Story
Meet Comet! Here is a bit about him, in his own words… or woofs… -I LOVE toys but not small ones, bones to chew and I get the zoomies all the time. -I’m very loving, I’m learning how to cuddle and love to lay on the couch with a bone. -I think I would like a doggy friend but also could be happy as an only dog. -I’ve been neutered and got a clean bill of health from the vet as well. -I would love someone who would work with me on learning better leash skills and manners training. Comet was a shelter pull at risk of euthanasia due to space and the time he had been there. We were able to get him full vaccinated, neutered, and even allergy tested. He’s been doing great on the specific allergy friendly food he is on. We are thankful we could give him the chance at a forever life by bringing him to our rescue and helping him on his journey to finding a family! If Comet sounds like he could be a match, please fill out an application on our website.

Story
Meet Reba! This sweet girl was unfortunately dealt a tough start to life where she was chained in the backyard and neglected to a point where her collar had to be surgically removed from her neck. The sweet lady has made incredible strides in her life since then and we know the right family will leave all her bad memories in the past and fill up her future with only love. We’ve made up a list for what this special girl would like in a forever home: -An active home with lots of walks and time to play ball. -I am crate trained but it’s not my favorite place so I would love to sleep in bed and cuddle on the couch with you. -Older kids would be best since I can be a little hyper I might knock a little one down. -She is open to having a doggy sibling but no cats If interested in applying for Reba, please fill out an application on our website. She can’t wait to meet you!

Good with kids, Good with dogs, Needs special attention, Needs experienced adopter,
Story
Sadaris “Tink”, my really chill, lovable, and friendly doggy was saved by me from previous unfortunate situations. Favorite activities included running in the yard, playing with squeaky toys, and playing fetch with stuffed animals. Tink loves belly rubs and just getting all the attention he can. He will even sit and enjoy movies with you, loves taking naps, and eager to go on adventures (car rides are his favorite)! Previously my lovable guy has lost his vision. I have taken him to be seen but unfortunately I am unable to afford healthcare help he needs. He has learned to get around the house himself but requires a little guidance sometimes until he gets used to a new place. Tink will go up& down stairs (please guide him verbally) so that isn’t an obstacle for him. Though, he is sometimes scared jumping off furniture. I love him, & want a safe and lovable home for him. FEE LISTED CAN BE NEGOTIATED! Wasn’t trained before, I’ve been working with him on toileting. Set schedules help!
