Looking for a new furry family member? Whether you are looking for big or small, young or old we have a pet that will fit your needs. 

Just let us know what you are looking for and we will do our best to set you up with a furbaby that fits your needs/expectations. 


Meet Kate. She was scheduled to be euthanized at our local animal shelter. Her time was up and the small facility was over crowded. This is often the case. There is a high volume of animals coming through their doors, and although the shelter has a dedicated volunteer group who works tirelessly to help these animals, they are unable to get them all adopted or sent to rescue.  I adopted Kate hours before her life would have been extinguished. Every day I look at Kate and think how close she came, so very close. She is a wonderful girl, sweet and eager to please. I think of all the animals who, through no fault of their own, lose their lives every day. 

Who is Kate?
