Roxie & Bella

1/7/2020
Age:
2y/o
Breed: Black lab mix
They are two sisters, same litter. We rescued in Aug ‘18 at age 4 1/2 months. They had been horribly neglected/abused. They were emancipated, ring worms, etc. They are sweet, smart dogs. However, after months of getting along fine with other family pets they showed extreme aggression towards the smaller dogs and Christmas Day they violently fought with each other over a bone (had each been given their own). They need separate homes without children and other animals.

Nala

Age:
Young

Nala was found by a dumpster with her two kittens. She was obviously abandoned because she is very loving and friendly with people.
I have been able to find homes for the two kittens but I cannot find one for the Nala. We would keep her ourselves but we already have 4 of our own. If you would be willing to take her I will gladly pay for her to be spayed as well as get her vaccinations up-to-date. I just want her to have a good home

Elliot

He is shy but treats, head rubs and patience will get him to warm up to you. His specialty is lounging around the house in strange and amusing poses. Elliot is a sweet boy!

Penelope is sweet and loving. She gets along with other animals. She has allergies we believe and seems kind of miserable most of the time if she doesnt stay on Benedryl.

Mao Mao

1/28/2020
Age: 
9 y/o
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
My beloved cat is distressed due to moving from a large quiet home to a noisy loft apartment. He has anxiety about all of the noise. I found him in a park in Shanghai, China when he was just weeks old with no stripes and he was raised with a golden retriever so he has many adorable dog like behaviors. He is a very, very, very cool cat when not stressed. He has no front claws, 1/2 a tail and only 2 teeth but can still catch critters! He’s amazing.  He also puts himself into yoga positions often (I am a yoga teacher) which is hilarious and he’s super affectionate and so sweet.

**I would also be interested in having him fostered until I can move back into a quiet home.

Hello! My name is Bruno, I am believed to be about 7 years old! My current owners have had me for 5 years and they love me very much! I get along with other dogs but I’m not sure about cats. I’m not very fond of children so a family with older children or no children would be best! I have a slight sensitive stomach but I eat Salmon dog food from walmart and that helps me a lot. I am kennel trained, potty trained, and very quiet; i hardly ever bark! Please call my mom if you want to meet me!

Missy & Sissy

2/4/2020
Age:
Adult
Breed:
Lab mix
We are looking to rehome our 2 dogs due to family matters. Missy and Sissy are sisters. They have been together since birth. Sissy is a loving, caring, couch potato dog. She is energetic and very playful. While at the sametime a sweetheart. Sissy just wants to be near you and loved. Missy is independent, outgoing, couch potato too. Missy is more so a couch potato than her sister. All it takes is a play in the back yard and she is good for a min. Don’t be fooled though Missy is very smart. They are both kennel trained, and treat orientated. They do great with children and people alike. They get overly excited when meeting new people, and calm down after a few minutes. They also would need to be the only pets in the house if taken together.

Adult
Breed:
Yorkshire Terrier
Our recent rescue came to us w/o a lot of history. In the 3 weeks we’ve had her we discovered her fear of men. We did find out she was a ‘breeder’ Yorkie and really wasn’t out of a cage much. While she has improved greatly in many ways, her fear of men and strangers is obvious. She is not food aggressive. We know if she gets along with other dogs or cats. She is very gentle and loving with me (female owner) but is sorely afraid of my gentle/kind husband and snapped at him once and barks.
