Andy Carpenter is a defense attorney who really doesn’t like to take cases, investigate, and go to court. Luckily, he has enough money that he doesn’t have to. When his beloved Golden Retriever, Tara, is at the vet’s office and the vet asks about a legal problem, that changes everything.

Kritter Kids was the original name of the company when I began it in August of 2005, after I retired from the military. I was a disabled veteran and my life was about to change. At the end of August, a friend handed me two handicapped raccoons. That is how it started.

Having a python wrapped around her neck is not an entirely unusual experience for Belinda Blake. It wasn’t what she planned on wearing for a first-time meeting with her landlord Stone Carrington the fifth, but as a Manhattan exotic pet-sitter she’s learned to expect the unexpected. Belinda is attempting to build up a clientele closer to her new home in Greenwich, Connecticut, but unfortunately the carriage house is looking far less appealing after the discovery of a body in the backyard flowerbed.

A beautiful wheaten Scottie, Bailee, is a big boy at about thirty pounds. He has had a rough time, but has a lot of love and companionship to give to the right forever home. His original owner was an older man who had an accident and could no longer take care of Bailee. Instead of calling Scottie Rescue, Bailee was sent to a North Carolina shelter. He became stressed at losing his home and being dragged off by a stranger, so he bit the animal control officer.

Kev considers Bud to be his dog. Now Melanie has the idea to start a book club. What could go wrong?

Pringle is a male two-year-old Siberian husky available for adoption at our Dog Adoption Center. Pringle first arrived at Valley Animal Center as a puppy in May of 2017 from animal control services. He was quickly adopted within days of being at our shelter. Unfortunately, a month later Pringle was brought back to us. He was adopted out yet again at the end of June 2017, and we had hoped this was his forever home.

Encino came to Col. Potter Cairn Terrier Rescue from a hoarding situation where he was in a yard with a total of ninety dogs. Terrified of being crated, he was not easy to rescue. However, surprisingly given the hoarding conditions, he is not aggressive; no growling or barking.

So far this year, we’ve rescued almost 750 cats and kittens, and we’ve still got half the year to go. Summer is when The Cat House on the Kings is overrun with rescued kittens, and staff are overwhelmed by phone calls asking us to take in more. It’s also the time of year when, because of graduations, vacations and other distractions, giving tends to fall off, leaving The Cat House with more need and fewer resources.

This is an incredibly frenzied time of the year for those of us involved in freelance rescue. That is because it is full-blown kitten season, and it’s really bad this year. I spend a good portion of my day answering emails, texts, and phone calls as well as responding to Facebook tags. The shelter is hovering at around 70 kittens and a handful of adults, mainly mothers of kittens.

Donna is a nine-year-old purebred Scottie who has lived in the same home with her daughter, Bunny, all her life. Bunny is eight-years-old and a mix of Scottie and Affenpinscher with rather remarkable ears. Both are a bit overweight and had not been vetted since 2011.
