THANK YOU 

Meet Silvie and Hela, two-year-old sisters, up-to-date on shots but not spayed.

Hela is intelligent, independent, and enjoys her alone time. She’s sweet, slightly food-territorial, and potentially a good guard dog. Hela gets along with cats after initial excitement. Keeping Silvie and Hela together in a new home is preferred.

Silvie is very playful and silly, a smart escape artist who loves attention. She’s great with other dogs, used to being around cats, but skittish with new people. She needs patient attention to socialize and is part Husky, Lab, German Shepherd, and Rottweiler. Enjoys water, running, and squeaky toys.

Both Hela and Silvie need human socialization and are not housebroken. They’re used to outdoor living but are trainable and respond well to treats. They’ve been around livestock but need supervision and are calm in cars.

Poncho

THIS DOG IS NOT IN THE CARE OF THE ALTERNATIVE HUMANE SOCIETY. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. PLEASE SEND ALL INQUIRIES TO THE OWNER AT at debbe5@hotmail.com

Hi, my name is Poncho. My mom saved me from a kill shelter in Texas. I really like it here in the Pacific NW and especially enjoy having my head out the car window when we go for rides. It’s so fun to smell my new world.

I’m about 2½ years old and am a mishmash of retriever, beagle, and maybe cattle dog. I get along very well with other dogs. Unfortunately, I do like chasing cats so a home without cats would be best. I am neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and housebroken.

Everyone says how adorable I am. I like to roll over and get belly rubs from my admirers. My ideal forever home would have a fenced yard and a person that can either be with me or take me with them. I love being close to my person even if it’s just while I chew on my bones or play with my toys.

I am a healthy boy except for being treated for heart worms. But no worries it’s not contagious to humans and can only be transmitted to other animals by mosquitoes. If your other pets are on preventative care, they are safe. Also my treatment is being paid for so no worries about the cost.

I am a smart boy and am easily trainable. I already know “sit, stay, wait for me, up (on the bed), come”, etc. I love coming in from the yard and having my mom gently wipe all of my paws with a towel.

I promise if you give me a chance, I will be a loving, funny, loyal companion. Let’s meet.

Maggie

Meet Maggie May, a sweet and smart 2-year-old Pitbull/French Bulldog mix, weighing 35 pounds. She’s spayed, crate and potty trained, and loves being active. 

 Maggie enjoys following household activities, snuggling, belly rubs, and is great with dog-savvy kids.

She needs a home with a tall, secure fence, as she’s jumped over a 4-foot fence before. Maggie loves outdoor activities like fetch, and would thrive with an active family that enjoys camping and beach trips.

Chance

THIS DOG IS NOT IN THE CARE OF THE ALTERNATIVE HUMANE SOCIETY. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. PLEASE SEND ALL INQUIRIES TO THE OWNER AT n.monro30@gmail.com.

Chance is a 6 year old lab-mix who has been an incredible family dog. He is neutered and up-to-date on his shots. We want to make sure he goes to the right home so his rehoming fee with be discussed with interested parties only.

Chance is very affectionate, athletic, and eager to please. He has been in a house with very young kids and is great with them- very patient and sweet. He loves to hike, camp, and LOVES to chase a ball. He is very energetic and playful, but will also happily cuddle up on the couch.

Chance gets along with other dogs when we are out and about, but he does not want to live with another male dog. We believe he would do best as an only dog but with slow, proper introductions may be ok with another dog. He gets along fine with cats.

Nina

THIS DOG IS NOT IN THE CARE OF THE ALTERNATIVE HUMANE SOCIETY. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. PLEASE SEND ALL INQUIRIES TO THE OWNER AT lewis20242025@gmail.com.

Nina is a 2½ year old black lab mix. She is very sweet, chill, and she looks at you like there is no other. She knows basic commands like sit, down, and wait. She is housebroken and is up to date on her vaccines and flea/heartworm treatment. She does have a rehoming fee.

Nina gets along with other dogs once she gets to know them but has some issues with resource guarding that need to be watched. She would probably go best in a home without another dog.

We are guessing Nina wasn’t around many people as a pup so she growls and barks at strangers, but is getting less shy and accepts new people into her life, including kids!

Mia

THIS DOG IS NOT IN THE CARE OF THE ALTERNATIVE HUMANE SOCIETY. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. PLEASE SEND ALL INQUIRIES TO THE OWNER AT courtneywylie@gmail.com.

