Meet Our Pets of the Month

Seabreeze is a little bit nervous around new people at first, but she goes from nervous to lots of kisses pretty quickly! Once Seabreeze gets to know you, she is the most loving and loyal dog that you will ever meet. Seabreeze also does very well with other dogs and loves her time in play groups with the other dogs. Seabreeze would do well in a quiet family home who is looking for the most loyal dog ever! Find Out More...
Bethany is a Lovely Lass! Bethany is an intelligent, personable adult tabby female. She is affectionate and has a lively curiosity. She greets you upon entering and loves to be in your presence. She lets you pick her up and carry her around. Bethany has a love of chasing feather and wand toys. In quiet moments, she enjoys sitting on your lap and gazing at you with adoration!
