Mutt of the Month:



Affectionate, playful, and awesome in a home environment, Yoshi is the perfect dog for a mature family. Born around 2014, this hunk of handsomeness arrived in our care when we rescued him from an overcrowded animal control facility. Although he does not have the best behavior when in a kennel, Yoshi is simply the perfect gentleman in a home and is more than ready to find his way into the arms of a loving family.

Meow of the Month:





Adele would make a purr-fect companion for somebody looking for a gorgeous cat to live with. Born in 2009, Adele prefers to take things at her own pace and would do best with somebody who understands her need for independence.
