Meet Our Pets of the Month

Meet Hope! This fun loving girl is up for pretty much everything, from a walk in the park to a game of fetch! Hope absolutely loves to play ball and would be great for a little leaguer as she really likes kids! Hope is on the energetic side, so a "go get 'em" home would be best. Hope is up for hiking or other outdoor activities. Though super quick to befriend women and children, Hope can take a little bit of time to warm up to her men friends but she does get there! Hope also has a minor heart condition, but it is easily controlled with a special diet and it does not slow her down in the least and she is expected to live a long and happy life! Now, we just need a family for Hope to spend her life with! 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!
