harleyl2Say hi to Harley. He is a 3 year old lab who is looking for a new home. Harley is up to date on his vaccinations, micro-chipped, and has been neutered. He loves to go for walks and has a lot of energy. Harley has done well with the other dogs here at the shelter and kids but we are not sure on his feelings towards cats.











Say hi to Miztique.  She is a 5 year old DSH who is looking for a forever home.  When she arrived at the shelter, she would not let anyone touch her.  I am still shy, but when I went to my foster home I became a lap cat who liked to play!  Miztique would do best in a quiet home with no dogs or small kids.  She has been at the shelter for over a year, which is way too long.  I am current on my vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped.
