Story
Looking for a little bundle of joy to brighten up your days? Look no further than Kuromi! Kuromi is not just a delight to be around for people, she's also great with other dogs! In her foster home, she peacefully coexists with cats, proving that her friendly demeanor knows no bounds. She's a true outdoors enthusiast who thrives in nice weather, soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the great outdoors to the fullest. Kuromi is also a well-behaved pup indoors. She's mastered both crate and potty training, showing her intelligence and eagerness to please. And while she's perfectly content snoozing in her crate, she's non-destructive when she's curled up in her foster mom's bed at night, enjoying sweet dreams of adventures to come. If you're ready to welcome a little bundle of joy into your life, then Kuromi is the girl for you.

Story
Katie is a sweet little senior seeking her forever home. She was returned by previous adopter due to them going into the nursing home and no longer able to care for her. She will be 13 years old on 4/29/24 and would love a quiet home with someone to love her. Are you that person?   Poor Katie, Pippa, and Meg Ryan lost there mom a few years ago and were just surrendered by their dad. He had not had the means to care for them and they were all in pretty rough shape. Katie was the healthiest of the ladies and is the only long haired of the bunch. Her full sister is Pippa and Meg Ryan is either her mom or a sister from a prior litter. Pippa was in terrible shape when she arrived with what we thought was a seriously bad hernia. Ended up being not only a hernia but also pyometria. She had emergency surgery and her hernia repaired as well as most of her teeth removed due to decay.  Meg Ryan had terribly bad ears and a hernia as well which has been fixed. Her ears may need vigilance and regular checkups by a vet are recommended to make sure they stay on the mend. All these ladies are super sweet, but shy and will need quiet homes.  ##910755##

Story
"Hello lovely humans! 🐾 I'm Brownie, a beautiful little girl, 11 years old. along My buddy Sophie and I found ourselves here after our devoted owner passed away. We were dearly loved, but now we're a bit scared and confused by shelter life. Here's the deal – Sophie and I are inseparable! We've been through thick and thin together, and we're looking for a forever home where we can stay side by side. It's a two-for-one deal – adopt one, get one free! 🐾💕 I've got a bit of arthritis, but who doesn't at this age, right? It doesn't slow me down from enjoying life. I can be held, I'm curious about the world around me, and I've got an affectionate nature. We lived with another dog, so with patience and slow introductions, we may be okay with a gentle calm dog. Sophie and I dream of finding a loving home that's quiet and relaxing, a place where we can spend our golden years surrounded by love. If you're ready to open your heart to two adorable companions, Sophie and I are here, eagerly waiting to bring warmth and joy into your home. Let's make the rest of our lives the best of our lives together! 🏡💖 #AdoptBrownieAndSophie #DoubleTheLove" ........... We do ADOPTIONS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, on a first-come/first serve basis.
