Anna is a gorgeous dilute calico kitty who is looking for a home to enjoy her golden years in. Anna was born in December 2004 and she is a fun, sassy cat. She loves bird watching and climbing cat trees, so a home with a window for her to perch in and a nice cat tree would make her a very happy kitty. Anna would purrfer to be an only pet and would do best in a home with just adults or maybe adults and teens. She came to the shelter because another cat picked on her, and we think that experience has caused her to be leery of other animals.
Jessie is a single lady looking to be your only pet. She is a very friendly beagle/lab mix who weighs 43 pounds. She has a lot of love to give and a big personality. Jessie was born in 2012. Sit, shake, beg, roll over, and down are some of her moves! Jessie is uncomfortable around kids so does need a home with just adults or adults and teens, and needs a fenced in yard. In classic beagle style, she LOVES treats and roaming.
We love Columbus! He's a big boy full of attitude. He was born in 2012. He really enjoys attention and would love to have a person of his own to hang out with. We believe he would purrfer to be an only kitty or to leave with another cat who likes their own space, too.
Braxton was very stressed when he arrived at our shelter, and needs a confident, kind, and patient owner to adopt him. He has had some formal obedience training and knows some tricks! He is a Chihuahua mix born in 2015. Braxton is a protective dog and once he knows you he is very lovable. He is OK with cats according to his past owner, but not kids, and we are unsure about other dogs.
Sasha is a bundle of playful energy and very friendly. She was born in September 2015 and is a red and white pit bull mix. Sasha needs a home without cats and might do best as an only dog. She'd love to live with active adults, and maybe a teenager to play with, too.
Sarah is a volunteer success story. She was so scared when she first came in but after volunteers spent some good TLC time with her, she's become more comfortable being here. She needs a patient adopter willing to give her time to warm up to them. Sarah was born in 2014.
