IMG_6569This old man needs a home! It is not his fault that he finds himself without a loving and forever home in his golden years. Roger is 13 years old and he has a heart of gold. This guy is so sweet he will melt your heart with one tail wag. Roger’s person has passed away and he was unable to find a warm and caring home to take care of him. Helping Hands stepped in and we are now searching for the right match for this guy. He loves people, he loves kids (that will be gentle with his old bones) and he seems to do just fine with other dogs. We are not sure about cats but we don’t think he would give any critters much trouble. Roger is old and that comes with some creaks and groans. Stairs are hard for this guy and so is that slick floor. He would love a home with no stairs and carpet would be fabulous. We had blood work done and we are told he is in good health. Roger might not have a lot of years left in him but we would certainly like to provide him with the love and care he deserves while he is still here with us. Roger is neutered, vaccinated and appears to have good house manners. If you are interested in adopting Roger, please let us know. You will not regret it!

20170120_132542Nicole is such a sweet kitty with a real dislike of adoption events. We are hoping to find this pretty girl a home without her ever having to experience the stress of another Petco-day. Her foster Mom tells us she is very loving and affectionate and will make a wonderful companion. She would prefer a quieter home – not a ton of ruckus. Nicole is about 1 year old, has been a Mama and is fine with living with other cats. She is now spayed and vaccinated and ready for her forever home!

¬†Nova is a special needs Chi with a sweet heart and a lovely disposition. Nova has img_3982Hydrocephalus – a condition that affects Nova’s brain. Her symptoms are not as severe as some we have seen but she does exhibit a “spinning” symptom. She acts as if she gets a dizzy spell, spins and straightens herself out. Nova is 2 years old and loves to go for walks and rides in the car. She is currently living in a foster home with other dogs and cats and all is well. Her foster Mom is working on house-training. If you are interested in adopting Nova, please fill out an adoption application¬†above. Thanks!
loca1Loca is a precious 2 year old chihuahua who is deaf. She is looking for a home with not too much activity and someone who has time to spend with her and love her. She wants to be right by your side. Loca is very leery of strangers, but will warm up in time. Loca is house trained, spayed and vaccinated. If you’d like to give this sweet, special needs, dog a home, please fill out an application above. Thanks!
