Ronnie’s New Family!

Jared and I are happy to say our family is complete when we adopted Ronnie. We go on walks on the Snake River as well as hanging out in the lakes as much as possible. Although Ronnie isn't much of a swimmer and/or a hiker we still manage to keep him on his paws :)....

AAC in the News!

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!

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...

Otter

Toby – Hurricane Katrina Rescue

Since it’s the 15th Anniversary of the AAC, I felt it’s time to give a shout out to our grumpy old man Toby who’ll be 15 in December 2019. When we adopted Toby (then Doby - Harry Potter names were really popular) he was a scrawny, approximately 1 year old, 15 pound...

Tillie – Might, Power & Battle

I was waiting all summer of 2017 for my perfect dog to come through the  Animal Adoption Center. I stopped in frequently; followed closely on social media, fostered a few and then finally found a puppy I set my heart on. He came in with a whole litter and had coloring...

Juno The Wonder Mutt

Four years ago we lost our 16 year old mixed breed dog to an aggressive form of cancer. My husband and I were devastated and I hated how quiet the house was. At the time our daughter was almost 2 and wanting to foster a dog was a bit worrisome because we needed a dog...
