Ever since Big Daddy was left tied to a gate outside the Greenbelt Animal Shelter in July 2011 with bad teeth and a large tumor, he has won hearts.

Sally has had a sad journey, now she needs a new home.
Sally is back at the Greenbelt Animal Shelter, after getting her hopes up that she had a new home. Kim DeAngelis, manager of the Greenbelt Animal Shelter, shared that Sally had a very loving home with a Green Ridge House resident, until he got sick. Her best friend is in the hospital now, and Sally won’t be able to live with him again. So please reach out to Sally. Her Green Ridge friend would feel much better knowing that his little girl is taken care of. Sally is a three-year old domestic shorthair. DeAngelis reported that she’s been spayed; has had her shots, including rabies and distemper; and in addition — all the animals at the shelter have been flea treated and de-wormed. The Greenbelt Animal Shelter is located at 550A Crescent Road…

It's National Adopt-a-Cat Month, and the Greenbelt Animal Shelter may have just the one for you, the two-year old tortiseshell, Miss Bonnie.
Bonnie the tortie was a stray until a family took her in, but, alas, though little Bonnie loves people, she's not so big on furry companions, so they brought her to the Greenbelt Animal Shelter. I know that makes her a bit harder to adopt, but I can tell you, when I went to visit her on May 26, 2011, she seemed curious and bright -- and gave not one hiss or swat, despite that obnoxious box that kept flashing and going click click to get her picture. "She loves people," Kim DeAngelis, manager of the Greenbelt Animal Shelter, said. Despite her big heart, Bonnie's still at the shelter this week. I worry with all the little kittens popping up in shelters all across the area this spring, Miss Bonnie may get overlooked, which would be a real …

June is National-Adopt-A-Cat month, and you need look no further than Greenbelt to find a furry friend.
June is National Adopt-A-Cat Month. This weekend we'll introduce you to Bonnie the Torti at the Greenbelt Animal Shelter, who's on the lookout for a good home. In the meantime, Patch just got word Wednesday from Kim DeAngelis, manager of the Greenbelt Animal Shelter, that they have extra large number of kittens. Eight of these cuddly furballs were rescued this week, DeAngelis said, adding they came from all parts of Greenbelt , east, west and center. The American Humane Association reports that each spring, during what they call "kitten season," thousands of newborn kittens end up in shelters. So if you want a new kitten, this might be a good time to take one home. Before you do, though, consider these ten adoption tips from the American …

Toby is a gentle dog with a lot of love to share. He's a bit lonely, though, since his best friend, Dianne Coleman-Kilby, passed away.
This new regular feature is dedicated with love to Toby the beagle, friend of Diane Coleman-Kilby, who left this world to go on to a place her Greenbelt American Legion Post #136 family calls Post Everlasting. I met Diane my first week in Greenbelt. From day one, I could tell that she really loved Toby, and it was easy to see why. Toby is a gentle soul, who is all about the love. Kim DeAngelis, manager of the Greenbelt Animal Shelter, where Toby is staying, reported that she's never seen him act aggressively towards a person or animal. "He is just adorable," DeAngelis said. I can't help thinking that the lucky person who adopts Toby will be a beneficiary of Diane's gratitude. DeAnglis said she was told that Toby is 14. But, as the apple of…
