Adoption Corner!
Poor Reina #8173 is guesstimated at 4+ years old; she's been with us 1/2 year since being picked up with another dog at the Southern State. Her ears had fly bites, both eyes need entropian surgery and she had been bred multiple times. We remedies all those problems, put her on thyroid meds and have been monitoring minor seizure activity. She rules the front office, ofttimes sitting in a chair at the desk. Reina loves people, shares her toys and treats with her two legged faves, is not a fan of other four legged beings and wants her own home

Meet our very special 5-year-old tuxedo, Ruby #9793. She was abandoned in front of another shelter then brought to us. A car was seen pulling away @ the time so we suspect she had been someone's housecat. We cannot understand how anyone would just leave this precious girl all alone to fend for herself. Ruby is great with other cats, showed no handling issues, has been updated on all vax/med, and would totally LOVE to just be in your lap all day long. So if you are looking for a sweet companion search no further and come meet Ruby TODAY

Valentino #9494 is a 6yr AmStaff mix who came in as stray almost 1/2 his lifetime ago! This handsome, active boy is a staff and volunteer favorite, loves water, is playful & goofy & knows his basic commands. He is affectionate and is friendly with people, and is learning to be a good dog friend: out for walks and off leash playtime with other dogs, he's been social and playful. He seems to like females better and more tolerant, playful girlfriends. He did not test well with cats; so no cat siblings for this fancy eared boy. Home anyone???
