Spotlight Saturdays


Almost every Saturday afternoon, we have been featuring one of our adoptable animals on a Facebook live session. Past featured animals include adoptable Miracle, Sam, Tyler, Ashes, Saffron, Pebbles, Bullwinkle and Rocky. Please join us live on our Facebook page on Saturday afternoons if you want to ask us questions or watch the replays here:

Featured Dog: Miracle


Miracle is a very sweet 8-year-old Pit Bull Terrier. He likes to explore our fenced in dog run. Miracle loves to go on walks and already knows some commands. He likes being petted and would love a new home soon.

Featured Cat: Sam


Sam is a pretty 2-year-old domestic short hair cat. She would love to be a part of an experienced cat owner family as she can get overly stimulated and does not like to be picked up. Sam enjoys hanging out in enclosed spaces and would enjoy a home of her own where she could explore and relax. She seems to get along with dogs but does not like other cats.
