Meet Our Pets of the Month

Meet Crowley, this is one energetic little man. He is about 11 months old and is still very much a puppy. He greatly enjoys the company of people and children also, while he can be energetic he does calm down and at the point he is a puddle of cuddles, and really how could you resist that goofy face? While Crowley sure does love his people he prefers to be the only animal in the home, and why not? He wants all the love to himself and frankly with that face how can you deny him? Crowley is patiently awaiting his forever home. Could that home be yours? If interested please contact Michelle. Find Out More...
Great cat! Personable and loving, Molly lets you carry her around. She knows no strangers -- all visitors are pleasantly greeted and welcomed by her. You won't have to look far for her, as she likes to be in your company. Careful not to interfere with your work, Molly will share your room and approach when invited.
