Senior of the Month

Buddy Love is our featured SENIOR OF THE MONTH. Sadly, Buddy and his bonded partner Sherman were simply left at the front door of the shelter in an open, wooden shipping crate. Cold, scared and hungry, they were happy to see the shelter staff when they arrived in the morning. Buddy is sweet, friendly and loves to snuggle. Estimated to be 8 plus years old, a deer head Chihuahua, neutered and heart worm negative. $40 adoption fee.

Dog of the Month

Sherman Klump is a sweet approximately 8 plus year old, Chihuahua. He and his bonded friend, Buddy were left at the front door of the shelter with nothing more than a small blanket inside a large shipping crate. Sherman had a lot of fleas that caused some hair loss, but he is well on the road to recovery. He loves to snuggle and hide under blankets to stay warm. Both Buddy and Sherman hope to find a home together. $40 adoption fee.

Cat of the Month

Sweet Misty Rain is approximately 4 years old. She was a stray found stranded on the sidewalk in active labor. Lucky for her, a good Samaritan took her in and helped her care for her 6 kittens until they were old enough for all of them to come to the shelter. She was a wonderful mother and is a sweet and gentle cat. She has a beautiful torti coat. $65 adoption fee.
