Buddy is a four-year-old Sheperd/Lab mix looking for a “fur”ever home. His caretakers say he is a big teddy bear who enjoys belly and back rubs and is loving towards people. At more than 100 pounds, this big boy needs plenty of space and prefers to be with bigger dogs that are closer to his size. Buddy loves to go for walks and has never tried to jump a fence, not even a short fence. Buddy is neutered and ready for adoption. His intake number is 247360. Reference: picture: Buddy.

Fluffy is a three-year-old domestic medium hair who is looking for a “fur”ever home. Her caretakers say she is a sweet girl who loves getting pets and purrs when she is happy. She was brought to the shelter when her former owners were moving and couldn’t take her with them. Her intake number is 404362. Reference picture: Fluffy.

All dog and cat adoption fees include a microchip, basic shelter vaccines (excluding rabies) and a free veterinarian check-up. All cats/kittens, pit bulls and Chihuahua adoptions are just $5 (spay/neuter fees, if applicable, are additional).
