Analise (Lucy) and her sister Camille (Missy) were two little puppies when they had arrived at the Denham Springs Animal Shelter on August 1, 2016. They were up for adoption when something terrible happened. On August 12th, the Denham Springs Animal Shelter, a no-kill shelter, was engulfed in quickly rising flood waters. The dedicated staff and volunteers fought to save as many animals as possible from the flood waters, eventually having to unlatch the kennel doors and let the dogs swim out and climb onto the roof, while they scrambled to get the cats out in carriers. Approximately 60 dogs and 90 cats were rescued and brought to a strip of dry land, where they were rounded up, put into abandonded houses, and fed by neighbors for a few days until they were able to be evacuated. Analise and Camille were rescued with 24 other dogs and brought to ARNO where they put them in foster homes. ARNO is looking for wonderful homes for these beautiful animals while the Denham Springs shelter works on rebuilding their facilities.
Their foster mom reports that Analise and Camille are good with her two toddlers. These sweet puppy sisters are best friends and spend most of their time together playing with each other and then sleeping together usually piled on top of one another. She says that they keep each other busy making them easy to take care of. They love people and children. The girls sleep in their crate together at night and tell her when they want to go out to potty. They are between 3 and 4 months old and have had two rounds of puppy shots. If you want to give these little girls the great home that they deserve, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The adoption fee is $200 and includes spay, 3 rounds of puppy shots and a chip, but if you decide to keep the sisters together there is a special fee of $300 for both.
NOTE: Analise and Camille were in the shelter before the flood and were not owned dogs, so they are available immediately!
