1/2 Price PET" Adoptions
You probably know by now that when an animal has been at the shelter for 1 year, we consider them a "free" adoption. Well, our pets (dogs and cats) usually don't stay at the shelter for that long, but it seems so unfair to keep them any longer than we have to. So, it has been decided that we will now have 1/2 Price PET Adoptions for those pets that have been at the shelter 6 months or longer. And, we have been having great success with this program. Our available pets change monthly, so keep posted, just in case your new best friend might show up on this page!
Anton and came to the shelter on January 3. He is about 6 years old and neutered. His person passed and no family to care for him and several of his friends. Anton was very standoffish at first, but now he is everybody's best friend and can't wait to be petted and "fed" :) He weight 28 lbs. when he first came to us - now he is at 22 lbs. That's still a little heavy, but he seems to be okay with it :) Anton is another no-trouble-at-all cat, but he does like company and loves to be petted.
Lana is a beautiful Tortoiseshell cat, 2 years old and spayed. She was a bit feral when she came to the shelter with her kittens, but has calmed down a bunch. We can actually pet her now and she likes it :) Lana arrived on January 4, so she has been with us just over 6 months now and the first 2 were hard for her, but she's all better. She would make someone the purrfect in/out cat in time because she does have outside experience. Once she knows her surroundings, she will be the best friend you've ever had!
Oreo is a 2 year old, neutered Cattle Dog/Terrier mix. Oreo is quite the lady's man and loves to play with the girl dogs, but isn't to crazy about the boy dogs - maybe doesn't want them moving in on his ladies :) Oreo was abandoned when his family moved away. He has a lot of energy and loves to play fetch and any other game that is very active. Oreo is good on a leash (once all the excitement is over) very smart and well mannered and we do believe he is housetrained. Oreo came to the shelter on February 7, which makes him now a 1/2 price adoption. Great dog!
Tom was missing a lot of hair when he first came to the shelter on February 16 and we don't think he felt very good either. Well, after several visits to the doctor and a shot to stop the itch, Tom is doing much better now and most all of his hair has grown back - making him a very handsome silver Tabby cat. Tom is 3 years old and neutered. He loves to be petted, just don't overdo. We think because he wasn't feeling good for a while is why we still have him. But we think now that he is doing much better he would make someone the purrfect best friend. Tom is a sweet boy and doesn't require a lot of attention. Purrfect!
Phoebe is a beautiful orange Tabby cat with lots of white underneath. She is about 3 years old and spayed. Phoebe came to the shelter on March 1, her person became unable to care for her. She's a shy cat, but does like to be petted. She's very quiet and pretty much stays to herself, in her room. We think if she could just go home with a new person she would come out of that shyness and be the best friend ever. Phoebe just needs a chance.
Sassy is absolutely the most beautiful buff colored cat with the softest medium length coat and we just can't imagine why she is still with us. She came to the shelter on March 8 and really isn't even a shy cat. She loves people, loves to be petted and doesn't mind being picked up. Sassy even knows her name. She is 6 years old and spayed. Her family had to move and couldn't take her along. Just come meet Sassy and see if she's not the most purrfect girl and remember she is now a 1/2 price adoption!
Lexi came to the shelter on April 25, and not a happy girl at all. Her person became unable to care for her and she was very shy and nervous at first. Now, after 6 months, she has become quite friendly, loves to be petted and taken on over. She is a quiet, very well-mannered cat, actually no trouble at all. She would just love to have a new person for a little lap-time/nap-time. She is a sweet girl that would love to meet you today! Lexi is 3 years old and spayed.
Annabelle is a beautiful, shiny black dog, 2 years old and spayed, a Terrier mix. Annabelle came to the shelter on April 12 and was a bit shy at first, but once she gets to know you, she's your forever best friend. She can still be a little shy at first, but that's just being cautious. We don't think she had a good life before coming to us, but now she's treated with a lot of TLC. Annabelle is great on a leash and housebroken. She knows some commands and will make someone the perfect side-by-side companion. She's also a good watch dog!
Pennie is quite the "talker" - not barker, just talker :) She does have a bark that's not very loud, but if you're not paying attention to her she starts talking to you! She is 5 years old and spayed, has impeccable manners, is great on a leash and housebroken. Pennie would be the perfect companion for an elderly person that just wants a quiet dog to "talk" to, lay on the couch and watch tv with, or sit on the porch and watch the world go by. She can be serious and would also be a great watch dog! Pennie came to the shelter on April 18 after she had been taken in as a stray.
