Dog of the Month

Dana was found wandering around the Forest Lake area. He was emaciated and covered in scabs and whelps. After a lot of TLC from the shelter staff, including regular bathing, medications, and ointments, Dana started to heal. He has a gentle personality and loves to play fetch. He is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Dana is about 4 years old and heartworm negative.

Dog of the Month

Daisy came to the shelter in December 2017 with 6 puppies that she lovingly cared for. She is learning to trust people and can be very shy. She is a quiet dog who will enjoy a quiet home. Daisy is 2 years old.

Cat of the Month

Sgt Pepper is a 9-year-old Domestic Short Hair, male cat. He came to the shelter when his owner decided to move and not take him along. He doesn’t hold a grudge, he just waits patiently for a loving family to find him. He is quiet, gentle and sometimes shy. He enjoys his breakfast by the window and his dinner at the front of his cage. Being a senior, his adoption fee is $40.
