2 year old. Neutered Male. Great Pyrenees/Retriever mix.

I am a diamond in the ruff (no pun intended). I'm scary smart, strong, silly, social and a wee bit stubborn. Basically I was allowed to grow up thinking I was in charge-never a good thing in a dog, especially not an 80 pounder. I love to play fetch and am really quick on my feet for a big guy.


11 year old. Neutered Male. Akita.

I am an old fella who would really rather be snoozing on your porch than kenneled here. I was surrendered by my family because I am going deaf and blind and am getting snappish when I am startled. I lived with them my whole life and I don't know why they gave up on me so late in the game. My health is reasonably good for my age-some dental disease.


4 year old. Neutered Male. Domestic Medium Hair Black and White.

I arrived at the shelter as a stray on April 12 and boy I am ready to move on. My friends here at the shelter are great but there is just nothing like a home of my own. I get along great with all of my other feline friends here at the shelter. My new family will need to brush me daily or my hair will become very matted.


6 month old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair Tortoiseshell.

My owner passed away and there was no one else to care for me so I was brought to the shelter. I am a little kitty with a big attitude. I have lived with dogs but do not like other cats - I want all the attention. Be sure to give my belly a gentle rub when you visit.
