I'm an adorable little girl that made my way here after my owner left me to fend for myself in an house with no water, food or electricity. The nice neighbors heard me cry and called Animal Control. They came and saved me and when I arrived at the SPCA, I was terrified but wanted to badly to trust. The nice folks here have taken great care of me and taught me that I can trust people again. It takes me a little bit to warm up and bond with you but when I do, I am sure to be a wonderful companion. I am currently an office dog and boy do I love it. I have a nice quiet place to call my temporary home and I have made a lot of new human friends. I have tried to make some canine friends but I think I would be happiest as the only dog. I get overwhelmed and intimidated by other dogs, especially larger and more active types. If you have a very calm and socialized dog, then maybe we would be a good match and as long as they respect my space. I ignore kitty cats, so I should be fine with feline friends. I kind of act like a cat sometimes, so that might be a cute match. Due to my timid and sensitive nature, I need a calm and patient household, ideally without any rambunctious children or visitors. I am currently thriving in a foster home, please fill out a Matchmaker form if you'd like to meet me!

Our Adoption Process...

We ask potential adopters to fill out a matchmaker form. When they are ready to adopt an animal and the form and interview process indicates a good match, we have the adopter sign an adoption contract promising that the animal will receive good physical and emotional care. Fees vary and we often have adoption specials. Fees for senior pets are sponsored. Otherwise, dogs are $100, puppies $150 and up, cats are $75, kittens are $95.
