Pets of the Week


Zappa is a super cute Pit Bull mix with some big crazy ears! He's very fun and friendly and just a goofy guy. He's got lots of energy and he loves to play with toys. He's also very food motivated. Zappa's a talker and he makes the craziest noises. His vocals probably wouldn't be suitable for an apartment, but they're fun if you like a dog to converse with and don't need a perfectly quiet dog!

Zappa is a year old and weighs about 50 lbs. He was a stray. He had been attacked by a couple of bigger dogs and was beat up pretty badly with lots of wounds. We hospitalized him and now he's all healed up and ready for his new home.

Zappa likes some but not all other dogs. He generally prefers more submissive dogs and females. If you have a dog we'd ask you to make an appointment to bring your dog in so they can meet. Zappa does need a home without cats. He can jump a fence so will need careful supervision in a fenced yard. He loves to go for walks and for rides in the car.

Zappa has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms. He's a sweetie and lots of fun!


Charlie is a sweet little Beagle mix. He's about 6 years old. He was brought to us by a neighbor after his family moved away and just left Charlie behind in the yard. The poor guy wasn't very socialized and was very stressed. Luckily we were able to find a wonderful foster home for Charlie and he's making great progress!

His foster parents said that it took about 10 days for Charlie to settle in and act relaxed and happy to see them. They are working with him on further socializing and training, and he's been coming to our satellite adoption events where he's met many people and is doing great!

Charlie is house trained and crate trained. He lives with other dogs in his foster home and has learned how to play. He seems to do best with dogs his size or bigger and who are fairly mellow like he is. If you have a dog we'd ask you to make an appointment to bring your dog in to meet Charlie to make sure they like each other.

Charlie knows some obedience commands and sits nicely. He likes to go for car rides.

Charlie will need a home without children. A quiet home without a lot of activity would be ideal for him, with someone who will be patient with him while he settles in.

Charlie weighs 46 lbs and he's been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms. If you're interested in adopting him, please submit an online adoption form and if he seems like a good match for you we'll set up a convenient time for you to meet him. His foster parents can also tell you more about him. He's come a long way-- they told us that " they've rally come to love the dog Charlie has become. With all of his sweetness he still possesses a certain amount of Swagger that gives him personality!"


Ledo is a darling black and white kitten with cute markings. He is 4 months old. Ledo is friendly, playful and he gets along great with other cats and kittens.

Ledo has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for FIV and feline leukemia.
