Frosty

7/20/2017
Age: Adult Female
Breed: Tabby
Frosty is an indoor/outdoor cat. She is litter box trained. She is super sweet and friendly. We’ve raised her since she was a kitten so she loves children. She’s beautiful cat. she’s gotten used to taking a bath. So she doesn’t throw too much of a fit when she gets one. She likes to play a lot especially with strings and balls or feathers, she also likes to wrestle a little bit if you get her going. The only reason I have to get rid of her is because I’m severely allergic and she knows it too.

Athena

7/21/2017
Age: Adult Female
Breed: Labrador Retriever
Athena loves to bring you a gift when she greets you. She’ll find a random bone or toy before she asks for hugs. She is great with kids but she does not like water.
She is up for adoption because she deserves to have more family time. We are rarely home due to work and our kids have gone off to college. She loves to fetch and go for walks. We would prefer her and Zeus get adopted together as they were raised together. She can get anxious being left alone for long periods & will chew a hot spot. Spayed. Up to date on vaccinations.

Zeus

7/21/2017
Age: Adult Male
Breed: Labrador Retriever
Zues is a loving and gentle chocolate labrador retreiver. He is super sweet, great with kids and loves to swim.
He is up for adoption because he deserves to have more time playing with his family and he is highly allergic to something specific to our new home – causing him to itch pretty badly. We believe the allergy is something related to the chemicals they use on the nearby golf course, it only started when we moved and seemed to ease up over the winter. When he is boarded, it is better. Neutered. Up to date on vaccinations.

Blue

7/28/2017
Age: Adult Male
Breed: Pitbull
Blue is in need of a loving forever home because his current owners have a new baby on the way and prefer to not have both a brand new baby and an energetic dog at the same time. Blue loves to run, play outside, take long walks, and loves attention! He was not raised with another dog, however, he does get along well with other dogs. He does well with kids and is very friendly, he just can be quite large for little kids. He is well mannered, house trained, and acts like a lap dog!

Pancake

Pants

7/30/2017
Age: Young Male
Breed: Bunny
Pants is a very loving bunny. He was the runt of his litter and has been handled his entire life. He is not neutered so he does become aggressive around other male bunnies. Pants would do well in a home with a female bunny that is fixed and if he gets neutered then he will do well with males. Pants is well loved and we are sad to see him go but we know he will win the heart of every possible adopter that comes into contact with him.

Gracie’s 1 year Birthday was Aug17. We have had her from 8 wks old. Our landlords were ok with her as a puppy but have become intimidated by her size. She is very loving and playful. She has learned sit and lay, also we take her on walks so she is used to a leash. Loves the water, she’s good with our chihuahua and beagle. She loves to eat pickles! We want her to go to a home where she can continue to be an inside dog, have a fenced in yard and be taken on walks, preferably with someone who has experience.
