Adoptable Critters


Tufts

Tufts

Tufts is a friendly lap cat boy and a real "people cat". He loves to be pet adn if very affectionate. Tufts is looking for a loving, indoor home. Tufts is about 5 years old.


Chance

Chance

Chance is about 3 years old and came in as a stray. The staff named him Chance because when he came to the shelter, he only weighed about 39 lbs and now he weighs almost 50 lbs. He's a friendly boy who is affectionate. He loves to chase tennis balls, but is not sure what to do with them once he gets to them. We gave him his second chance, now it's your turn to give him a home!


Jasper

Jasper

Jasper is a big, goofy adolescent dog who's still learning.  He knows the "sit" command and we're working with him on "fetch", but he's not the most coordinated dog sometimes.  Still, he seems to have a lot of fun!   One of our volunteers describes him as a "goofy, bouncey teenager. If you've got the time to work with him, he might be a great addition to your house!


Peety

Peety

Peety is about 4 years old and loves to chase after tennis balls. He's learning that if he brings it back that we will throw it again. He loves treats too, but seems to like tennis balls more.
