fun at the no kill this week

Started Sunday...I drove our Siberian 65 miles to meet another Siberian to hope they worked to take them both to a third place to meet a possible adoptee......luckily they all worked and we have two less dogs in shelters......This started at four in the morning and ended about eight thirty

So I could hurry back and help feed...Saturday and Sunday are my morning feeding days...I have weekends off so I feed in the mornings on weekends.We have weird pets.We have three raccoons...an armadillo we are trying to pawn off to a shelter in Arkansas so it can move it to texas or new mexico....a squirrel....weirdest story ever....basically a cat drug a baby squirrel into a house....now we have it......weirdest animal....it jumps at shit for no reason and will beg for nuts....if you are known to it and have brought him nuts be prepared...he is going through your pockets.....a mink family where the momma was run over and we rescued the babies...did I mention goats?....an older horse....she is the mamma to the whole place...she keeps order and when a 1,000 pound animal says stop it 10 pound animals tend to listen . A few snakes but they tend to go fast

We have fun at the shelter.We refuse no non toxic animal and that tends to lead to some interesting shit

Is it just venomous snakes? 'Cause I would think skunks, but you have a mink, and mink aren't much better...

Skunks are awesome little critters, by the by.

I wouldn't recommend them to any but the most experienced but a decented skunk raised from birth is ten times the pet of a cat
