Four-year-old Snickers is a kindhearted gentleman with a tender, loving soul. Snickers is eager to romp, play and lean into his closest human friends for some petting and scratches. He would make a fabulous sports companion and enjoys learning as much as he enjoys exploring. He will need a home that is eager to train and be active but makes time for naptime snuggles. Snickers must be the only dog in his new home. We recommend he does not go into a home that has cats or small animals. Snickers’s adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor. 

The adoption fee for puppies (<6 months) is $350, for adult dogs is $250, and senior dogs (7+ years) and special needs dogs are 50% off the adoption fee. 




One-year-old Pinecone is a sweet gal with a magnetic personality. This girl is a social butterfly who’s always happy to introduce herself to new people. She’s also a cuddlebug with her close human friends. Pinecone would love to be a part of a home that can provide her with lots of attention and playtime. Pinecone tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and should be kept indoors to protect her immune system. FIV is specific to cats, and does not spread through casual contact such as shared water bowls, litter boxes, snuggling, or playing with other cats. Pinecone’s adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor.

The adoption fee for kittens (<6 months) is $150, for adult cats is $100, $25 off each for multiple cats/kittens, and senior cats (7+ years) and special needs cats are 50% off the adoption fee.
