Kay Kay

is a 3 year old male Domestic Shorthair/Mix who is looking for someone with a bit of patience to help her come out of her shell. She is a bit of a scared-y cat, but with the right owner, she is destined for greatness!


is a 4 year old female Boxer/Mix who is your average, high maintenance southern belle! Like most belles, she does have a few requests - she would prefer to be the only belle in the home with humans older than 10 years old, and requests company when she goes outside, or she'll hop the fence to chase anything she can find! If you can grant her these requests, she will be the most loving dog you could ever hope for! Come meet this sweetie today!

Xena WP

is a 4 month old female Domestic Medium Hair/Mix who is, indeed, a "WP" (Warrior Princess). We believe she was caught in a car engine as a kitten and, as a result, only has 3 legs and spooks easily. She might play for a moment, but, as all warrior princesses do, she would prefer to be left to do her own thing. Will you be the one to rescue this sweet warrior?


is a 9 year old female American Blue Heeler/Terrier, Pit Bull Mix who would make a great addition to any home! She loves treats and being active, and can't wait to be a part of your family.


is a 1 year old female Domestic Medium Hair/Mix who is just itching for a chance to warm up your heart! Come visit her today - she would love to meet you!


is a 2 year old male Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix who is just about as calm, cool and collected as they come. He is not a huge fan of others dogs, but he will hang out with you all day every day if given the chance. Come meet this cool dude today.


is a 6 month old male Domestic Shorthair/Mix who will talk your ear off all day long, but will require it to be on his terms to love on you. Looking for a pro tip? Treats will get him to warm up to you much faster than it normally would. 🙂


is a 4 year old male Chihuahua, Short Coat/Mix whose favorite hobby is hiding under blankets. He has a personality all his own, and we'll guarantee it will make you smile. Come meet him - you won't regret it!
