Pets of the Week


Molly is an adorable tricolor Shepherd & Australian Shepherd mix.  She’s 3 years old and weighs 50 lbs.  Molly is fun and friendly, and she’s pretty active and loves running around in the yard... check out her video!.  She is very bright and eager to learn— she knows basic commands and she’s very treat motivated.  Sadly, Molly was a neglect case and not well cared for or socialized in her previous home, so she does need a home without other pets or young kids.  

Molly loves playing outdoors and would love hiking and other activities, but in quiet places:  she is extremely afraid of car traffic.  We’re working with her, but she will definitely need a home that’s not in the hustle & bustle of downtown or midtown— a quiet neighborhood in the suburbs or a rural area would be great for her.  She loves to go for walks. She also likes to climb, so she'll need a tall fence and/or close supervision.

Molly can be vocal, especially when she gets spooked by something, so she’ll also need a house vs an apartment or multi-family home.   More obedience training will help her gain confidence in conditions that scare her, such as car traffic. Molly keeps her kennel very clean and we think she’ll house train pretty quickly.

Molly has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms. She's a super sweet girl.


Duchess  is a beautiful little white kitty with green eyes. She’s 4 years old. Duchess is very playful and every morning her routine is to run around the cat room! Duchess is not super fond of the other cats, but she would probably be fine in a home with one other cat who didn’t want to interact with her very much. She does need a home without dogs or kids. 

Duchess takes a bit to warm up to new people, and she’s fairly independent. She does get bitey if you force her to interact, so you just have to let her get to know you and decide when she wants attention. Sadly, Duchess was given up because her person who loved her very much became seriously allergic to her and unable to control her allergies with medication. Duchess would be a nice companion in a fairly quiet home with someone who’d be patient with her while she settles in.  

Duchess has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for FIV and feline leukemia. 


River is a gorgeous black kitty with a fluffy coat. She is a year old. River is a little bit shy and skittish. She can be very outgoing and will seek attention, but also sometimes prefers her alone time. She’s pretty talkative. She doesn’t like to be held but she loves belly rubs. River also loves to climb up high and would need a place or places to perch in her new home. 

River is very playful and she gets along well with other cats. She’s seen dogs through the cat room windows and seems interested in playing with them, but she’s never been face to face with a dog. She wouldn’t be a good match for a home with kids since she’s a little shy.  

River has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for FIV and feline leukemia.
