Featured Pets


Charlie is a 15 yr. old neutered male Pekinese/Beagle/Doxie mix. He came in with Sonny and Dexter. Sadly their owner became homeless. He is good with other dogs, older children, and knows some commands. He is friendly and lively. He still has a lot of life and love to give. They all are adorable! They were very loved and had been with their owner since puppies.


This cutie is Sniffles, a 7-8 year old tortie spayed female who came in along with Sprinkles, Chubs, Frosting, and Misty as sadly their owner passed away. She is a total lover, wanting all of the affection she can get.


This gorgeous gal is Elsa, a 2-3 year old dilute tortie female who came in as a stray. She is pretty outgoing and loves any type of love or affection. She even was already spayed! Set up an appointment to come spend some time with her!
