This little lady is Oak, a 12-week-old female that came in as a stray. Upon intake we noticed her carrying one of her front legs as if it hurt. She was examined and it was found that her front leg was broken. Because she is a kitten, the hope is it will heal on its own. This injury has certainly not slowed her down. She will need a home that will accommodate to her needs through the healing process. Come in and meet sweet Oak, she is sure to steal your heart!

Rowdy is a lab mix, 5 months old, weighing 29 pounds. Rowdy is ready to find a home to grow up in. He will need a home that will potty train, teach him manners and help him grow up to be big and healthy. The puppies at the shelter do not go outside, so you are starting everything from the beginning. Puppies are lots of extra work, so a family that is ready for a lifelong commitment is what Rowdy needs. If you are ready for the fun experience of raising a puppy, come in and adopt sweet Rowdy.
