Story
Kaley 6yo-Female-39lbs FEE WAIVED EXTENDED STAY RESIDENT Thankfully Kaley is one of the lucky ones who gets to enjoy her time in a foster home. But we think its her turn to find that special family to call her own! Kaley's foster wanted to provide the world with a little bio on our silly girl! "Do you every get lonely walking throughout your house? Do you always want your spot stolen on the couch or in the bed? Well look no further! Kaley is the most AMAZING shadow and spot stealer around! This girl will follow you anywhere, but never under your feet. You can see her sweetness in her eyes. She is quite the cuddle bug, and always wants to be right next to you!" A perfect home for Kaley would look a little something like this.. A family of any size & age to spoil her rotten Lots of enrichment toys A laid back canine pal, or even a home where she could be a single queen A crib without any felines. Kaley says, "no thanks" to kitties Schedule an appointment to meet Kaley any time during business hours Mon-Sat 11AM-5PM and Wednesdays 11AM-6PM!
