Meet Smoo. He is a 5-year-old short-haired grey and white tabby neutered male cat. Smoo was surrendered with his sister, Gina. He’s a snuggler, and a playful guy. His owner adopted the two cats, and did not realize he was allergic, so back to the shelter they went.

Buddy is a 1 year and 7 month old neutered male yellow Labrador Retriever whose mom and dad got divorced. They couldn’t keep him, so he ended up coming to stay here. He is a diamond in the rough, and needs someone to smooth out the edges. Buddy already knows sit, down and leave it, and true to his breed, he loves to play fetch with tennis balls. He’s athletic and needs a strong, experienced owner who wants to work out with him every day. He still pulls strongly on his walks and needs to learn to pay more attention to his person.

Simon and Garfunkel are 8-year-old brothers who came to the shelter when their owner developed allergies. They have been here for quite some time and qualify for our bonded pair reduced adoption rate of $120 for both. Garfunkel is a neutered male unusually beautiful buff colored long-haired cat. Simon is a neutered male short-haired orange tabby who tends to hide in the back and let his brother do the talking for him. Garfunkel is the more forward of the two, planning all of their gigs and being out in front socializing. They both, however, enjoy their string toys and laser pointers.
