She can be timid, but once she gets to know you she’s a cuddle bug and is a major daddy’s girl or mamas girl. She will be 3 in June, shots are due later this year. Her favorite treats are bones, preferably raw beef shank with the bone in for later snacks.

Shelly

4/10/2018
Age: Adult Female
Breed: Shorthaired tortoise shell tabby
Shelly showed up in our front yard looking starved and hurt.
We took her to the vet and it seems that someone had abandoned her in our neighborhood.
She is chipped and we tried to track down the owner , but they never replied, so we kept her until we could find something suitable for her.
She is super sweet, friendly and loving.
We tried to integrate her into our mix of animals , but our female cats never warmed up to her.
She would be a perfect cat for someone with male cats or dogs.

Lacey

4/17/2018
Age: Adult Female
Breed: Tabby
She is a sweet loving kitty. She is very friendly to all. She has always been an indoor cat but spends time on our porch supervised. She has become very discontented staying inside and has started showing distress. We live on a very busy street so we are not able to provide her with what she needs. She usually stays on the porch when we are out with her but we are not home enough to give her many opportunities. She would prefer to be an inside/outside cat. She has two sisters that she gets along with but she prefers people over cats. She has never been around dogs. We adopted her as a kitten. She lives to play with toys we keep in a box or she plays and chases cat toys on a stick.

He gets a long great with dogs but unsure with other cats and children. He’s shy at first but once he gets to know you, he warms up and likes to be petted and follows you around.

Bo

4/25/2018
Age: Young Male
Breed: American Bulldog
Bo is 1 year and 7 months old. He is a neutered male who is uptodate on his vaccines. Bo is a great dog for a family with no small children and no other pets. He is house trained and is not destructive. He is lovable, protective, and likes to snuggle. He likes toys he can tear up and loves a good doggy treat. Bo’s one downfall is that he does not like other animals. He has recently attacked another dog and would need to be in a home with no other animals. He tolerates children, but does not like them. Bo is really a great dog, he just needs a safe space where he can be loved and taken care of.

Kitty

4/25/2018
Age: Young Male
Breed: DSH
Very young cat was found by friend in the engine area of their pick up truck when they pulled into my driveway. She was ok, but scared and crying. My friend could not take it in. I gave it food and shelter in our garage for a couple of months. Unfortunately, we cannot keep her. We have 2 shih tzus (one is an Alaqua rescue from 2017) She is extremely sweet and affectionate to everyone.. even towards our dogs. But our one dog will not accept her and it’s not working out. She may be about 6 to 8 months old. I do not know if she was spayed, but she does not seem to be pregnant. She could be a very good indoor or outdoor cat for anyone. Very pretty white (she is so clean) cat with black tail and ears. Please find a home for her.

Leonard and Peter are a bonded pair and are looking for a forever home together. Leonard is a girl (white), and Peter is a boy (brown). Peter has been neutered.

Keira and Kayla

Age: Adult Female
Breed: Long-hair Chihuahuas
Kiera is a Chocolate Tri-Color and was born Feb 12, 2006. Kayla is Black and White Tri-color and was born Dec 16 2006. Both are healthy, always kept up on their shots and I have records. They just got all their shots in March 2018 from the Walton County Animal Clinic in Defuniak Springs including a 3 year rabies and 6 month heartworm shot. They have been microchipped and they are very sweet dogs. Not aggressive in any way. I have had them since they were pups and I am hoping to find someone that can spend more time with them than I can. They stay cooped up in my camper all day. They have never been separated so I want them to stay together as a bonded pair.
