IMG_6296Tiggy needs a home! This little guy is so snuggly and loves to cuddle. That is his top priority. Tiggy likes to go with his people and rides well in the car. This little guy listens well and has great recall. Tiggy does not care for children – he seems to feel they are something to be feared and one must protect oneself before something terrible happens. We are not sure what goes on in Tiggy’s little head when it comes to kids but we will grant him that wish and find him a kid-free home. Tiggy lives in a home with other dogs and does well with that. He is a little bit rude to the large dog – maybe the large dog looks like a child. We are not sure! Tiggy does not seem overly fond of cats but is making it work in his foster home. Tiggy is 4 years old, house-trained with a doggy door but seems to have a desire to mark his territory here and there. We are not sure if this would be better in a home with fewer dogs. If you are interested in adopting Tiggy, please let us know! Dog applications are right! Just click on the adoption applications tab!

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!
IMG_7841 IMG_7871Dandee and Dino are beautiful friends who would like to travel on to their forever home together. Two peas in a pod, they are. Dandee (cream color) and Dino (black and tan) are 12-year old Chihuahuas that find themselves without a home. They are very sweet and loving dogs. Both love to go outside, take a walk and bask in the sunshine. They love all things cuddly and cozy and hope for plenty of love. Dino has just had a dental. Both are vet checked and in good health. If you are interested in bringing home these two dogs, please let us know!
