Pearl - Adopted from Dessin this summer and now we can’t imagine life without her
My name is Nicholas, I was adopted from Dessin at Christmas 2013.
Named after the great St. Nick himself!
Douglas ❤️. Rescued with 40+ other beagles - he's 5 now - he's my baby ❤️
Adopted Brandy, our dog and Bud or cat from the Dessin. Love them both so much!!
This is tobey!! We adopted him about 2 years ago. He is such a cuddler and is such a baby. I can not imagine our life without him.
this is our old lady Sheeba, who we adopted November 11, 2011. she was 11 years old when we brought her home, half bald from stress, underweight, and terrified of everything. for the first few months we thought she simply didn't know how to bark, because we never heard a peep out of her. today shes a spry 17 year old spoiled brat, and we love her despite it :P she barks at us when she want things, snores like a bear, and has more energy than we do most days. her favorite things are naps and food, although its a toss up between which takes the top spot. im forever thankful to have brought her home and into our family...even when she eats the kitchen towels.
Jynx (formerly Karate) under the watchful eye of Schmoopie the wonder dog 😁
This is Raven. We adopted her about a 1 1/2 years ago. She is the light of our life❤
This is Baxter, I adopted him in the Spring of 2012 and has been my little spoiled rockstar....along with his puggle sister Lily. He (I think) was the runt of his 7 brother litter, but he has a HUGE personality and plenty of energy. He is a little gentleman sir with his coat as he is always dressed in his brindle tuxedo, he chases squirrels and loves to play outside! Thank you everyone at Dessin who made this one happy family!
I adopted Rosie (right) in February 2009 when she was 4 and 35 lbs overweight due to what she had been fed by her previous owner who abandoned her in a foreclosed house. She was the first dog I saw at Dessin and it was love at first sight. Rocky (left) joined us that September when he was 2 and 25 lbs underweight because he had been a long-term stray. All these years later he is still OCBFD - Obsessive Compulsive Ball Fetch Dog, and Rosie is the watch dog. I don't know what I'd do without them. 💕
We adoped Gypsy who is now called Annabelle on October 16, 2015. She is definitely loved and my childrens cat!!! I would adopt from Dessin again in a heart beat....
Tuck soon after we adopted him from Dessin in 2008 and how he looks today. I remember he had just been moved into the adult cat room. When we walked in he immediately rubbed against the cage door and in the process he stepped on his food bowl and it spilled all over. He's still spilling his bowls but now it's mostly the water bowl.
This is Willow we adopted her in 2010! Her name at the time was Ginger but we decided to change it!! She is an amazing escape artist and loves children especially her best friend Skout !
So here are my 2 Dessin animals, Raven & Zoey. They are both about 1 1/2 years old and get along famously. Raven is a purebred Newfoundland so you just never know what you will find at an animal shelter.
September I came into Dessin with my 4 yr old granddaughter. As we entered the kitty rooms I told her lets stand still and see who chooses us. Well this most beautiful long hair calico came to us and I was instantly smitten with her. I have renamed her Callie and she is the most wonderful cat I have ever had. She is smart. Beautiful, playful and the best companion. Thank you Dessin.
Here's Koo Koo. Adopted in 2013 at 9 months old. He actually picked me and followed me around, so brought him home. He likes to run around and chase his tail.
Oscar. Picked up as a stray, every single rib completely visible. We arrived on his intake day, about 15ish years ago, and fell in love instantly. As skinny as he was, he was the most gentle dog in the world. No aggression with food, toys, loved every animal and human he met. Oscar passed about a year and a half ago. But he was an amazing and loving boy (and a little chunky, we overcompensated, lol)
Cody was adopted from Dessin Animal Shelter 11yrs ago. He climbed over all of his brothers and sisters to bark at me. Right then I knew he was the one. He was a very smart and loving boy. He loved his walks (and I loved walking with him)and swimming in the river. He was my bestest bud and missed by many. Several months ago he crossed the rainbow bridge due to complications from diabetes. Thank you Dessin for being there. If not I'd miss loving this handsome boy. On his birthday Christmas Eve he'd be 11.
This is Rexie, when we adopted him in March he had bad skin allergies and barely any hair on his body. Thanks to diet changes and special daily baths with meds he now has hair and is a very great and special addition to our family.
Adopted Emmett as a puppy from Dessin. He will be 7 years old December 9 . Hes so much fun and so spoiled. We all love him and his quirky ways.
Aragon...he lived almost 13 years❤❤ he was born December 10th...amazing dog...miss him more and more each day....the top picture is his last day with us..the kids saying goodbye💔😢💔😢
Our girl Kiera...Adopted her at 7 mos. Old.Her owner passed away. She's a Jack Russell, now she's 4 yrs.old.We love her to pieces!!!Adopt,don't shop😊
Smokey was a stray. He just loves to be in your lap and get petted. Has all t h e love to give. Just happy t o be petted and tolerates the kittens that try to play with his tail and feet.
This is William! We adopted him about 7 years ago and he will be 8 year old in March. He loves to sunbathe on the patio, go for long walks, and hates bath time! We are so blessed to have this bundle of joy in our home ❤️
This is Annabelle, formerly known as Mariana. She picked me 2 years ago today (12/7/17) when I went to Dessin looking for a cat with whom I could bond. She was among the cats who had been there the longest. She is very bright and enjoys cuddling, playing with her toys, napping in her bed, and inspecting the Christmas tree.
Jack. Adopted March 2014 when he was 4 years old. He’s my shadow, a love bug and is spoiled endlessly. Usually sleeps under the covers and not on them. ❤️
This is Lucy, aka Lu Lu, adopted five and a half years ago. She was the first cat my husband and I adopted after getting married--he had never had a cat before in his life. He let me adopt Lucy with the promise that the man cave would be off-limits. The first night we had her, he was in the man cave with the door closed and heard a quiet scratching at the door. It was Lu Lu. He let her in--it was just supposed to be one time--and now the two of them are best buds. He is her favorite person in the whole world, and I have her to thank for turning him into a cat person!
These are our "babies," Peanut and Bailey (they're quite full grown now!). They are a sister and brother, adopted about a year and a half ago. They love each other a ton and get along well with their two older "sisters." Peanut's favorite thing in the world is food. She will try to steal the dinner off your plate. Bailey loves to play and cuddle with his humans. They are very good mousers (I wish I didn't have to find that out). They have another brother and sister, Nemo and Dory, who were adopted out to wonderful families. I wonder if they grew up to be as big as these two 🙂
Our sweet Nala, adopted her this past summer. She was brought in as a stray estimated to be a year old. She now rules her home ❤
Piper and Delilah both adopted from Dessin! They both love to play with our two horses and do anything outside- swimming, hiking, etc.! Mostly they just like to play and cuddle with one another and with our cat, Monkey who was also adopted from Dessin.
Our sweet Cosmo. We adopted him in December of 2003. He just turned 14! ❤️
Hayley Petsche and I love our Peanut. ❤️ He'll be 7 in February
Church, adopted August 2015 as an 8 week old kitten.
Cleo adopted at 8 years of age. Working hard on basic commands and routing out varmints when she is not lounging in the living room. Many thanks to Nina at Happy Paws for the support.
Otis the Puggle. We adopted him about 2 &1/2 Years ago. We love Otis even though he still acts like a puppy.
Livvy adopted as Olivia she is now three years old and such an adorable character
