Good News! The August yard sale was a huge success raising nearly $900 for the animals at HAL. Thanks for everyone who donated their stuff! We actually still have enough items left over to have an additional sale, so if anyone knows of a large sale where we could grab table space—please let us know!

Carmen is a striking charcoal tabby who was rescued with her buddy Maddie (who has been adopted) when their time had run out at a local shelter back in Dec 2002. In the company of people since she was very young, she is outgoing, playful, and extremely affectionate. She greets every visitor as if they were an old friend. She gets along well with other cats and seems to have their respect. Carmen was adopted in 2005, but then returned in 2009 due to "lifestyle changes". Though we expected her to have a traumatic transition, she actually seemed grateful for the rescue. She has one of the most amazing attitudes we've ever seen--she is brave, loving, and extremely adaptable. She would truly make a wonderful addition to any family.
January is a BIG girl who loves to be loved. She was rescued from a neighboring county after suffering from neglect. Like most large-breed dogs, she is still maturing, but she takes direction well and settles down very easily for attention. She is absolutely gorgeous and adores people. She does well with other male dogs--her tolerance of female dogs will need to be determined on a case-by-case basis. (Pyrenees tend to be dominant and prefer to be around dogs of the opposite sex.) Despite her size, nothing would make her happier than being a lapdog!
