  Pets Of The Week!



My name is Daisey and I am a 3 year old American Staffordshire Terrier. I would do best in a home with older children. I am a little rough with the other dogs, so I would need to go to a home with no other animals. I am spayed, microchipped, up to date on all of my vaccinations and searching for my new home!



My name is Cheyenne.  I am and 8 year old girl with a lot of personality!  I love to play but I am a little sassy, so I would do best in a home with no small children.  I’m not really fond of other cats, and I think I would be a little bossy with a dog!  I am spayed and microchipped, and I’ve got all of my shots.

In Honor of “Love Your Pet Day” on Saturday, February 20th, all dog and cat adoptions in the month of February will be $20 off!

Our Valentine’s Day Cards are back! For just $5.00 you can send a card to a loved one, family member or friend while supporting the homeless animals in Washington County!
