Ava10-month-old Retriever mix
Ava is a 10-month-old Retriever mix weighing 53 pounds. Her original name was Ultra when she was adopted at 4 months of age. She was just returned because she “had too much energy”. She does have a food allergy to chicken so she has to be fed beef, salmon or anything other than chicken. The owners were feeding her chicken so she did have a skin allergy which she is recovering from. She gets along with the other dogs but has not been cat or child-tested. Her adoption donation is $300 which includes her spay, vaccinations, microchip. She is very frightened and confused. She never did anything wrong and doesn’t know why she is back.
Bodhi9-year-old Border Collie/Corgi
Bodhi is a 9-year-old Border Collie/Corgi mix weighing approximately 35 pounds. This poor boy was kept in an outdoor kennel for over 2 years. He finally was adopted only to have the adopter lose her home and he ended up back but this time on death row. We rescued him at the 11th hour. Understandably he doesn’t totally trust people until he feels comfortable with them. The adopter said that he was lovable, happy and friendly and would even sit on the couch with her and watch TV. He has gotten better adjusted and is happy to be living indoors. His adoption donation is $150 which includes his neuter, vaccinations, microchip. He is heartworm negative and on monthly prevention.
RC5-year-old Beagle mix
RC (Really Cute “and sweet”) is a 5-year-old Beagle mix weighing approximately 24 pounds. She is a happy, active, lovable girl who loves toys. You will see her walking around with a toy in her mouth constantly and she Is not above “stealing” them from another dog. She is not completely leash trained so she does need a fenced yard. She gets along with the other dogs but has not been cat or child tested. Her adoption donation is $300 which includes her spay, vaccinations, microchip. Please come to meet this Really Cute girl
Coco and Flocko3-yr-old Dachshund/Hound mix
Coco and Flocko are bonded 14-yr-old Poodle mix brothers. They were brought to animal services when their owner passed away and there was no one to care for them. They have not been neutered and have a vet appointment to determine if they are healthy enough. They are super mellow and easy to care for. They are looking for a forever home to live out their lives, so if you can open your hearts and home to them, we and they will be so grateful.
