  • | Local Events, adopt a pet, furever home
    - Hey all! I'm a big beautiful gal named Shakira. I was found as a stray, but I'm slowly getting used to life as a potential pet. I'm learning some manners and enjoying my walks and playtime. And it turns out I love to snack on ice during these hot days! I am in need of some obedience classes, and I'd benefit from a confidant pack leader of an owner who can redirect some of my nervous energy. I should not live with young kids or cats. If you have a dog, we can work out a meet and greet to see if we like each other.

  • | Local Events, adopt a pet, furever home
    - This sweet girl has been at the shelter for a year. It’s time for her to find a loving home! Please help give this loving girl a home of her very own!!!

    My name is Terra Cotta, and I'm young, frisky, playful, and I can be quite a handful at times (in a good way). Right now at the shelter, I get to live in my own spacious cat condo -- I have lots of places to climb, hide, nap, and watch the happenings in the hallway. I love to sharpen my claws on the cat tree, and my new home will definitely need something like this to keep me feeling good. I was originally found as a very young stray who was born in 2016, and I might not have had the best experience out there on the streets. I do not get along with cats or dogs, and I'll need to be your only pet. Any human kiddos in my new home should be over the age of 10. My friends here are working on my socialization skills, and the staff will fill you in on those details! I'm a pretty girl who loves to be petted but really loves to be active and on the go!

Maudie, bright eyed but hunched with crippled hands, yearns to be independent, to live away from her protective family and she also yearns, passionately, to create art. Unexpectedly, Everett finds himself falling in love. Maudie charts Everett's efforts to protect himself from being hurt, Maudie's deep and abiding love for this difficult man and her surprising rise to fame as a fold painter.
