Hooterville has new housing for homeless dogs

* This is Indy a "very special needs" dog. Found July 4th last year, she was adopted and then abandoned.
   Her Hooterville Pets Safehaus tag enabled her to be brought back to Hooterville again where she is waiting for a permanent home.
   Indy is one big sweetheart. She is about 10 years old and has a thyroid problem, which is now being controlled by medication, and is on a diet. She loves everyone including cats and other dogs.
   Indy is one of the dogs about to experience a great change at Hooterville Pets Safehaus.
   This week marks the beginning of a collaboration between the no-kill animal shelter started in Woodinville over nine years ago and the newly remodeled Cascade Kennels off the Woodinville-Duvall Road.
   Thanks to an anonymous donor and Cascade Kennels, Hooterville is now able to house their homeless dogs where they can be walked, played with and trained while they wait to be adopted into permanent homes.
   New adoption hours begin Feb. 17 and will be on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Hooterville will have its own entrance off the parking lot.
   Also new to the shelter is the Mobile Dog Adoption Van which will provide up to 20 dogs for families to meet and lots of help and information on choosing the right dog for each family.
