Coqueta — Six-year-old spayed female Retriever/Chow-mix surrendered. Good with adults and gentle children. Has been an outdoor dog.
Naney — Senior brown-and-white English Hound-mix. Owner going abroad. Needs a quiet retirement home. Has reasonable doggy manners. Would be a nice, calm companion in a quiet home.  Will have some tumors removed and a good dental next week.
Phoebe — Young, black female Spaniel-mix. temperament testing shows no aggression or guarding issues. Enjoys being around people. Her choice is not to share her new home with another dog or cat.
Seren — Shepherd-mix, still very nervous without her owner, who had to move away for a job. Bonds strongly with a single owner.
Two-Step — A one-year-old male brindle Boxer/Shepherd-mix. Housebroken. Reported to be good with kids and dogs.
All cats are still two-for-one, so if you can’t make up your mind, take them both home. Most cats love having a playmate.
Allie — Senior declawed Calico female that prefers the companionship of people rather than other animals, although she could learn to coexist with select cats.
Cassie — Another plus-sized declawed orange Tabby that loves pets, but only on her terms, might do best in a home with no young children. She is very good about using the scratching post. She was recently  surrendered and is learning to adjust to the company of other cats in the cat room.
Emma — Senior female short-hair, mostly white. Recently surrendered after 12 years in the same home. Now looking for an easy, quiet household that loves to give pets.
Huggies — Black-and-white domestic short-hair kitten with big eyes that can’t wait to find a new family.
Lightening — Gray-and-white Tabby, young and very friendly, especially when you offer tummy rubs.
Lizzie — Very friendly dark gray declawed domestic long-hair. Always been an indoor kitty. Good with dogs and kids.
Moonshadow— Domestic short-hair, mostly white wiht a little gray. Young and loves to play.
Piko — A year-old domestic short-hair orange-and-white neutered male kitty. Look closely to see him peeking out from under the kennels. He’s expected to gain more confidence.
