Jim

Sex: Male
Breed: Pitbull x
Age: 1 year old
We realized we were short a dog at North Kern prison so everyone welcome Jim!
This guy came to us from Kern County Animal services and has joined the crew that went into North Kern prison. He has a positive, upbeat and friendly personality that we know will help the more shy dogs in the program.
Jim will be in the Pawsitive Change program for 3 months and will be adoptable once he’s out. While in the program he’ll learn basic obedience skills to make him a better family member once adopted. We can’t wait to see this boy shine!

Meghan

Sex: Female
Breed: Chihuahua x
Age: 7 years old
Ladies and gents, allow us to cordially introduce you to the great and powerful MEGHAN!
This little girl arrived from foster care at Kern County Animal Services. She’d been picked up as a stray in Taft with 2 broken legs. The shelter vet staff tried their best to treat her broken legs for 2 months but they did not set or heal appropriately and they reached out for rescue help.
Meghan is a DELIGHT and the sweetest girl! She’s good with other dogs and has blended right in with the dogs in her fosters home. Imaging of her legs has been sent over to VCA-West. Repairing them may be impossible due to how old the breaks are and she may need a double amputation. We’ll know more once she’s seen the vet at VCA. We hope to have a surgery date soon.
At this time Meghan is not adoption ready as we need time to work through her medical issues and get her healthy.

Hippo

Sex: Male
Breed: Pitbull x
Age: 8-9 years old
Who doesn’t love a big grey land Hippo? We have our very own and couldn’t help but name him the same. Meet Hippo!
We picked up this chunk of burning love from the Inyo County shelter. He has quickly become a ranch favorite! He tips the scales at 113 lbs and is great with everything— dogs, people and cats. He may be a senior but he’s very spunky and lively. He moves well but nonetheless needs to go on the Marley’s Mutts diet plan for plump puppies! Honestly, he could afford to drop about 30-35 pounds, and once he does, will be much better suited to the next 5-6 years of living!
If you love the big guys, think you could stick with a diet program and wouldn’t mind a large hippopotamus taking over your couch apply to bring our new favorite boy home to your family.

Champion

Sex: Male
Breed: German Shepherd
Age: 7 years old
Shepherds are amazing and loyal companions and Champion (Champ) is no exception. He sat at the shelter with a broken scapula and although in excruciating pain it never altered his amazingly sweet personality. Champ had been picked up as a stray by Kern County Animal Services. They have no idea how he was injured but we suspect he’d been hit by a car. We scheduled an appointment with a specialist but Champ was lucky and the specialist did not recommend surgery but instead continued crate rest and slow walks to aide in his recovery.
Champ is still recovering but is feeling so much better! He’s a super sweet dog and great with people of all ages. We’re working on his socialization with other dogs but have been taking it slow due to his injuries. So all you shepherd lovers out there this boy is pretty perfect and we know you’ll think so too.

Bonnie

Sex: Female
Breed: Border Collie x
Age: 10months – 1 year old
Bonnie was picked up as a stray and her family never came for her. We’re not sure why because she has an amazing happy go lucky personality. Bonnie is a friendly sweet girl who is great with other dogs and loves children. She’s active and fun as most young border collies are. Her upbeat energy will make her a great addition to our  Pawsitive Change Prison Program as she will help balance the more shy dogs in the program. The program will also teach her basic obedience skills so her energy is easier to manage.
Bonnie will go into prison Sept 21st. She be in for 3 months and will be adoptable once she’s out. We think her perfect family would include a fun dog or children time play with and would be an active family to keep up with her energy needs.

Willie

Sex: Male
Breed: Terrier x
Age: 1.5 years old
Willie came in to Kern County Animal Services as a stray with an eye injury. The shelter unfortunately had to remove his eye but he’s healing up and totally unfazed by the change in his appearance. Willie is a happy go lucky little guy and we think he’d be a great addition to our  Pawsitive Change Prison Program. His confident energy will help balance the more shy dogs in the program.
Willie will eval for the prison program next week and if accepted will go into prison Sept 21st. He’ll be in for 3 months and will be adoptable once he’s out.

Heidi

Sex: Female

Age: 4-5 years old
Heidi came in to Kern County Animal Services as a stray. She was very fearful at the shelter and fearful dogs have a hard time in a shelter environment so we pulled her. Our Pawsitive Change Program will help come out of her shell so we’re hopeful to have her go into the next round.
Heidi will eval for the prison program this week and if accepted will go into prison Sept 21st. She’ll be in for 3 months and will be adoptable once she’s out.
