I was hanging around Staples for a long time. A nice person befriended me by feeding me at three every day and then brought me to the shelter. I’m adjusting here at the shelter cautiously, but if I learned to trust the person who brought me in, I’ll learn again. Fortunately, dinner at the shelter is at four, not to far off from Staples dinner hour.

  • Chihuahua
Hi! My name’s Bailey and I’m a 2-year-old neutered male Chihuahua Mix. I came to Lucy Mackenzie with a bunch of my buddies from Mississippi earlier this summer. I was adopted soon after arriving, but things didn’t work out as well as we had hoped. The good news is that we all learned a lot about what I need in my new home. My continued obedience training is going to be very important. Some people think that smaller dogs can get away with things just because we’re small, but that’s not true. Boundaries and rules are really helpful and will go a long way towards my happiness. We also learned that young children confuse me quite a bit. I’ve met people of all ages here at the shelter, but in my home, it would be best if I lived with older, dog-savvy children only. I really like being around people, and will do pretty much anything to be near them. I’ve been known to climb up and over my kennel door here at the shelter, which is why I shouldn’t be trusted in a fenced in area left to my own devices. I will probably find a way out. The good news is that I love going for walks and playtime, especially with my favorite toy balls, so I promise you that we’ll always have a good time. If you’re looking for a new canine companion that will surely bring lots of love and joy to your life, stop in and meet me today!

My mom, Victoria, and I came in as strays so warmth and affection are wonderful but new to us. We are a little shy, just give us a chance! I'm still hiding out in a cave but I do like treats.

My best friend, Philipa, and I came in as strays with Hubert, Leela, and Keely. We were scared! Now we are hanging on perches trying to be friends with people. We are still a little shy. We love treats and toys.

I am listed as “confident, highly affectionate, very social, likes to be pet, does not like to be held.” I am here due to litter box issues, but I’ve been fine at the shelter. Dog free home recommended for me! I might do really well as the only pet in the home. Update 6/2/2019- I was adopted in May and then returned due to litter box issues. Again there seems to be no problem at the shelter, however, I am, and was, in the condo area, where each cat has his/her own sleeping area and litter box, food bowls and water. Please talk to the staff if you are interested in me. I'm a friendly guy. I just need to get this issue figured out.

09/3/18-Presently I have taken up residency in the mailbox. Special delivery, anyone? Updates to follow. Update 07/09/19-I was hanging around the Lebanon Carwash and I was trapped by a nice person who brought me to the shelter. It’s been quite a journey for me but I am beginning to see that people are fun…. and I can play! The other cat in my pictures is Lilith. She been a friend since I've arrived. This is from a volunteer and board member and is applicable to Irina and Lilith. "Do I choose the pet, or does the pet choose me? It’s not uncommon for knowledgeable pet people to support the perspective that the right  animal is going to find you interesting and will seek to be your friend.  And that may well be the ideal animal to bring home!  In that case, the animal finds you. But there is also a likelihood that there is a truly lovely animal who is very sad after recently losing their long time human and is sitting quietly in the corner.  Or perhaps there is another animal who is dying to walk over and meet you, but is intimidated in the presence of a crowd of other animals.  One of those might be the right pet for you too! But, the good news, we have animals who have made huge progress in trusting despite the noise and occasional chaos which is sometimes normal in a shelter.  We have animals who might have come from abusive situations and DESPITE that they are willing to try to trust again. What they need now is a chance to get to know their human in a new home where they can fall in love.   Our staff has insights into the background and current progress and needs of all the animals.  They know the older animals who are trying to understand this new reality after having one home for a decade or more.  Those animals want nothing more than to find a new friend to bond with..  They know the pets who have recovered or are recovering from injuries or medical issues.  These animals deserve to be rewarded for their tenacity and fighting their way back to health. Will the animal choose you?  Perhaps, but maybe only if you ask the right questions and look at some of the animals who will not come running to you right away, even though they want to."

I tried to find a home for myself and my kitten, Basil. I wasn’t successful but a nice person brought us in to the shelter. This place is going to help us find the right home! We are very friendly.

Visit us, Phillipa, Hubert, Leela, Hermes, Keely, with soft words, slow actions, and gentle toys. We want to be your friends. We are learning how with your help. I am curious, yet very cautious. I love treats but I want them from a distance. Put the treats close to the other cats on the cat tree and watch me dither before I jump to get my fair share.

Trapped with my friend, Mariana, we haven’t had much exposure to people. We’re learning that people can be great. Just give us a little time to develop confidence that we can handle all these new experiences.

I’m glad to be out of the cold but it is taking me some time to adjust to the other aspects of the shelter. Updates to follow. DOB: 8/27/16 app. Lucy Mac Arrival: 8/27/17 update 07/9/19 Like Irina I came in young without much contact with people. Like Irina, I’ve come a long way. If you are interested in younger adult cats and are cat savvy, how about giving us a chance. Irina is other cat in the pictures.

I'm a very friendly cat who has made a quick adjustment to being in the shelter. I'm practicing for you. Update: Actually, I've figured out I'm in a room with a lot of other cats who are also looking for a one and only. I'm having a tough time competing. Please Look Again (Written by a Lucy Mackenzie volunteer for many of our cats longing to be adopted.) Every day I get passed by Just because I’m very shy. I’d really like a forever home And a human I can call my own. Don’t be turned off if I seem aloof I’d be very different once under your roof. You might have to wait; it might take time But I promise you’ll find my love is fine!

Just give us a little time to develop confidence that we can handle all these new experiences. The second picture cut me off. I'm on the top perch. Visit the tree full of cats. Bring treats.

I was found in a condemned house. Staff notes: “moderately social, likes to be pet, tolerates being held on their own terms, very shy and gentle.” Being shy doesn’t mean that I don’t have a big heart!

I’m here because I was having difficulties with a toddler. I’m gorgeous and I love to play. I was a little scared and blue about being here. I wasn’t use to other cats either. But I’m blossoming. Bring a toy and let’s play!

I’m slowly learning my way around the shelter. I huddle by the plate glass so I can keep an eye on all the activity, but I’m still scared. I like soft words. I am HIV+. If you have questions about me please talk to the staff.

My kitten, Brooks, and I hung out in a person’s front yard for about a week. We were very scared. Here at the shelter we are learning there are good times to be had and with your soft words, and little treats we will soon be frisking about the room. I still not doing much frisking around the room but that what shelters are for- to give those in need help.
