There's More to Love with Large Dogs

Dogs 30+ Pounds - $25

Our kennels are full of primarily medium- and large-sized dogs. yet everyone asks for small dogs. Or puppies. We're asking you to take a look at one of our "over-grown lap dogs." They're every bit as cuddly as pint-sized pups--there's just more to love when your baby weighs 80-pounds.

Cats $10

Sadly, it's the adult cats--the ones who remember what it's like to have a home--who wait in the shelter the longest. Right now, we have some ultra-friendly felines who've been waiting 20, 30, even 40 days, without any interest. We have just a few weeks left before the holidays--help us find them homes in time.
