Senior of the Month

This month, we are featuring a family: Squirt, Verbal and Lucky were all surrendered by their owner. Squirt is a 9 year old, domestic short hair, tabby and white, neutered male cat. He is friendly and social and weighs in at 14 pounds. He would love to be adopted with his brother Verbal if at all possible. $40 adoption fee.

Dog of the Month

Lucky, unfortunately, didn’t wind up so lucky. She was surrendered with her 2 feline friends Verbal and Squirt. The transition was difficult for her and she cried for almost 3 days in her kennel. She is a sweet, gentle, beagle-lab mix. Lucky is 5 years old, spayed and up to date on vaccinations. She is heartworm negative and weighs 48 pounds. She would love to have you come visit and just snuggle for a few minutes. $85 adoption fee.

Cat of the Month

Verbal was surrendered with his family members Squirt and Lucky. Ideally, he would love to be adopted to the same home with his feline brother Squirt. He lives up to his name, as he is very vocal and talkative. Verbal is a 7 year old, neutered, male, domestic short hair, orange tabby. He weighs 14 pounds and enjoys basking in the sun. $40 adoption fee
