3 year old male

Meet Moe! He is a handsome 3 year old male kitty. Moe is very friendly and does great with other cats. He had Stomatitis which is inflammation of the mouth. The only treatment is extraction of the teeth. He has had surgery which removed all but his canines. The surgery does not effect him and actually makes me alot more comfortable since he is no longer painful. Stop by our shelter to meet Moe!

3-yr-old Chihuahua

Veronica is a 3-yr-old Chihuahua weighing 7 lbs.  She is a miracle dog!  She came in as a stray, totally dehydrated, starved, full of fleas and with muscle wasting.  She had a pelvic fracture and a broken leg which is still dangling.  She walks perfectly on 3 legs but when she has recovered we will have the leg removed.  She also had a severe hernia which has been repaired and she has heartworms.  They originally thought she was going to make it, but she is a fighter and she is now thriving.  She is an absolute love.  She is always wagging her tail and wanting attention.  Due to the severity of her condition, we will be doing slow kill for the heartworm treatment.  Her adoption donation is $350 which includes her spay, hernia repair, vaccinations, heartworm treatment and microchip.


3-yr-old female Terrier/Chihuahua

London is a 3-yr-old female Terrier/Chihuahua mix weighing 6 pounds.  She was picked up as a stray from animal services.  She had a microchip but the owner never claimed her which is their loss.  She is the sweetest, most lovable girl ever!  She loves to play with her toys.  She wants you to play with her, but she won’t let you take them – lol.  She is best as an only pet because she wants all the attention.  Animal services thought she may have been hit by a car but she has no injuries whatsoever.  She is a frisky, happy, lovable girl.  Her adoption donation is $350 which includes her spay, vaccinations, microchip.


3yr-old girl Min Pin/Lancaster Healer

Onyx is a 3yr-old girl Min Pin/Lancaster Healer weighing approximately 13 lbs.  She is a sweet and loving dog who is looking for her forever home.  Onyx was adopted once but was returned because she became protective of her new mother.  She would be best in a single person home with no other pets.  Onyx is house-trained and walks well on a leash.  She loves to play in the yard and go for walks.  She is also very food motivated! Her adoption donation is $250 which includes her spay, vaccinations, microchip.  She is heartworm negative and on monthly prevention.


1yr old Belgian Shephard & Dutch Shepherd mix

Shiloh is a 1yr old Belgian Shephard & Dutch Shepherd mix. He weighs approximately 28 lbs. He is a friendly, happy, energetic boy who loves everyone he meets. He is a little thin so he does have to gain some weight but he’s working on it! He loves attention and will dance to get it. He walks well on a leash and gets along well with the other dogs. He has not been cat or child tested. He came from a high-kill shelter and is looking for his Forever Home so please come to meet this handsome boy!
