Pet of the Week: Ruby

Meet Ruby! She’s the Heart of the Rockies Radio Pet of the Week!

Ruby is an adorable 5-year-old female English Bulldog mix. She was found as a stray in Salida earlier this month and unfortunately no owner came forward for her. She is an adorable little gal who is guaranteed to brighten every day. She’s made fast friends with all of staff at the shelter and has the cutest little bark! Ruby would prefer a home where she is the only dog, which means it’s taken her a little longer to find that perfect fit.

Shelter Together Matching Campaign

We’re thrilled to announce our “Shelter Together Matching Campaign”! In the month of February all donations to the Shelter Together Matching campaign will be generously matched by the Phillips, Fitzgeralds, and Hamontre up to a $4,500 contribution. In partnership with Chaffee County Hospitality, this money will help provide over one hundred nights of motel room stays to unsheltered families and their pets in the coldest winter months. This will help ensure that unsheltered members of our community and their pets stay together this winter. Make sure to mark “Shelter Together” on all donations to ensure they’re applied to this fund! More details can be found on our website,
