Dog of the Month

Sunny is an energetic, 50 pound, neutered male Chow/Shepherd mix. He was found by the dog groomer at Southern States and he was treated to a spa day as she waited for Animal Control to come pick him up. He was recently neutered when he was found in May. He is a very energetic dog and will require plenty of exercise and training. $85 adoption fee.

Senior of the Month

Plucky is a 14-year-old neutered male. He loves to get attention and rub up against you. He is friendly and social, but most importantly he is diabetic. His owner passed away while visiting a friend in town during the hurricane, leaving him and his 8 feline siblings homeless. He is a gentle cat with a lot of love to give. Please give him a chance. $40 adoption fee.

Cat of the Month

Teeter is a sight to behold! At a minimalistic 16 pounds, she is 5 years old and spayed. She is a long hair cat with sass and an appetite. She was found wandering around looking for snacks by the Harris Teeter Grocery Store. She is large and in charge and has lots of love to give. $65 adoption fee.
