Pet of the Week

Re-introducing Nellie, a sweet senior Border Collie mix who is ready to be given another chance.  Her story is quite unique, and one many of you will remember. Wilbur, Nellie’s pack mate, was adopted in May because many of you shared his story, and now it’s time to bring Nellie good fortune as well.  Her Heart of the Valley story began in February of 2013 when Nellie and her pack mates were brought to Heart of the Valley under unique circumstances after their owner passed away and the Humane Society of the United States was granted ownership.   Heart of the Valley was asked to help and since we had a low resident dog population at the time we were happy to transfer in these dogs. Nellie was in our care last year for six months until she was adopted, but unfortunately she was recently surrendered to Heart of the Valley because of family issues.  Nellie would love to find a patient owner who will allow her time to adjust to a new home and who will provide her with plenty of comfortable napping spots around the home and leash walks around the neighborhood.  Nellie will show her human how loyal she is and she wouldn’t mind the company of a respectful dog or older children.  Stop on out to Heart of the Valley today to meet Nellie and chat with our adoption counselors to hear more of her story. Dog adoption hours are from 11:30 am-5 pm daily at 1549 E. Cameron Bridge Rd.
