If you have an adoption story you would like to share, email story and photos here:


Hi, I’m Ole (Ricky was my shelter name) and I was a puppy when I was adopted in January 2006.  I’m a little older now and they tell me I’ve grown to be quite the companion.  I live in the country and love all the things there are to sniff and explore outdoors.  I enjoy long walks, car rides and camping trips.  I just can’t get enough of that fun stuff!  Special thanks to Headwaters Animal Shelter for helping me get a good start on life!
