From socialization to relocation

The dogs are truly doing so well these days. Even Nosey, the shyest of them all, is out and walking around, visiting the volunteers and his dog friends, and getting brushed and petted. They have all come so far!

This means that things at Camp Reno are moving rapidly from "socialization" to "relocation." Our kennels are emptying as rescue groups arrive to bring our furry friends to their new living situations -- and one step closer to being adopted into loving, permanent homes.

Eddie is in the house!

You may remember that when the team originally went to the ranch in Gabbs on January 23, we were unable to catch one dog. Eddie was running loose and eluded us by staying far away while we were on site. He only came to take shelter in the out-buildings when he saw that we were long gone.

Valentines Day at Camp Reno!

Jack Cumbra, training technician for High Sierra Animal Rescue, arrived today to make Wilma and Melinda Sue his Valentines! Having just met Jack, they were both a little shy and unsure of him. Wilma warmed up with a few pieces of fresh chicken and also let him lead her on the leash for a short bit. Melinda Sue will be getting to know him and other staff and volunteers at High Sierra once she settles in at the shelter in Portola.

Moe and Joe transferred to Pet Network today!

This afternoon our very sweat Lab-Dalmatian mixes, Moe and Joe, were transferred to Pet Network of Incline Village, Nevada. When Susan Paul called me yesterday asking about Joe, I mentioned that he had a buddy Moe, who might be his dad. We had hoped they could go to rescue together. "Of course we’ll take both dogs!” Susan said.
