Tilly came to us from a horrific breeding/fighting situation. After 20 drains and over 100 stitches, she is now a beautiful, happy blue nosed beauty. She just needs a nice, loving home to call her own. She is about 4 years old, spayed and up to date on all vaccines and tests. Tilly asks for so little but gives her loyalty as if no one has ever betrayed her. Looking for her to be a single pet who will be spoiled rotten!

Handsome Rusty #8840 is your typical 5 yr young, orange tabby DSH... big and mushy. Rusty is a bit shy @ first, then warms and seeks contact. He was surrendered to us along with his 9 other siblings when his former owner got evicted. Rusty gets along great with other cats and doesn't seem to mind well mannered canines either. What else do we know about Rusty? He just loves, loves, loves attention so much that he waits to crawl into your lap just to cuddle. Rusty needs a patient person as being in the shelter has really traumatized him.

Delicious Apple #2459 approximately 4 yrs young, sadly is a longtimer. She arrived as a stray 22 months ago - underweight, missing hair and fly bites on her body - making it pretty evident that she spent most, if not all, of her life outside. Apple is a volunteer favorite who loves to play, chase balls, run fast, and has lots of energy. She has been on events, loves to snuggle, and even thinks she's a lap dog! Apple would prefer to be the only dog in her home because she seems to be a little inexperienced with dogs.
