Featured Dog

Hey there;-) I'm Truman, the hug happy, 2 1/2 year old lab mix.  If you're about 5' tall, I'm ready, willing, and able to look you in the eyes when I put my paws on your shoulders to give you a hug. I've been accused of being an over-hugger, but how can that be:-( Everyone needs a hug now and then:-0  Besides I've got hugs to spare;-) I get along with other dogs, but i think my size puts some potential furry friends off:-P I am kind of long and lanky. Kids are okay with me, but I like the durable ones. After all kids need hugs too. So come on over and see me. Let's go for a walk. I'll look into your eyes and you will not be able to resist my charm;-]

 

Featured Cat
 
 

Squeak, squeak, meow. That was me saying, "Howdy. How y'all doin?"  I'm a one year old American shorthair. I seem to be a little on the small size, but I do have energy to burn...when I want too.  My favorite times of day: feeding time...duh and the sunny times. I like to lay out on our enclosed patio and soak up the sun. I get along with other cats. I leave them alone and they leave me alone. I don't mind being held, but not for extended periods. Come on down and see me. Be sure to check the patio if you don't see me right away.

People with companion animals live longer and recover from illness faster than people who have none. Children with pets learn empathy and responsibility earlier than other children. Research suggests that those children handle family tragedy, such as divorce, better and may also have fewer problems with allergies.

What is the Adoption Process?

Our goal is to help you provide a great home for any of our available animals. If you are interested in adopting a dog or a cat, you can speak with one of our Adoption Specialists who will help you find an animal that fits you or your family. Once you select the pet you’d like to adopt, we will have you fill out a short questionnaire. After going over the adoption paperwork, if your survey/questionnaire is accepted, you fill out a adoption contract/agreement, pay the adoption fee and take the animal home with you that same day (most of the time).

* If you have other dogs in the house we do ask that you bring them up for a meet and greet to ensure the dogs get along.
* Apartment & Renting - must be approved also by the landlord, etc..

The goal is not to just adopt pets, it is to keep them adopted.


What is the right pet for me?

When choosing a dog, remember that good looks aren't everything. Long, happy relationships are the result of good compatibility. Our Adoption Specialists can help.

Consider Breed Tendency Regarding:

Compatibility Factors: Size, Coat Type, Activity Level, Excitability, Trainability, Sociability, Playfulness, Affection Demands, Barking, Aggressiveness.

Coat Type: Double-coat breeds (Shepherds, Huskys, Pomeranians, Akitas, St. Bernards) and short-coat breeds (Dobermans, Labradors, Dalmatians, Beagles) continuously shed, aggravating allergies, requiring brushing and home clean-up. Drop-coat breeds (Lhasa Apso, Maltese and Afghan, Terriers, Schnauzers and Poodles) are usually non-shedding but require weekly grooming time and/or expense.

Personality Factors: High barking levels for an indoor dog may be annoying but makes for a good watchdog. A playful or active dog may play a great game of catch but may also require regular, vigorous exercise to deter excessive barking, destructive chewing or unruly behavior. A highly trainable dog may house train quickly but may also get into mischief if not continually given training challenges. Aggression may contribute to watchdog temperament but can be a liability around children or strangers. Affectionate breeds are endearing but may bark or destroy more from separation anxiety. Every personality benefits from a puppy socialization class and/or dog obedience classes.
