  Kioko


Kioko

Kioko is adoptable, though in the early stages of renal failure. Kioko has been our office cat for some years now. This sweet, gentle brown tabby girl originally had a long stay at Animal Care & Control as an unclaimed stray, and now a long stay with us as well. She’s a dedicated co-worker in the office, and is interested in all our comings and goings. Her personality has become very outgoing and friendly over time. Although we love her company, she deserves a family of her very own. She would want to be your only pet.

Valentine

in memory of Valentine

6/10/2016 - Valentine has passed away. Valentine spent many months with us before her adoption by one of our board members. She arrived as a puppy, with a blunt force trauma injury to a back leg, and a neurological issue which causes her to fold her front legs. She underwent surgery for her injury, but remained paraplegic. This sweet, gentle girl captured hearts wherever she went. Her neurological problems eventually became painful, and we helped her make her way across the Rainbow Bridge. We will miss her deeply. Portrait by David Jensen Photography.
