volunteer dog walkers. A sign in the kennel area indicates which dogs may be walked by volunteers. Impounded or stray dogs are brought to the shelter and stay there until they are retrieved by their owners. If there is no identification on a dog and no way for shelter workers to contact an owner, the dog becomes a ward of CASA if it is not picked up within the pre-defined waiting period. If CASA staff has identified a dog s owner but are not able to contact them, the dog is put on a 14-day hold to allow a recognized owner a little more time to retrieve their pet. All new dogs reside in kennels located at the back of the kennel area and are not available for public viewing or walking until they have undergone a temperament test and passed it. White board used in kennel area for information. (continued on page 5 - Welcome to CASA)
5 5 (continued from page 4 - Welcome to CASA) Besides taking in impounded and stray dogs, CASA also accepts owner surrendered dogs. However, according to its county contract CASA must assure that there is always space available for impounded dogs. Since kennels with lots of large dogs are sometimes intimidating for smaller dogs, small dogs are often cared for in foster homes. They usually spend evenings at their foster home but days are spent at the shelter so they can be seen for possible adoption. Adoptable dogs remain at CASA until they find their Forever Home. Since these dogs often need medical attention, they are taken to the veterinarian and the staff assures that they receive the required assistance. This may mean providing a special diet or medication. All adopted dogs are spayed or neutered before leaving CASA. Outdoor Area As mentioned earlier, the 11 kennels with outdoor runs are all next to each other so when they are out in their runs the dogs can see each other. From these outdoor areas the dogs enjoy observing what s going on. If something s happening, one dog will start barking and will soon be joined by a chorus of barks. Our feature dog Tetra with Oluf, one of our volunteer dogwalkers. Here is the play yard currently occupied by 2 buddies. It extends beyond the building on the left with lots more room that can t be seen. Play Yard We are fortunate that the shelter has a play yard that surrounds the outdoor kennels and comes right up to the front office and cat rooms. This is a favorite spot for most of the dogs. The staff rotates them to be sure they each spend time in the play yard and, if possible, the workers spend time with individual dogs to interact and play with them. Whenever possible there are yard buddies, i.e., placed in the yard at the same time. The staff can watch the dogs from the front office and the cats peek out their windows at the dogs. Prospective adopters have the opportunity to meet the dogs in the play yard. This gives them the opportunity to spend time with the dog in a safe, relaxed atmosphere. Although a visit to see the dogs may be noisy, we know our dogs are happy. Thanks to the care and concern given to the dogs by the volunteers and staff we are confident that Kennels with outdoor runs attached work very well for the the dogs waiting for their Forever Home know shelter dogs as can be seen in this photo. how much they are loved.

6 6 Happy Tails Reuben s Happy Tail A 5-year-old red heeler named Rusty came to CASA in February, 2009 and was adopted in April. Rusty s story illustrates the power of in placing animals and how a dog s life can be changed. Here is what Rusty s new owners had to say: We lost our old blue heeler from old age and were looking for another heeler-type dog to take in to our remote wilderness home in the Yukon, Canada. We wanted to try getting an adult rather than a new pup for two reasons: the main one being we've always had a dog around camp to bark at bears, etc. and the other reason was I liked the idea of rescuing one from the seemingly endless lists of poor dogs looking for homes. While we were on holiday in Australia, we started looking at the websites. Rusty was on our "short list" for shelters to call when we got back to Canada. He had such a nice face. So after a couple of phone calls we drove down to Camano Island. After taking Rusty for a little walk he reminded us a lot of our two-dogs-ago yellow heeler that we'd had for 12 years. We changed his name to Reuben... Rusty s picture as seen on and the rest is history. He had a long journey with us before we actually got home. So we all got well acquainted while travelling north. He had a vet visit, a car ride, a stay in two strange houses, a ride on a jet, more car rides, a hotel stay, a ride on the ferry, another car ride (!), and then a small plane ride (which he hated). Then finally we got to our home in the Yukon - in lots of snow. As it gradually became Spring and the snow melted, Reuben s territory widened. He has grown to love it and he is free and happy here. He's chased a bear out of camp, warded off several wolves, herded the bulldozer, barked idiotically at the ravens who teased him, and kept me company and entertained with his antics all summer long. He has a ball that he pushes around with his nose and paws so he entertains himself as well! Reuben s arrival in Alaska still a way to go before they get all the way home to the Yukon in Canada. As I write this Reuben is sprawled out on his mat in the kitchen. He's been kept busy the past few days keeping the whiskey jacks (birds) off his new moose bone. They won! Kate and Ian Warrick Harley s Happy Tail Harley, a little pug formerly named Hairy Potter, was adopted in April, 2009 and is doing in one word: F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!!! Harley has been a wonderful addition to my family and I am so very happy to have found him. He has settled in very nicely and has become quite the pampered pup - thanks to my girlfriend. His day usually consists of a morning walk before work, then off to day care to play with his friends during the work day. The doggy day care has a web cam so my girlfriend and I are constantly checking in on him, and we often will call or each other saying Did you see what Harley just did? In the evenings we usually go for another walk (depending on the weather). Then it s play time and after that off to bed. He has really flourished with all the one on one attention he gets and we just couldn t be more in love with the little guy! My girlfriend has gone a little crazy with all the coats and sweaters she wants Harley to wear. Harley just rolls his eyes and looks at me like.. Dad, help me out here!. Thank you for everything! Harley has completed my family and I couldn t be happier. Michael Pamintuan Visit or to view and read about all of our adoptable animals. Have you adopted from CASA?

8 8 Newsletter of CASA PO Box 1726 See Tetra s Story! Stanwood, WA PRESORTED STANDARD U.S. POSTAGE PAID STANWOOD, WA PERMIT # 285 This is Rosie! Rosie is an 8-year old survivor who was placed in a very bad situation. She was declawed as a young cat. Recently, in the last year, her owner asked a friend to watch Rosie temporarily but never came back for her. Unfortunately the friend kept Rosie outside for the last 5 months and, of course, she could not defend herself. When she was brought to CASA she was covered with scabs and sores caused by attacks from other outside animals. She s on the mend now but needs a new home with somebody who will give her the understanding and love she deserves. Can you come see her and help her out? CASA ANIMALS CURRENTLY IN NEED OF S Gentry - This beautiful 4 year old neutered male cat was found abandoned in an unoccupied house with his sister. They were trapped there for over a month without food or water before being discovered and brought to CASA. Gentry is a friendly, mellow fellow who enjoys sunning himself on a warm window sill. Come and visit him - he will love to spend time with you. THIS IS KATIE! This tiny, older female shih tzu was found hobbling down the middle of a road and brought to CASA by a caring person. She was obviously neglected and in very bad condition. Her hair was long and matted, her nails so long some pierced her feet. Most likely she was discarded by a callous backyard breeder. (Yes, they exist even on Camano Island.) She was not spayed and had obviously produced lots of puppies.. CASA staff cleaned her up, gave her needed medical treatment, love and caring. They named her Katie. She now needs a loving home with people who will give her the care she deserves and never had. Through it all Katie has responded warmly to all who have shown her care, love and affection. Please help Katie with a donation or a new home. - KITTENS - KITTENS - KITTENS It seems late in the year for kittens but we have lots of them right now! If you have been thinking about getting a kitten, stop by and see them running around playing and learning what being a cat is all about. FiFi - Fifi came to CASA as a stray mother with 4 kittens. She was a very good mother. Now that her babies are ready for homes of their own Fifi needs to find somebody for herself. She is very sweet and affectionate with people. She loves to be held and petted. Come see her! Maybe you are her special one!
