Dog of the Week – MARLEIGH

Age: 3 ½ years

Color: Brown & White

Breed: Shepherd/Boxer/Hound Mix

Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: $160

Hello there, I’m Marleigh, a shy and gentle 3.5-year-old Shepherd/Boxer/Hound mix who’s looking for someone who’ll love me unconditionally and be patient with me. You see, I am so shy that I find it hard to open up to people, but I have found a great friend in one of the shelter’s staff and I’ve opened up to her. So all I will need is the right home with someone who’ll take the time to let my light shine! I am a wonderfully sweet and loveable girl. I am completely house trained and get along with other animals too. Understandably, I do have some separation anxiety, but my former family said that besides my anxiety, I was the perfect dog. Maybe I could be the perfect dog for you! Please stop by and visit with me soon.


Cat of the Week – KITTY

Age: 4 years

Color: Black, Tan & White

Breed: Domestic Shorthair Mix

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $95

Kitty was recently brought to the shelter by a Good Samaritan who found him wandering outside. Although he was a stray, this guy is a big LOVE BUG! He loves to cuddle and meows loudly for attention! Kitty came to us already neutered and is even front declawed! He is currently available for adoption in our cattery, so stop by today to adopt him! Remember, all adoptions are first come, first served so hurry in! You won’t want to miss out on this guy!


Small Critter of the Week – MARY

Age: 2 ½ years

Color: Butterscotch & White

Breed: Guinea Pig

Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: $20

This cutie is Mary, and she’s about two and a half years old. Mary would make a wonderful companion for someone who can devote an hour or two each day for exercise and affection. If you’ve never had a piggy before, they’re pretty easy to care for, so do some reading or talk to your vet about their care and comfort, then come and meet Mary in our Critter Cottage today!
