Pets of the Week

Dog of the Week

ANGEL

Estimated Date of Birth: 12/11/2018

Female Basenji  Mix

Sweet, playful Angel is a very special girl! She is not the brightest puppy but her personality shines. She had a brain infection as a baby, which affected her eye sight and ability for critical thinking. She just wants to be loved and act goofy, but because of her disability, she can be fearful of strangers. Angel is looking for an experienced home with no kids or other pets, and lots of patience to earn her trust and love. She is looking for an adopter OR local foster.

Critter of the Week

ARLINGTON

Estimated Date of Birth: 1/19/2024

Female Dwarf Hamster

Arlington is a speedy, active hamster looking for a loving home! She was already adopted and then returned after her family lost interest, so she is ready for a Forever Home. If you like watching a cute baby explore, burrow, scamper, and stuff her cheeks, race on over to fill out an application for this cutie!

Cat of the Week

TENZIN

Estimated Date of Birth: 1/25/2024

Male DSH

Snugglebug Tenzin is silly, friendly, and adorable. He enjoys cuddling and being around his people. Tenzin is in foster with dogs, cats, and gentle kids.

One of my favorite thrift stores. I get great deals on yarn, fabric, craft supplies and tennis balls for my dogs. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. After being a shopper for many years, I started fostering and have adopted a hamster and two cats. An all around great organization for a fantastic cause.
