Charming Bean, a mixed breed dog, is eagerly seeking a loving dream home. At just 2 years old and weighing a sprightly 48 pounds, Bean possesses an irresistible combination of youthfulness and cuddliness. While initially a little shy, Bean's heart overflows with warmth once he forms a bond with you. This lovable pup craves affection and is known to be a true cuddle enthusiast.
Bean would like to be in a home without other animals or any children under the age of 13.
If you're searching for a loyal companion who will shower you with unwavering love once trust is established, Bean is the perfect furry friend to make your life complete.
Meet Bolt, a lively and energetic Patterdale Terrier. This little diva is full of life and loves nothing more than being the center of attention. Bolt has a larger-than-life personality and he's sure to charm anyone who meets him.
Although Bolt enjoys playing and interacting with humans, he would need to be the only pet in the household as he likes to have all the attention for himself. Bolt loves to play games like tug-of-war and keep away, and he's always willing to work for a treat. He especially loves nose work and puzzles games. He would do great in an active home with plenty of opportunities for exercise, such as hiking, running, and agility training.
As a headstrong breed, Bolt will need an experienced owner who can provide him with the necessary patience, understanding, and ongoing training he needs and deserves. Bolt is always eager to please and loves to learn new commands and tricks. He's been working hard with our staff to overcome his reactivity, and has made significant progress.
Bolt would make a loyal and loving companion to anyone who is willing to give him a chance. If you're looking for a dog with plenty of personality and energy, Bolt might just be the perfect match for you!
Introducing Gia, the adorable 8-year-old Akita and English Bulldog mix with an irresistible underbite. With her unique blend of breeds, Gia is a 55-pound bundle of joy.
Gia's ideal home would be one where she can shine as the only pet, allowing her to bask in the undivided attention and love of her new family. Because of her size and strength, we are recommending a home with children aged 12 and above, making her an excellent choice for families with older kids.
Gia’s loyalty is also in keeping with her breed, and she will be a devoted and vigilant companion, always ready to keep her loved ones safe.
If you're seeking an extraordinary canine companion with a heart full of love, Gia is eagerly waiting to become a cherished member of your family.
Lucas is a dashing 4-year-old tuxedo cat who’s been through a lot and is now looking for his dream home with a loving human. Lucas may be a bit shy at first, but once he warms up to you, he becomes your best friend. Treats and catnip are the easiest way to his heart. He loves greeting the humans he knows best with chirps in the morning before breakfast.
Lucas would be happiest in a home with feline friends to hang out with and keep him company.
He loves attention when he is feeling confident/comfortable and is excited to find a new home where he can finally relax and be himself. If you are searching for a charming and playful feline companion, Lucas is the cat for you!

Rescued from a crowded home overflowing with feline companions, Sandy longs for a place where she can bask in the undivided attention she deserves. Her playful nature knows no bounds, as she finds joy in exploring every nook and cranny, always keeping her new family entertained with her boundless energy.
Sandy's heart brims with affection not only for her human companions but also for her fellow furry friends. She thrives in the company of other cats, making her an ideal choice for households with existing feline members.
With her loving disposition and zest for life, Sandy's sure to bring endless happiness to your home. Adopt Sandy today and watch your world light up with her playful charm.
Meet Sophie, the beautiful 10-year-old tortie female cat brimming with affection and warmth. A true lovebug at heart, Sophie's greatest joy comes from being petted and snuggled. Her endearing personality is matched only by her striking coat, a stunning tapestry of colors that mirrors her vibrant spirit.
Though Sophie carries the weight of FeLV, a chronic condition that can be contagious to fellow felines, she remains an unwavering optimist. This spirited cat, full of life, has much to give and receive in return. With proper care and attention, Sophie can enjoy a fulfilling and long life. She seeks a special home where she can be the sole feline queen or share her space with other FeLV companions.
Sophie's resilient spirit and undeniable charm make her a deserving candidate for a loving family who will treasure her just as she promises to treasure them. Embrace the opportunity to provide Sophie the chance she so richly deserves.

Her sweet nature shines through as she engages in playful antics, always ready to bring joy to those around her. Whether she's happily munching on fresh vegetables or exploring her surroundings, Lucy radiates happiness and contentment.
