 Pets Of The Week!



Hi my name is Blondie!  I am a one year old Lab/Pit Bull mix looking for my forever home.  I love to be around people of all ages and I do really well with other dogs.  I am current on my vaccinations, microchipped and spayed.  Visit me at the shelter today!



My name is Mollie and I am a 10 year old, long haired female brought to the shelter after my owner passed away. I am a bit shy but I am very sweet and I like to be held and cuddled. I don’t seem to mind the other cats too much and I like children but were unsure of how I will do with dogs. I would probably do best in a quiet home where I can relax and sleep! I am spayed, current on vaccines and microchipped.
