Kola is a two year old female Pit Bull Terrier mix. Kola is one happy dog! She gets along great with dogs and people alike.

She loves to play, whether it is chasing a ball for a human, romping with another dog or just entertaining herself by throwing her toys in the air!

Kola would make a great companion for someone who likes to get out and enjoy our beautiful area. She likes going for hikes, splashing in the water or just sitting quietly and being petted.



Kola has a lot of love to share; come by and meet her and see for yourself! Like all the available animals at the shelter, Kola is fixed, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. Her ID number is A063351.

Mona is a brown tabby domestic shorthair. She is one year, eight months old. She has been spayed. She arrived at the shelter on June 27.

Shelter staff said the following about her. “Mona loves to be held. She is playful, and she is quick to return affection the moment you have stopped spoiling her. She is perky, fun and ready to be part of your life.” Her ID number is A063858.

For more information about Kola or Mona, call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Animal Shelter at (707) 840-9132.

Companion Animal Foundation has been busy with bottle baby kittens.

This year, kitty season started late and so is anticipated to go on later as well.

That is why your help is needed.

Currently, there are at least six bottle baby kittens in the care of Companion Animal Foundation and fosters.

A mother cat and eight kittens just made their way to CAF as well.

Thankfully, these eight kittens have their mother and so will only need minimal (if any) bottle feeding.

Eight, count 'em, eight kittens.

For this family of nine, CAF wants to find an active foster home with children ages ten and over.

CAF would love to have fosters on hand to help with the overflow of kittens and bottle babies who are not yet ready to be in the cat room.

To become a foster, just fill out a simple foster application so that CAF knows specifically what you are interested in doing. This application is available online at or can be picked up at 88 Sunny Brae Center.

For more information on fostering, please call (707)826-PETS(7387). Companion Animals is generously sponsored by Humboldt Pet Supply.
