You don’t need a special time of day to take in the beauty of this Sunset!

This handsome fella is a 1 year old male tabby. He enjoys lounging on the cat tree, giving little headbutts, and receiving pets. Sunset is the sweetest cat you’ll ever meet. Even at the vet he’s friendly and well behaved. He makes a great indoor cat because he loves playing with toys and rarely breaks the rules like getting on the counter. He enjoys cuddling and belly rubs. He’s extremely gentle when he plays and is great with kids. I think that he would prefer to be an only cat as he can be a bit territorial around other cats. He loves having his humans all to himself. 

We think Sunset would do well in a variety of homes including respectful dogs, and kind children but no other cats. Come catch a view of this guy before it gets dark, fill out our cat adoption application and adopt Sunset today! He would come home to you neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped for an adoption fee of $120.

Introducing Malachite, a 7 year-old Alaskan Malamute mix who’s beautiful both inside and out! Her shelter friends describe her as sweet, social, hilarious, goofy, and spunky — but not hyper!

Malachite is 80 pounds and loves playing fetch, really enjoy walks (often fielding many compliments on her beauty along the way), and she absolutely adores her stuffed toys. Since she’s a big girl and weighs in at 80 pounds, we recommend no toddlers as she may knock them over with her ample rump. Malachite is incredibly friendly and loves meeting new people. Malachite enjoy adventures and gets along with other dogs, but we wouldn’t recommend cohabitating with cats due her to excitable nature.

Malachite is known as the “Stone of Transformation” and is used for deep energy cleaning, bringing healing and positive transformation. This fur baby truly hopes that she can bestow those very qualities into your life, should she get the opportunity to! 

If Malachite made you perk up your ears, send a Dog Adoption Application our way to come meet this beautiful girl. She will join you spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped for an adoption fee of $550

Get ready for a fun and gentle day with Bane! Being with Bane is like being with a gentle giant. He loves all animals and creatures of all ages. He gets along with cats, puppies and children. Because he is 70lbs, we ask that he live in a home with children over 15, as he loves to put his weight on you to show you he wants affection.  He knows a lot of words and even understands complete sentences! 

Come meet Bane for yourself and he will win your heart in less than 5 minutes. He loves to be around people and go on any adventures you would like to take him on.

Finances have been tight in his foster home, so we haven’t been able to get neutered yet. His foster mom will charge a deposit of $250, and once you get him neutered it will be returned to you.
Email Shanice anytime to meet your forever friend! Shanice G.

Meet Mando – a playful and energetic 1.5 year-old male Siberian Husky , who weighs in at a sleek 51 pounds. If you are looking for an active play buddy, look no further! Mando really loves to play, and will even drop his tennis ball back directly in your hands to ensure that playtime is fully maximized. And at the end of the day you’ll find that he’s as skilled a cuddler as they come. His shelter friends describe him as perfect, angelic, and hyper, but you really ought to meet Mando yourself to decide!

Because Mando gets excited and is no small guy, kiddos should be out of the toddler phase. As for felines, they make him a little excited too, but we think he could cohabitate with dog-savvy cats. Mando will also need to go to a house that has a fenced yard, and because he is under 2 years old, positive reinforcement puppy classes are required.

If Mando sounds like your guy, send a Dog Adoption Application our way to come meet this spirited guy. He will join your crew neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped for an adoption fee of $550

She may be named after the night, but she’s destined to light up your life!

This fantastic feline is Eve, a 7 year old, female, domestic shorthair. She has a sleek coat, and a gentle disposition. She enjoys playing with toys, and taking a cat nap wherever she can find a cozy spot (especially if that spot is your lap, she’s a big cuddler!) Eve is on a weight-loss journey right now, and needs a family that will take her health and diet seriously.

We think Eve would do well in a house with other cats, kids, and even a respectful pup. If you think that Eve is the girl for you, fill out our cat adoption application today! She will join your home spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated for an adoption fee of $120.

Saul is high energy and playful. He’s got a laid back demeanor but is affectionate when he’s in the right mood 🙂 He’s super lively and animated but he’s a bit of a counter surfer so we’ve been working on that habit. He’s about 4 years old and quite the stunner, just look at those peepers!
He likes to climb a lot but doesn’t scratch at furniture. He’s very sweet and his foster family is completely obsessed with him. 
He’s the best boy!

Looking for an easy fix to all of your IT problems? Hire (adopt) Rosamund for your small business today!

Rosamund is our longest tenured resident here at the shelter, and has taken advantage of her time by learning a variety of trade skills. She is an expert at sitting on your keyboard during busy hours, but can also be put to work watching bird videos on a tablet when things are slow. She has even started apprenticing as an electrician, rooting around in a weird hole full of wires. She is only 7 years old too, so she has plenty of time to learn more skills on the job!

She tolerates the company of other felines, and seems comfortable and curious around calm dogs, but would prefer a home without any young children (12+). Ready for easy living, warm snuggles, and cozy couches. She will come to you microchipped, spayed, and vaccinated. If this sounds like the kitty for you, please fill out an application to set up a meet and greet.

You really ought to meet this little lady! This dappled dear, Oleta, is a 13 year old female. Oleta is small chihuahua mix and appreciate the cozy things in life, cream cheese, and socializing with her favorite people. She came to us with her brother, but we soon discovered they preferred to flourish on their own! 

For her next era, Oleta would thrive in a house with doting adults, but no dogs or kids for this doll. She’ll join your crew vaccinated, microchipped, spayed, and fresh breath for a total adoption fee of $400. If this lady matches your vibe, send a Dog Adoption Application our way to schedule a meet and greet!
