Let this charming, quirky girl get to know you and become your lifelong friend!

Babs was surrendered by her previous owners when a relative moved into the house and was allergic to her. She is wonderfully playful and particularly loves her "bird-on-a-string" feather toy, and is not shy about showing it off! When around her favorite toy, she will go into an affectionate frenzy, rolling around, showing off her belly, and rubbing herself on her toy, your legs, and everything around you. She also loves treats!

Earl is the sweetest cat around and is estimated to be about 7 years old. He enjoys gazing out the window and sleeping at the foot of your bed. He loves nothing more than to get head and chin scratches and if you scratch his upper shoulders you’ll get to hear his nice low rumble of a purr that doesn't stop! Once you get Earl purring from pets and scratches he will usually beg for more! He is a great companion for someone who likes a cat who is always lounging near by, but not always on your lap. He is affectionate and when he wants your attention he will come to you, but also he takes much content in just being in the room with you. He also enjoys being brushed and the Furminator is his favorite.

Meet Willow! She's a downy-soft glamour-girl with extra toes and a smidge of cattitude. Her whiskey-smoked meow and big green eyes will sweep you off your feet. She'll greet you with purrs and bump her head into your arm for pats. Willow adores attention—in fact a little worship would be just fine with her! But don't take this princess for granted! If she's had enough, she'll raise a paw as a little reminder of who is the royalty around here. Give her a bit of space, and she's ready for more love and coos. Willow gladly accepts offerings, especially catnip and yummies in little cans. She's inquisitive and sociable, and would adore a kingdom of her own with many cozy cushions and a servant or two at her beck and mew.

Little Nigel is available for adoption! This tiny, 8 lb. guy is a bit on the shy side. Having lived with one family for all of his 3 years, he is a bit of a scaredy-dog when it comes to new things. 

When he first came into his foster home, he would hide under the table or in his bed in a crate. Within 2 days though he was venturing out and hopping up into his foster mom's lap for naps or into his foster dad's arms to be carried around.

When new people visit, he chooses to run upstairs and observe from afar.

My name is Mason and I am a happy, energetic 6 year old, 68 lb. neutered, goofy and loving male Redbone Coonhound mix. I am content to spend most of my days snoozing on my cot or lounging out in the sun, but I also love nightly back rubs and attention from my humans. 

Unfortunately, when I was just a puppy, I had to be rescued from an abusive situation that arose when my first human discovered that even though I look like a hunting dog, I’m not actually very good at sniffing out prey, so I can sometimes be wary around some (but not all) men. But give me a treat and I promise to warm up to you and trust you completely. Even though I can’t smell them, I can see them and I LOVE chasing squirrels and chipmunks in the back yard. I would benefit most from a fenced in backyard since I will not hesitate to charge through an invisible fence. I also love taking walks through the neighborhood and in the woods as long as I’m on a leash. I’m very friendly and want to say hi to everyone we meet. Sometimes I catch a glimpse of something that looks fun to chase when out on a walk, but I am easily redirected and refocused on my walk.

Do you like big mutts? If so, I am your man! Weighing in at 85 lbs. I am the biggest lap dog you could ever hope to meet. Yep, you read that right. I just love to sit in my foster dad's lap. It was love at first sight for me. A good judge of character, I know what I want when it comes to family. A quiet home with experienced "big dog" people and no young uns would be perfect. Because I was not treated kindly in the past, I need time to feel safe and to establish trust before a lot of demands are placed upon me.
