Lumpy Love

Lumpy Love

Early summer of last year I was casually looking at Petfinder (mostly for dogs) and favorited Lumpy because her pic + name made her seem so pitiful. In January, thanks to my neighbor, I found out Lumpy was STILL at the shelter. My heart broke a little bit and even...

We have adopted two dogs and four cats from AAC over the years. Six critters that have been such important parts of our lives! We know for sure that adopted animals give back many times the love they receive. Please think adoption!

Dakota, Our Joy in Giving

Dakota, Our Joy in Giving

The story we've heard about Dakota is that she was born under a deck in the dead of winter. When we watch her frolic in the snow, we know why she feels right at home burrowing in a snow bank, even though she seems equally as comfortable in the middle of our bed every...

Scooby Wins The Lottery

Scooby Wins The Lottery

My childhood nickname was Scoob. In the spring of 2014 my husband David and I bought what we dubbed “The Scooby Van”, the perfect road-trip vehicle. Then in mid-March of that year we lost Travis, our 17-year-old border collie, the love of our lives. But by August, our...

Tate’s Weight Loss Journey

Tate’s Weight Loss Journey

Hi.  My name is Tate, but most of you probably know me by my former name, Ms. Potato. You could say that I am a girl with a bit of a past as I entered "the system" after being seized during a SWAT raid on my house in Idaho.  I was taken to the Idaho Falls shelter...

5 Years With Monroe!

5 Years With Monroe!

I am celebrating 5 years with my pup Monroe! I went to the AAC on a whim (after a long time wanting a dog of my own) where one of AAC's staff asked what I was looking for in a dog. I had said a medium sized dog with medium sized energy for all of Jackson's adventures...
