Featured Pets

Copper

These three rabbits are brothers. Some “wonderful” person didn’t want them anymore and turned them loose cause you know domestic rabbits can turn wild, right????? There were four, but one was hit by a car. They are very sweet, approximately 6-8 months old, and are now neutered. They are house bunnies and can be adopted separately. They will need a cage.

Bronze

There were four, but one was hit by a car. They are very sweet, approximately 6-8 months old, and are now neutered. They are house bunnies and can be adopted separately. They will need a cage.

Reba

Reba is a 3 yr. old spayed Bloodhound/Shepherd/Lab mix. She likes to walk , go for rides, and be with people. She is housebroke and crate trained. She is good with older children, and she should meet any dog friends. She is very strong and MUST be an only dog.

Rucker

Rucker is a medium sized 8 yr. old neutered Aussie/Sheltie mix. He and Scooter are the remaining two of 12 that were taken away from a hoarding situation back in April. The dogs were unsocialized, would urinate and defecate out of fear, and didn’t know how to walk on a leash. He has taken the longest to come around. He is good with other dogs, doesn’t mind cats, and older children would be best. He can be protective of his cage and his people. An experienced dog owner is needed. He has really come a long way, but still needs some patience and love.

Hammond

Remember Hammond? He was here a few months ago but he was returned due to his busy nature. He’s a 1 year old, orange and white tiger male who came in as a stray. He loves everyone, other cats are a plus because a friend would help get that energy out. He would love some kids too, especially if they play with him. We had him neutered.

Ruth

Do you like sass? A little fire? Meet Ruth, she is a beautiful female who came in as a stray. She is 3 years old and loves attention. She would probably do best with older kids who would respect when she wants attention. We tell her that there is someone for everyone so her day will come. We had her spayed. She is good with other cats, tolerates dogs, and loves to play with toys.
