Featured Pets


Mack is a 2 yr. old male Pit Bull that came in as a stray. He was found out in the middle of the woods. He’s a big guy, has a wonderful temperament, and the big Pit Bull smile. He is good with medium and large dog friends but needs a NO cat home. Children should be older because of his strength. He is a real sweetheart and loves people. He is now neutered.


Lola is a 3 yr. old spayed small Angora type house bunny. Her adoption fee is $40 and includes her cage. She is sweet and uses a litterbox.


Meet Naughtyz, a 6 year old, black and white, front-declawed, neutered male, who was surrendered by his owner. Now don’t let the name trick you, as this guy is far from naughty! He is a little bit shy when you first meet him, but once you spend some time with him and give him lots of attention, he will be your best buddy. He is good with children and other cats.


Cookie is a 6 yr. old neutered black and white male. He absolutely loves being brushed! He is good with children, other cats, and respectful dogs. He is a real sweetheart and very friendly!
