Cilantro was rescued by Pets Alive in June 2015 from a hoarding situation. She is a gorgeous long hair gal. She's a bit shy at first but once you get to know her, she just eats up the attention and could sit for hours and be petted. She's about one to two years old and ready for her forever home. Come and meet Cilantro and fall in love!

Trinity is a stunning 1 year old petite girl. She had a rough start to life. After getting pregnant at only 6 months old, Trinity had a bad reaction to the anesthetic used during her spay surgery - a 1 in 100,000 chance! Thankfully she was able to get spayed and is now in perfect health. She is a super affectionate snugglebug who is very active and loves to play. She was a wonderful mom to her 3 kittens, who have all been adopted, and now she is ready for a home of her own.

Hazel has been waiting nearly 1000 days for a forever home. Hazel is a sweet girl who is about three and a half years old. She's grown up at the shelter. She's very friendly and enjoys her time outside and her playtime. She needs a home without other animals and would do best with children 5 or older. She knows sit, down, come and stay. She walks beautifully on a leash and is very food motivated. Give her a chance at the life she deserves!
