Dog of the Week – DRAKE

Age: 3 years

Color: Black & Brown

Breed: Rottweiler Mix

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $160

This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine! Hello, my name is Drake, and my old life ended when I was tied to the front gate of the shelter. My new life began when the shelter workers found me the next morning, scared and all alone. With love and patience, they waited for me to relax and what a teddy bear I’ve become! I love to go for long walks and be scratched behind my ears. How about helping me write the next chapters of my life? I like comedies, love stories and action/adventure. My new life begins NOW with YOU!


Cat of the Week – LILLY

Age: 1 ½ years

Color: Gray & White

Breed: Domestic Shorthair Mix

Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: $95

“Lilly…. Lilly…. Lilly!” That’s my dream, me being carried out the front door of the shelter in a fancy new carrier while the crowd of people lined up to apply to adopt me chants, “Lilly… Lilly… Lilly!” Hasn’t happened yet, but you never know… maybe TODAY will be the day! I’m only a year and a half old and I’m a super sweetie pie.

Let’s watch the excitement build… the line of cars climb on the parking lot… the adoption applications flood in…. Ooops, sorry, I was dreaming again! But just think… what if… WHAT IF… it wasn’t a dream? Or what if my dream could come TRUE? My dream is in your hands.


Small Critter of the Week – STEVE & NEIL

Age: 4 years

Turtles at a shelter? Well where else were we going to go when our owner couldn’t keep us anymore? I’m Steve and my pal, Neil, looks just like me. We’re 4-year old painted turtles who have pretty cool patterns on our shells. We just ask that you do your reading to make sure you’re ready to take good care of us so we live a long and healthy life.
