Twin Cedar K9 proudly presents...The man "Fonzie Fonzarelli". When Fonzie came to us for a temperament test his hair coat was so greasy and with the cocky attitude that he had, his name was instantly changed from Edward to the Fonz! Fonzie was very fearful of people and was very reactive when he was approached or if anyone tried to pick him up. Fonzie is about 8 months old and is a Chihuahua/Terrier mix.
Since our evening pack walks have helped so many shy and fearful dogs get better, poor little Fonzie went on his first pack walk (on lead of course) that very first day! The poor little guy was a bit overwhelmed at first but once he met Yujo ( Second Chance Graduate #200) he found somebody that he could buddy up with. It was very cute watching the two dogs trotting down the path side by side. Yujo weighs about 70 pounds and Fonzie is about 12 pounds!
Fonzie has gone on every pack walk since then and boy has he blossomed! He is now going on the walks off lead and has made no effort to run away. He comes every time he is called and he has even played in the water. He and Yujo are quite the pair and it is pure entertainment for all of us humans to watch them play together. In one week Fonzie has gone from a very fearful little dog who didn't want to be handled by anyone to a very affectionate boy who loves everyone he meets!!
Fonzie is a little dog with a big dog attitude!! Please give Marge` a call or drop her an email if you would like to come out to the ranch to meet this very special little boy. 209-223-3194 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Look whoooo is outside now! These 4 Great Horned Owls are growing fast and will be flying at 9 weeks of age.
Now there are 3! Today's addition is another male grey squirrel about the same age. The new one really likes the avocado. What a messy face!
Well, well, well. Look who we have here! It's Munchkin! This chill guy is just hangin' out, napping, while waiting for his furever home! He's been waiting way too long, and is available for adoption at The Feed Barn! Stop by and meet this soft, mellow, lovebug, of a cat, today! He is a character!
And another one arrived! A boy grey squirrel was following workers around at a construction site. He is a bit thin, but eating well so far. A potential buddy for the other one below.
After a few days of initial care, this little guy is doing great. And what a tail he has already! He is ready to transfer to a rehabber to begin his voyage back to the wild. I wonder who will be his caregiver?
The only thing these cats had in common was that they were Unneutered male adult cats allowed to roam. Ace, a beautiful black, long haired cat was suffering from an upper respiratory infection, infected eyes, ear mites, ﬂeas, ticks and the battle scars that testiﬁed to his rough life.
The second cat was a big orange beauty, hit by a car. We were initially hopeful because he had a simple jaw fracture that could heal well with surgery. Sadly, he had serious head trauma which took his life. We appreciate the kind people who brought these cats to us and urge everyone to neuter their male cats to prevent them from roaming and ﬁghting. Sweet Ace goes to his ranch home this weekend!
Don’t forget Mother’s Day on May 10!

This Cedar Waxwing was brought in by kind people Friday night after they saw it struggling to fly on the road. It has a shoulder injury, but should heal and be able to be released. This is a common bird, but not seen at bird feeders because it eats berries and insects. They have a mask, bright red "wax" on their wing tips and a bright yellow tipped tail...gorgeous!

And now we have TWO Great Horned Owl babies. These birds imprint easily so we took a second one from a neighboring rehabilitation group. Growing up fast and wild, these two are on their way back to freedom!
