Featured Pets


Barney is a middle aged Beagle that came in as a stray. He did not go off to die. He is a sweet, happy go lucky, adorable guy! He loves lying on a cozy blanket on the raised dog bed. We can NOT believe that someone is not missing this dog!! He was already neutered and obviously someone’s nice companion. He is hard of hearing, but healthy otherwise.

Lainey(black and white female) and Vango (brown male)

Lainey(black and white female) and Vango (brown male) are bonded siblings. They are both spayed/neutered. They were born 8/26/19. Lainey loves to explore, jump and kick. Vango is shy and takes a little to warm up. They both enjoy their veggies. Their cage is not included in adoption. They will require a large cage for their size and energy. Their adoption fee is $50.


Boo is a 1 yr. old American Bulldog/Pit Bull mix. He is a BIG STRONG boy!!! He has a wonderful temperament, but needs an experienced owner who is firm yet kind, and can handle his strength. A secure fenced yard is a must! He is good with other dogs (he’d be a powerful player) and is afraid of cats. He is wonderful with children but they should be somewhat older due to his strength. Paws to Train Dog Training has donated obedience lessons for him. He is now neutered.


Natasha is a 2-3 year old grey spayed female. She is bonded to her sister Amore. She is good with cats and kids. She isn’t a fan of dogs though. She is a large friendly, cuddler.


Norman is a 4-5 year old grey tiger male. He came to us as a stray already neutered and front declawed. Again we wonder where his owners are! He is a very large boy that loves to explore.


Penny is a 5 year old female tiger. She came to the shelter with her 6 kittens who have all been adopted. She has now been spayed, so no more litters for her. She is a wonderful gal. She likes to cuddle and be around her humans. Beautiful Penny will be waiting to meet you.
