Meet Our Pets of the Month

Fern Molly
Fern Molly is ready for her forever home! She came in from a situation where she was being bred often and is ready to leave that all behind. Fern Molly is doing great in playgroups with the other dogs and is really warming up to and bonding with people. We would love to place her in a home with other dogs and feel that she would do well as a family dog with kids as well. Fern Molly really is a sweetie. Don't pass this girl up! ** Molly's best friend at the shelter is Carter. Though they do not have to go together, if they do, we will be doing a "Adopt one, get one free" deal. Find Out More...
Franklin is quite a genial fellow! He is a good-looking, somewhat portly gentleman cat. Named after Franklin D. Roosevelt, our Franklin is a brown tabby cat with white. He loves to sit in laps and knead with his paws, as if he were just an extra-large kitten! He is steady and calm. He just wants to be one the guys...someone hand him the remote control!
