Life at an animal shelter can be rough, and not just for the tenants. The people who care for them often witness the aftermath of unfathomable human cruelty. But there are many shining moments to shelter life, one of the most rewarding being watching a pet go to their forever home. For this issue’s Pupdate, we’re going to catch up with some previous Elm-featured pet stars from the Animal Care Shelter for Kent County.

A few months back, we ran an article on Cocoa, the Cane Corso mix who was all smiles. The day after that issue was released, the brindled love bug was adopted by a Pennsylvania resident who saw her through social media. Best wishes, Cocoa.

A dynamic duo came over the pages of The Elm not long after: Chilly and Angel Face, a brother-sister pair of cats. Their affectionate attitudes and beautiful coats made them both a catch. Chilly was adopted, but Angel Face is still dreaming of her forever home.

You may remember Socks, the collie mix who escaped a neglectful situation and went on walkabout before being retrieved and brought to the ACSKC. This sweet boy is waiting for his family to hone in on him. Socks is shy but warms up quickly, and loves gentle walks and warm cuddles. He’ll make a wonderful housemate once he deciphers the baffling species that is the domestic sofa.

Petey and Callie, the senior cats who serve as king and queen of the ACSKC’s Executive Director’s office, are standing by for their permanent royal court to arrive. These playful elders would thrive in a quiet home or office. Be warned: they love to cuddle, so you might not get much done if you take them to work.

Quinn the bulldog mix is still waiting for her people. After being overbred for the first four years of her life, this love-sponge mama is so excited for a place where her effervescent affection will be forever returned.

The animals in this article who have not been adopted are beloved at the ACSKC, but nothing beats a loving home. If you are interested in adopting, you can fill out an adoption application online or in person at the Animal Care Shelter of Kent County at 10720 Augustine Herman Highway, Chestertown, MD, or call at 410-778-3648.
