Come to the shelter (when the roads are safe enough for you to do so!) and meet Bailey

We have wonderful companions available for adoption at the WHS shelter, and this beautiful, rambunctious girl is a particularly special treat. Bailey is looking for her loving forever-home, and we would love to help the right family pair up with her.
This goofball is Bailey! She is available for adoption at the +Whatcom Humane Society! Bailey has been here since October, and she needs a patient home that will have a lot of time for socialization and training. Once she feels comfortable around you she is a sweetheart!

Moscow Strays

The life of a stray dog is particularly short and grim. In Moscow, the situation is more dire still, where any given dog is forced to compete for resources with some 35,000 other strays. Over generations, these intuitive canines have learned to adjust to their urban surroundings. Their strategies are impressive: Muscovite strays have been witnessed obeying traffic lights to avoid being hit by cars. Their antics in getting handouts from humans are equally remarkable. Packs are known to send out adorable little puppies to beg for treats while the more frightening members wait in the wings. But easily the most extraordinary feat exhibited by these dogs is their ability to navigate the elaborate Moscow subway system. Showing uncanny timing and sense of direction, some strays use the trains to travel all throughout the city. Moreover, the typically surly and snappish feral dogs completely alter their behavior when riding the train, acting friendly toward human commuters, lest they be kicked off.

The cutest herd on the planet!

Seriously, though, this is why we always recommend spaying and neutering your pets whenever possible.
