Adoption Corner!


Introducing Wilma, Apple & Cupid!


February is Senior Sweetheart Month at the Shelter. All cats & dogs over 7 years of age are free to good homes. Wilma is an 8 year old Akita mix. Her owners lost their home & so did she. Wilma loves people and would be a great sidekick! She needs to be your one and only; selfish, we know, but we think she's worth it!
Come to the shelter and meet Wilma! There are loads of love and licks left in this beautiful girl!

Our girl could be the "Apple" of your eye! Fours years old , spayed, terrier mix Apple came in underweight, bitten by flies and fleas, & missing fur in September 2013. Although her hard life outdoors is over, she still awaits her forever home. Now healthy, beautiful and fun, she loves to chase balls and play tug. Apple adores human friends and is known for wanting to snuggle, hug and occasionally climb on people's laps! She loves meeting new people at adoption events, but is not a cat fan and nervous with other dogs. This is one delicious Apple. 


Two year old, neutered DSH Cupid #7971 certainly is a love. When his owner became very ill, Cupid was relinquished to the shelter. Quite confused and frightened just a month ago, he has adjusted to the change and now seeks out attention, petting and affection. Cupid (he has a little heart shaped nose) does not seem to mind the other cats and is a very curious and playful kitty. Cupid does not enjoy being in the car so he would not like long road trips and would much rather stay home and snuggle with his new love match.
