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.

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.

When Callie Mae came into Col. Potter Cairn Rescue she was a pudgy, thirty pounder, had a UTI, seventeen bladder stones, and ulcers on her corneas. She had been owned by an older couple, and when the husband died, the wife could not stay in her home, so she had to give up Callie Mae.

May 29 is the 9th anniversary of KRL! It’s been an amazing 9 years that have seen a lot of changes. Thanks to all of you who read KRL and I hope you continue to do so for many more years to come. It has also been almost a year since the first episode of Mysteryrat’s Maze Podcast went up! The new year ahead of us will likely see many more changes, but we will always stay true to our core and you will always find mystery, theatre, animal rescue and more in KRL and KRL News and Reviews!

Cecilia has suffered a lot of loss lately. First, her beloved father-in-law died. Before she can adjust to his passing, her husband is killed in a work accident. She’s left in a house she didn’t pick, a town she didn’t choose, and with a dog she didn’t want. Ferris was always more Joey’s dog. A big, goofy, golden retriever, he’s uncoordinated, slobbery, and enthusiastic always. He’s not what she’d choose to be her family.
