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.
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.

As the director of communications at UAN, I'm always looking for a good story. Something that will let you, our supporters, know how much we care about the animals and how hard we work to bring them out of crisis situations.
When EARS Southern California State Coordinator Norma Rodriguez arrived at “Camp Reno” a few days ago she noticed that Moe, a male Dalmatian and Pointer mix, was not eating much. We explained that he had not been feeling well and that Dr. Landon of the Nevada Humane Society had given him a prescription of antibiotics for a possible infection. He was perking up some, but still not eating very much.
