OLIVER

Oliver was adopted by the shelter's Adoption Coordinator on a scorching summer day in 2005. Oliver, along with what became known as THE GROOVY BUNCH--Oliver and his littermates--were surrendered when their guardian could no longer afford to feed them. All the dogs weighed about 60 pounds, had long fur and friendly dispositions. At six months, Oliver began his "job" at the shelter, and continues working in 2016; he's the evaluation dog. Oliver meets almost every dog who passes a temperament evaluation and is placed for adoption. He's earned his kibble, that's for sure, and he is well-loved by shelter staff and volunteers.
