IMG951123Bella and Cissy are looking for a forever home. They are siblings and quite bonded. They are 1.5 years old (2 in December), spayed, house-trained, kennel-trained, great with kids, indifferent to cats and are sweet and playful dogs. They have not been around a lot of other dogs other than each other. As you can see, they are well loved family dogs. A military move is forcing their separation from their family and we would like to help these pups find a new home. If you are interested in learning more about these two dogs, please contact us.


Cats and kittens looking for forever homes! Cat and kitten adoptions are $60. That includes cat IMG_3846vaccines and the spay/neuter. That is a very good price and you don’t have to worry about those important things! If the kitten is too young for the spay/neuter, we will still take care of it when they are old enough at one of our vets in town. Please contact us if you are looking for a forever friend!

IMG_4677This handsome Cocker Spaniel is looking for a forever home. He is a very happy dog that would like an active family to take him for long walks, play with him and make him part of the pack. We are recommending an adult home. He is 7 years old, neutered, vaccinated and good with other dogs. Cats are OK if they are dog-savvy but kitties that run will be chased. Please let us know if you would like to learn more about this dog. Thank you!

IMG_3575Taco is a very fun and active little guy who likes to play with toys and chase a ball. Taco is not a huge fan of the big dogs (feels like he has to be the tough guy), but he is fine with the other small dogs and cats in his foster home. Taco is 3-1/2 years old, house trained, neutered and vaccinated.


 IMG_3850Apollo is a handsome yellow lab looking for a forever home! He is a big boy with a goofy and loving personality. He is so happy when you talk to him and he wants nothing more than to be your forever friend. Apollo has been an outdoor dog his entire life but we are hoping to find him an indoor/outdoor home that will take him for walks, throw the stick for him and take him to the river. Apollo is 4-5 years old, neutered and vaccinated. Please let us know if Apollo is the forever dog for you!

10360189_743595422370514_4695750446271711740_nRaja needs a home. She was adopted through us but it has not worked out in her home and so we are trying to find her a better situation. Raja is an Australian Shepherd cross and is smart and active. Raja loves her people and is currently living with an older child. She is fine with big dogs but will chase small dogs and cats. Raja would love an active family with a fenced yard and no small pets. She has great house manners and can be trusted to be left alone in a home when her people are away. Raja is 2 years old, spayed, vaccinated, dog-door trained and house trained. Please let us know if Raja is the forever dog for you!


IMG_3836Lucky is a very sweet boy. His story is not a very lucky one but despite his hardships, he has continued to be a very kind and loving boy. Lucky was found as a stray on the highway and had injuries that appeared to be sustained from jumping out of a moving vehicle or possible being hit by a vehicle. We will never really know what happened to him. By the time he was taken into our care, his injuries had healed in the best way his body could manage. We brought Lucky to WSU and had him evaluated by their team. Lucky’s front left leg has healed incorrectly and, unfortunately, repairing the elbow does not appear to be an option. Lucky can walk on the leg but has limited range of motion and has some pain in that leg. His pain is currently being managed by pain supplements and joint supplements for arthritis. Lucky likes to go for walks but tires easily so will be prescribed limited exercise for the rest of his days. If his pain were to become worse and not manageable by medication, WSU did suggest amputation of the front left leg. It was not recommended at this time – only if his condition worsens. Lucky is in a foster home with other dogs and his foster mom describes him as incredibly good-natured dog. He just loves people. His foster people take him out and about to new situations quite a bit and he is just happy wherever he goes. He gets along well with the resident dogs. We do not know about cats but believe he would chase a cat that runs. Lucky is about 2 years old, house-trained, neutered and vaccinated. Lucky is looking for a loving home that will continue to care for his needs and give him the love and joy he deserves.
