Today (July 6, 2018) is a very sad day at YAAP. Our beloved shelter dog "Shoe" crossed the rainbow bridge this morning. Shoe crossed at his "happy place", the YAAP lobby, in the loving arms of his Mom, "Gail" with several YAAP volunteers at his side. Shoe greeted, loved and amused many, many visitors with his famous begging for belly rubs over the past years. There will never be another "SHOE".

A memorial has been established to honor his memory. Donations may be sent to YAAP, 1511 No. Platte, York, NE 68467 or follow the donate button below.


RIP Big Guy, you were loved by all of us and will never be forgotten.

The legacy left by the amazing Shoe

Jul 13, 2018

What can you say about a dog who made you smile just by looking at him? A dog who never knew a stranger and loved anyone who would rub his belly. A dog who relished the job of greeting each and every visitor to his second home, York Adopt a Pet, and just ate up all the love – and treats! – that came his way.

As many of you may know I am an Army Brat. I moved to York in 1970 when my father left for his second tour of duty in Vietnam in four years. A native Nebraskan, my father wanted us to be near family and friends. Marion and Elaine Bonham of York were some of those friends and the couple kindly agreed to watch over my mother, brother Mike and I while Dad was gone. They adopted us … well sort of.

Back on Oct. 20, 2006 my first article of Paws for Pets debuted in the York News Times. Today is a few months short of 12 full years of writing about the cats and kittens at York Adopt a Pet. Seems as though I am still singing the same song and telling the same stories 300 stories later, but thought I would share part of my first story of Paws for Pets published on Oct. 20, 2006.

He is in the sunset of his life. A life well lived. I am speaking of Shoe, the chocolate lab that lives in my home, but belongs to all of those that know him.

Every adoption is important at York Adopt a Pet with both dogs and cats. Some adoptions are just a little more exciting and extraordinary. Especially when you are adopting multiple kittens to what is the perfect “forever home.”

We live not in “a material world” as the 1980s song stated … it seems increasingly like we are living in “a disposable world.” Plastic water bottles and grocery bags, diapers, convenience store pop cups, butter tubs, whipped topping tubs and milk jugs, just to name a few. Heck, when I was growing up we saved our pop bottles for refilling, mom washed our diapers and our milk came in glass bottles or cardboard cartons. Groceries were packed in paper and whipped cream was cream, whipped in your kitchen. All of this has to go somewhere and the end result isn’t always good for any of us residing on the planet.

We all have those moments in life when we want to pump our fist and say, YES! One of those moments when persistence pays off.
