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.

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.

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.

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!

Dandy is a strikingly handsome 1 - 2 year old boy who needs a special home.

Dandy was taken from a hoarder home where he was living with 68 cats. Though amazingly healthy for being around so many other cats, he was undersocialized to people. He has spent many months in his foster home learning how to trust. His new home will need to continue to work with him to teach him how great people are.

Bella is a very beautiful, shy, 1 - 2 year old calico. She is a gentle soul and will need a special human friend to accommodate her quirks and give her time to warm up. She is very sweet and likes attention, but is also very sensitive. When she gets scared, she buries her head in her blankies.

Dorothy is a beautiful girl, 1 - 2 years old, who is looking for an understanding home.

As 1 of 68 cats taken from a hoarding situation, Dorothy was undersocialized to people when she first came to us several months ago. With time and patience, Dorothy has blossomed into a sweet, affectionate girl. Dorothy needs a home that will give her plenty of time to adjust and come out of her shell. She will reward your persistence and patience with complete love. Dorothy is currently living with Dandy in her foster home and she would love to be adopted with him. She would do very well in a home with another friendly cat to help show her the ropes.
