Hi! I'm Toffee! I'm a good boy! Wanna be my best friend? Too late! I've already decided! We're TOTALLY best friends. Hey, let's go for a walk! No wait- let's play tennis ball! Oooh, hang on- are those treats? Guess what?! I know how to SIT for treats! I'm really good at it. Hey, do you think you could teach me some more tricks? I'd love to learn! I'm smart and eager to please. Sometimes, I get excited just to see people and I forget my manners and jump! Can you blame me? I just REALLY love people! It doesn't take

Hey pal! Hey! Come on- don't pass me by without stopping to talk. That's better. Hey, let's start with the basics: My name is Sprocket, I'm two years old, and I'm looking for a home. How about you? Oh... you HAVE a home? That's... that's cool. Good for you. I don't suppose you have room in that home for, say, a strapping black-and-white feline? I mean, yes- I'm unemployed and I can't pay rent in a traditional way. But make no mistake: I still bring a LOT to the table. For one thing, you'll never be hurting for conversation with
My name is Chomper and I'm not the kind of dog whose world is just black and white. Where some dogs are brown-eyed or blue-eyed, I'm both. Where some dogs' coat colors are easy to describe, mine is... Blue? Tan? White? Merle? A little of each? It's not just that, though. For some dogs, life is good. People are great. That's all they've ever known and all they ever will know. And for some, people are scary and life is tough. For me... it's a little of both. I love people. I'm cuddly and affectionate and I really WANT to

Well! Hello there! I've seen a lot of people around these parts, but... none of them quite like you. You're incredible. My name is Matais, by the way. I'm about two years old and I need a new home. Thing is, I've been looking for someone special. That's why you caught my eye. Because I can't go to just ANY home. See, I have a condition called Feline Leukemia (FeLV). It's not as scary as it sounds- I'm a healthy boy who doesn't need any extra care or medication and I could stay that way my whole life. My FeLV
Heartworm disease is devastating. The treatment is vicious, painful, expensive, and takes months to complete. It's also completely preventable! A tasty and relatively inexpensive monthly chewable knocks those suckers right out before they can take hold. So you would think it wouldn't be very common, right? Unfortunately, it's not at all uncommon. We take in about a dozen heartworm positive dogs every year and make sure they get the treatment they need and deserve. Toffee was one of those dogs- found as a stray, Toffee was young, active, and apparently healthy. Whoever his former owners were, they likely never would
My name is Harley and I'm ready to have the BEST. SUMMER. EVER! You might not think I look like a summer girl and... well... yes and no. I mean, obviously, I'm a husky. We're snow dogs. But THIS summer is different. Because this is the summer I'm going to find my FOREVER HOME! I can't wait to see what kind of adventures I'll have! The holidays I'll celebrate! I'm 8 years old, but I've still got plenty of wonderful things ahead. I'm an excellent dog- great house manners, friendly with strangers (I'm not really sure about little eye-level kids, but bigger
I've been here ten whole months now and still, every time I'm out running around, someone is like, "oh my gosh WHO is that ADORABLE little round gray and white cat? I've never noticed her before!" Those in the know are like, "No tail? Big eyes? That's Red Queen!" Yep- that's me! Why do people not notice me? A few reasons. One is that, since I prefer not to be around other cats, I'm not out running around during the day with the whole group. And my house... well, it's cozy, but it's not exactly inviting. The other is the sign on
My name is Bones and I need your help. This is my "before" picture. It's what I looked like when I first came to the shelter. Yep, those sunken eyes, those long nails... they tell me I was badly neglected and mistreated for a long time and that the conditions I grew up in were not okay-, but to me, it just seemed normal. It was all I knew. Well, I've been in the shelter a couple of months now because I needed a lot of care to get healthy. And I don't look like this anymore! I'll show you my
