Miri Meadow, called Mayzee by her foster mom Sheron, is about twelve years old and is a petite girl at about ten pounds.
Sherron says Mayzee is very sweet. She follows Sherron everywhere, always looking up at her. Although Col. Potter Rescue doesn’t know a lot about her background, Sherron guesses she was picked up on the street either having gotten lost or discarded by previous owners. She is afraid of loud noises and suffers from separation anxiety.

Gerard is a mixed breed Col. Potter rescue that his foster mom, Eilene, thinks is part terrier and part Golden Retriever. But, she says he’s too silly to be a Gerard, so Eilene calls him Ratty.
Ratty loves attention. He is very sweet, has no problem with other dogs, and enjoys greeting visitors.

Wilfred is a five-year-old Terrier mix that came to Valley Animal Center in 2016. Wilfred was adopted, but unfortunately was returned to the center two years later because the owner was moving into a senior-living facility. Wilfred is shy and a bit timid around new people and dogs. This Terrier mix loves toys and is a great lap dog once he gets acclimated to his surroundings.

Chester is a sweet, seven-year-old male Terrier mix. He was taken in by Fresno Humane as a stray earlier this year, and didn’t come to Valley Animal Center until February. He adores the staff, but is ready to go to his forever home.
Our staff describes Chester as being very shy and calm. Since he is a bit older, he likes to spend most of his time lying in his comfy bed without much interference.

Valley Animal Center: Saving Sammy

IN THE October 8 ISSUE

Sammy, our sweet two-year-old Terrier/Pit Bull mix, was rescued from the CCSPCA seven months ago. The reason Sammy has been at our shelter for so long without being adopted, is that his ears chronically bleed due to a very bad ear crop. Sammy is in constant need of medical attention because of his ear issues, and that has played an adverse role in getting him adopted. This would not have been a problem, had he not gotten his ears cropped n the first place.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Chaz Finds A Home

IN THE December 19 ISSUE

FROM THE 2015 Articles,
andAnimal Rescue Adventures

by Becky Holly

The holiday season is all about connections—connections with family, friends and community. Earlier this year a beautiful, young, large male entered our lives at Fresno Bully Rescue. We named him Cass (now Chaz). At about one year old, he had puppy energy in spades and weighed approximately 85 pounds. Our wonderful volunteer, Jennifer Andrew, chose Chaz and worked with him to teach him valuable skills. Chaz quickly blossomed and showed just how much love he had to give his future forever family.
