Story
Like to have good conversations? I`m your girl, I could talk with you for awhile. My name is Reese and you are sure to love me to pieces. Don`t let my age fool you, I want nothing more than a yard to run in and a ball to chase. I wouldn`t mind cuddling up to you in your bed or on the couch while you watch your favorite shows (you can always bribe me with a treat!). If you like a dog with energy and maturity, come see me at the ARC!

Hi, I’m Scrat and I would love to be your new fur-ever friend. Ask staff about my favorite toy. Spoiler alert, its a ball! Staff see me playing with my favorite ball all day and carrying it with me wherever I go. I am looking for someone to make me their favorite thing to bring everywhere too. I am pawsitively sure we can raise the woof. I would like to share my treat-o’s, to let you know I’m going to be mutts about you.

Story
Hi, I`m Peanut and I`m nutty for you. It doesn`t take much to get me out of my shell. I go nuts for pets, cuddles, and play time. At the shelter you will always catch me with a squeaky toy in my mouth, always ready to play with you. I give full wiggles for every person I meet. I have been waiting for a home since November of 2023. Luckily I have great friends in the shelter to help keep my spirits up, but there is nothing I want more than a home to call my own. I will make the best companion for your family. Come see me at the ARC!

Story
Hey guys! My name is Sprite. I have been waiting for my furever home since November of 2023. In that time I have started showing signs of being potty trained, have started learning how to `sit` for a treat, and learned what kind of toys and treats I like. I walk pretty good on leash too. Everyone always tells me how cute my curly tail is but nobody has taken me home. I am only 4 years old so I have a lot of life to live, and a whole lot of love to give. Looking for a hiking partner? Check. Looking for a bestfriend to vent to? Check. I am a jack of all trades and would love to meet you and see if we are the perfect fit. Come see me at the ARC!

There`s no place like home! There`s no place like home! Glinda said my name is Ruby becuase I have magical powers in making friends and saving you from danger. I love being the best girl here at the ARC but I would really like to go back to Kanas now. I have been in the land of ARC since 2023. I am ready to find my forever home. I would love to play tug, share your treats and sleep in your bed, just like Toto. I am a little older but as they say the older the wiser. I like getting to hang with my favorite Munchkins and love to go for walks on the yellow brick road. I have a smart brain, a big heart, and lots of courage.

I know I may look a little rough around the edges but I promise I clean up great. My name is Harvey. I am looking for my very best friend. I have been at the ARC since January. I LOVE toys and will play with my stuffies all day. I may seem like an old man but I`m just a pup at heart. I would like to share all your yummy treats and cuddle with you. If you think I could be your new mate come meet me at the ARC.
