Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe

By: DogTrekker Staff

2013 was a banner year for our friends at the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe. In September, after years of hard work and fundraising, the city's cool new state-of-the-art animal shelter (a joint project of the HSTT and the Town of Truckee) opened its doors. Dogs and cats who'd been living in cramped kennels are now enjoying spacious quarters and fun play areas while they wait for their new families.

Currently enjoying some TLC in her foster home is Margo, a cute little old lady who wandered the streets of Reno before she got to safety. Margo prefers a quiet life and snuggling with her person; she also knows a few clever tricks, and shows every sign that she was once a beloved pet. Now she's looking for a loving home for her golden years.

Meanwhile, if you're looking for a fun event to share with your dog, sign up now for HSTT's 10th annual Ididarun, in which dogs race across the snow while pulling covered wagon sleds. Proceeds benefit HSTT, and everybody has a blast. It's happening Sunday, March 9, at the Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Lodge in Truckee.