Please meet Mia. She is approximately 3 years old, ~40 lbs, spayed, microchipped, and current on all her vaccinations. We take her to Bellingham Veterinary.

We are sadly having to rehome our sweet cuddle bug Mia, as she is becoming increasingly aggressive with our other dog (food/resource guarding) and we believe she'd be so much better off in a home with no other pets and a calmer environment. She is an absolute sweetheart with kids and people, and really just needs to be in a quieter/calmer environment where she is the sole focus of someone's love!

Her ideal home environment would be without any other dogs or cats, but she is absolutely amazing with kids. That said, older kids that can keep things calm around her are probably a better idea for the time being. One issue she does have is with delivery drivers—she got stepped on accidentally by one a few months back and ever since then she's shown more signs of aggression to them. So she wouldn't do well at a rural farm/free-range location where deliveries might be happening regularly and without supervision, unless she could reliably be in a fenced area.

We rescued Mia from Houston, where she'd had a litter of adorable Ridgeback mix puppies (who were also adopted around the PNW region). She's sweet, cuddly, and just wants to snuggle on the couch with you all day long. We get the best little howls and wiggles from her when we come home. She is potty trained and knows some basic commands, but definitely should be in a fenced yard because she loves to follow her nose and chase critters if she can!

Someone looking for a sweet girl that doesn't need too much exercise beyond daily walks and some romping in the yard would be just perfect for Mia. We absolutely adore her and want to find the best fit in a new loving home for her. Her rehoming fee will be discussed with interested parties.

Lily

THIS DOG IS NOT IN THE CARE OF THE ALTERNATIVE HUMANE SOCIETY. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. PLEASE SEND ALL INQUIRIES TO THE OWNER AT kateedaley118@gmail.com.

Please meet Lily. She is a 4 year old shepherd mix who is up-to-date on shots, housebroken and spayed.

Lily is a big sweetheart; eager to please, huge on cuddling, and always happy to play. She loves to snuggle up in bed but is also just as happy to sleep in her own bed. She also has lots of energy and would love to be walked/exercised regularly.

She currently lives with 2 older dogs, 3 cats and some chickens! She loves to try to play with them all and co-exists with them well. She does like to try to roughhouse with the cats, but has no problem being "put in her place”. She also has a big, un-fenced yard she likes to roam around on, and does not have any current issues with wandering/running away.

Lily does have anxiety and is very wary of new people, especially men. However, if given patience and love, she can be quick to warm up. Otherwise, she is extremely friendly to every dog she meets, and is very good at making friends! She even likes to "guide" any new puppies she meets. She also has a big burn scar on her side that is from when she was a stray in AZ. It is no cause for concern right now, but I like to keep an eye on it.

I would love for her to find a safe, loving, and active home that can give her the attention she deserves. Her rehoming fee will be discussed. Please reach out if Lily might be the girl missing from your life.

Stitch

THIS DOG IS NOT IN THE CARE OF THE ALTERNATIVE HUMANE SOCIETY. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. PLEASE SEND ALL INQUIRIES TO THE OWNER AT oyoung870@gmail.com.

Please meet Stitch. He is a 3-4 years old and believed to be a Staffordshire/Shar Pei mix. He is 65ish lbs, neutered, up to date on shots and housebroken.

He was rescued off the streets in 2022 and we have been working hard to show him how life can be good. He loves his routine and is good with our 10-year-old. He is a huge cuddler and loves giving lots of kisses.

Stitch is a great dog but needs time to adjust to new people and situations. He needs someone who is experienced and has the time, patience, and know-how to handle some of his behavioral challenges. He needs a slow introduction to other dogs because he can be dog-reactive. Stitch has a high prey drive, so cats or small animals would be a bad mix. He also might knock over smaller children, due to his size and energy. He has some resource-guarding issues too, that we have been working on.
Stitch loves his routine and is good with our 10 year old. He is a huge cuddler and loves giving lots of kisses. He also loves sun bathing and just relaxing out in the yard. He is very quiet and rarely barks. He does well in the car and on road trips. His favorite daily activity is running with us while we go for bike rides. Stitch walks well on a leash and needs a ride/run or a good walk daily. You’ll know if he gets pent up because he makes it clear with his puppy-like dance moves and wiggles.

We want what’s best for Stitch and are hoping you might be the patient, loving home he needs to continue growing into the amazing dog we see him turning into. Are you that home?
