3 year old brown brindle plot hound mix

Massimo we estimate is about 3 years old and is a brown brindle plot hound mix, neutered male. Massimo is not just a good boy, he’s the greatest! This outdoorsy pup is the biggest fan of toys and treats that you’ll ever meet. Massimo is also housetrained and is working on his good manners with “sit” and “place” commands. Also known as the master of the “puppy dog eyes”! We are recommending a home without children.


5 year old German Shepherd mix

Enzo we estimate is about 5 years old and is a black and tan German Shepherd mix, neutered male. Enzo is shy around new people at first, but once he gets to know you he will open up and even ask for some pets. His favorite thing to do outside is play fetch!





2 year old boxer mix

Milo we estimate is about 2 years old and is a black and white boxer mix, neutered male. Milo is a great dog with a fun personality. He would benefit from our FREE training program. Recommend a home with no cats or young children.



4 year old Labrador retriever mix

Heathcliff we estimate is about 4 years old and is a tan Labrador retriever mix, neutered male. Heathcliff is a sensitive boy who needs a moment (and maybe some cookies) to learn that you’re a new awesome friend! He loves to spend time playing with tennis balls with the volunteers out in the yard!

He did GREAT and is now ready to bring love to his new family!


8 year old female
Fushia is a beautiful 8 year old female kitty with medium-length fur. She was adopted from our shelter 5 years ago, but sadly her owner had to move out of the country and could not take her with. Fushia does great with other cats and would do well with kids too (dogs unknown). She LOVES receiving attention and is just an awesome cat. Consider adding Fushia to your home, you won’t regret it!


3 year old male orange tabby

Nacho is a lovable 3 year old male orange tabby. He enjoys hanging out in our kitty kottage with other cats and is the “King of the Kottage”. Nacho may need a little time to adjust in his new home, but will quickly warm up and be your cuddly companion. Nacho deserves a loving home to call his own, consider meeting him at our shelter.
