Mutt of the Month



Jake is a very handsome eight-month-old puppy. He is very friendly with people, loves to run and play, and even enjoys the company of other dogs. Jake is looking for an owner who has time to teach him all the things puppies should learn: how to go potty outside, how to be calm when greeting new people, and more. With some time, patience, and training, we are certain that Jake will grow into a well-mannered adult dog.
Will you be the person to bring Jake home? Meet him at the shelter facility to see if he is the right one for you!

Meow of the Month





Born in 2014, Jasmine arrived in our care with her nine kittens. All her kittens have been adopted, so it's her turn to find a home! Jasmine can be shy with people at first, and she is scared of fast movements; but all this beautiful girl wants is love and attention. Once she trusts you, Jasmine is a very affectionate cat who wants nothing more than somebody who will love her.


Will you provide Jasmine with a loving home? Meet her at Paw Prints Animal Hospital today!
