Featured Pet Of The Week

I am a very strong girl, who really wants to go go go!! I will need a person who can match my strength or you are going to be pulled pulled pulled! I am super sweet and have a great affection for toys. Some think I may of never known what a toy was before coming to the shelter and that's why I guard them. I do not want to be without a toy now, and I may not do good with children who don't understand not to touch my toys. Lady was brought to us stray, found her owner, and then relinquished to us. She really wants to do everything you ask, and with the right home will be a great companion.

Lisa-Domestic Short Hair
10-12 weeks   female

Hi my name is Lisa. I enjoy lounging around at the shelter on my back especially. I am a vocal sweet kitten and I love to cuddle. I also love to play and pounce on my stuffed donut!

Panther - DMH
11   Male

I'm Panther and I take great pride in being the BIGGEST kitty at the shelter. Now that I'm in my senior years, I would love to kind a nice home where I can spend all day stretched out and relaxing in sunbeams. I wouldn't mind some cuddle time, either!

5 yrs    Male

I am super affectionate and love to rub on you. I would rather be in a home by myself because I don't care for other kitties.

2 yrs    

Mitten - Longest resident!
6-9 months    Female

Elvira - Available on Tuesday
2 years old    Female

1-2 months   3 males 3 females

Morticia - DSH
1-3 yrs    Female

Tipy - In Foster
2 yrs    Female

My name is Tipy. I got this name because I got my tail caught in a trap. My tail was injured on the end pretty bad so the vet had to take some of it off. If you look at me I have the most beautiful 2 toned colored eyes. My shorter tail and gorgeous eyes make me super unique!

5 Months   Male

I'm a pretty eyed, long legged, tri-colored puppy. I'm super sweet and I do good on the leash.

Gremlin-Terrier mix
1-2 yrs   Male

Really friendly pup

Tex-Cur/Hound dog mix
8 yrs   Male

Tex is a handsome hound. He was a worker dog and is very good at getting what he wants. He has the prettiest puppy dog eyes and sure knows how to work them. He is house trained, and we believe he knows how to hunt so with hunting season coming in a few weeks he would be a great addition to the family! Tex is an older dog we are guessing around 9 years old but he is still active and loves to run around and go on walks

4-6 months    Male

Just look at us :) Me and Mork (the dork) were living outside with not much socializing and now we are here getting all this attention. I don't know how to act right now, so if you come to meet me please understand I am adjusting to this new sensation. We both are pretty calm for being so young, they keep telling us that anyway. I would love to stay with my brother so think of adopting us both!

Webster - Terrier Mix
3-4 yrs   Male

I'm Webster! I am a big friendly guy with the biggest smile in the shelter! I am looking for the perfect home where I can play all day and curl up on the couch all night. I am not a fan of some other animals, but I love human hugs and kisses! I don't know my own strength on walks sometimes, so I suggest someone strong be the one holding the leash. I'd love to meet you!

Poppy - German Shepard Mix
9-12 months    Female

I was born under a trailer, along with 4 siblings. Our mom was here at the shelter and one of my sisters was too! Mom got adopted and my sister escaped but still found herself with a good home. Now its my turn, I am looking for someone who is willing to show me that living on the streets isn't for me. Right now though, I still try to go back to living the tramp life! With Patience and time, like my sister I will be a great friend. I am super wanting to be loved but after living on the streets for 8 months without a human touch I am still well not trusting of what your going to do to me. Show me you care!

Sarah-Australian Cattle Dog mix
3 months   Female

Prince - Staffordshire terrier
1-3 yrs    Male

Bruno - Mixed breed medium
9-12 months    Male

I AM BRUNO! We don't talk about Bruno! Actually I am hoping you will talk about me and get me out of here! I need Space! I want to run! I don't do well with those things called cats, but other then that I am a good boy! Give me a backyard to run around for a little while each day and Nice couch to cuddle up on and I will be your bestest friend!!
