Featured Cat

Buddha Bear

Tip Meet Buddha Bear. Buddha Bear has a lot to live up to in his name, but we think he can do it. This peaceful, calm boy is happy to head-butt your hand for some behind-the-ear scratches and purrs contentedly when in the company of people he loves. He's a big boy, but he doesn't mind; that simply means there is more of him to love. He's confident without being pushy and he seems to know exactly what you need-- more kitty love.

If you are looking for a sweet adult cat who is ready to give you all of his unconditional love, come meet Buddha Bear. You'll leave enchanted, and possibly with a new best friend for life. Petfinder profile.

Featured Dog


Brownie Meet Brownie, an adult pittie / lab mix. When Brownie arrived at the shelter as a stray, she was understandably nervous--it was hard for her to relax. As we got to know Brownie, however, we see her lay nicely in her crate, and laugh as she wiggles with glee when she sees her favorite people; we know this is a silly, sweet, and happy girl full of love to give. In fact, when our volunteers tried to jog with Brownie we found out that she skips instead!

As more and more of her sunny personality has emerged over time, we're betting that once she goes home -- with YOU! -- she will continue to blossom. Little Brownie simply needed a little love and patience to get her started on her way.

This beautiful lady with the sweet soul and the heart of gold can't wait for your visit! Come see why Brownie has become a staff and volunteer favorite: Petfinder profile.
