9/1/2017
Age: Adult Female
Breed: Cat
I am currently caring for a stray cat who has 5 kittens around 5-7 days old. The mother is very sweet and maternal to her kittens who all seem very healthy. I have been searching for a shelter who could take them in but everywhere is full. I am desperate to find a caring place for them to go as I can not continue care much longer due to vet bills. This is a very low maintenance job and these loving animals need a safe temporary/permanent home!

Copper

9/1/2017
Age: Young Male
Breed: Belgian Malinois
It is with heavy hearts that by boyfriend and I are reaching out for Copper. He is a 1 and a half year old Belgian Malinois full of friendly energy. Unfortunately, with our new schedules, Copper is not receiving the attention he needs. He needs lots of exercise and plenty of room to run as he is SO high energy. He would never hurt a fly and is good with other dogs. Though he cannot be trusted to be left outside of his kennel when we are not home, which is slowly increasing to 12 hrs/day.

Jenny

9/28/2017
Age: Adult Female
Breed: Black Manx
Super sweet female, approximately 1-year old, 9 lb, petite, solid
black manx kitty showed up (lost or dumped) in our neighborhood
in June. She is now spayed, rabies tested and vaccinated, has had
all her shots and flea treatment. She’s ready for a forever home.
She’s a talker, a lap sitter and will follow you from room to room
just to be near. She likes and does really well with big calm dogs
but not so great with other cats (or maybe just slow to adapt). She
seems to have been well cared for in the past and has very quickly
adapted to being an indoor-only kitty. She seems to have no desire
to go outside anymore …she definitely needs to remain an indoor
kitty.

Archer

10/6/2017
Age: Young Male
Breed: German Shepherd
Archer is a great dog with a lot of energy. He definitely needs space to run around and love and attention. I am unable to provide him a backyard with space to run. I live in a small condo and because of my jobs he’s unable to get out and roam a lot during the day. I also have a cat and she is very afraid of Archer. This is my main concern for why I cannot keep him. I have had my car for many years and her being uncomfortable really makes it hard for me to keep Archer.

Josie

10/15/2017
Age: Young Female
Breed: Anatolian Shepherd
Josie is a very friendly and gentle dog, and she does well with kids. She is off to a good start of becoming a livestock guardian. Unfortunately she began attacking our free ranging poultry. She would most likely do a great job if you have sheep or goats to protect, but at this point she’s not a good mix for poultry. She stays outside all the time. She’s still growing, but we don’t think she’ll be as large as a typical Anatolian female, probably between 80-100 lbs.

Opal

10/15/2017
Age: Young Female
Breed: Tabby
Some issues that have made people apprehensive on adopting her is that she is not particularly fond of being held or getting her nails cut. She likes to scratch the corners of sofas and she also sheds quite a bit of fur. If someone could look past these minor flaws, they can see that Opal is a lover. She likes to sit in your lap anywhere you sit down. She loves being scratched behind the ears but doesn’t like it if you scratch anywhere on her back. She also doesn’t like to be around other pets.
