Our only adoption news is that adorable guinea pig, Ruby, has moved to her new home with her new family and everyone is just delighted.

Is anyone looking for a small dog, or two? Maggie and Albie are housemates who are currently residing at the shelter, but they do not need to remain together. Maggie is a six-year old Yorkshire terrier mix who is just adorable and very sweet. Albie is a five-year old cavachon (cavalier King Charles spaniel/bichon frise) who is cute as a button and very playful. Both these dogs get along with other dogs, cats and are good with children. They are up to date and ready to go, so come and get em.

Our cat room residents include a number of younger cats. Cassie is a sweet, petite young tuxedo, and Teaser is a five-year old tuxedo who is very playful and has the softest coat. Elliot is also petite and black and white, but her markings are not tuxedo. DeeDee is a shy, young calico, and Butter is a 14-year old, indoor/outdoor calico with a great personality who is not a fan of dogs. And there’s also Alice, a petite, two-year old, light-colored tabby that gets along with dogs but not cats, and needs an experienced cat owner
