Remi - American Pitbull Terrier Mix - 30 lbs.

Ruby - Boxer Mix - 55 lbs.
1-3 yrs    Female

I’m a wiggly boxer mix who adores your affection! Kisses are my favorite thing to give. I don’t get along with other dogs too well right now, I like to be the center of attention. I walk pretty well on a leash. Come to the shelter and meet me today!

Albert - Staffordshire Terrier Mix
7 yrs    Male

Alberts the name, but friends call me Alby. I have some health issues that I'm working on currently. I do well with other dogs, walk good on a leash, and eat treats like it's nobody's business. Pretty hefty guy right now but with constant exercise, I'll shed the pounds in no time. If you'd like to come check me out, visit the shelter today!

1 Year   Female

1-3 years   Female

I am a domestic short haired cat. I like to move the litter around from inside my litter box, so I sometimes make a mess. I just had kittens, so I will not be available until they are weaned.




Dog Collars--Medium-sized collars are the most used. Hatfield Control Collars (available at Walmart) are a favorite. Otherwise metal clasps are preferred for strength.
Leashes--strong leashes are preferred. No retractable leashes, please.
Toys--Especially strong dog toys like Kong, Orka, Nylabones. And feathered toys for the cats.
Kitty Litter--basic clay, not the more expensive scoopable or clumping
Food--Dog/Puppy & Cat/Kitten dry or canned food.
Dawn Dish Soap - the original kind
Tweezers--with strong points
Paper Towels
Aluminum Cans or other metals for Recycling--the money is used for the shelter animal medical fund.
Gas Gift Cards--Helps to offset costs of transferring unadopted pets to other adoption agencies.
Cash Donations--always useful for medical needs for injured/sick pets, spaying & neutering, supplies, building updates & maintenance.
