This mysterious beauty’s name is Carley. She’s a very sweet 8 year old, but also very shy.  She’s looking for an experienced cat-owner who will be patient with her while she adjusts to her new surroundings. She might get along with dogs that are respectful and well-trained, but we’re not sure how she’ll do with other cats. Carley has a lot of potential and needs a loving companion to help her open up. If you would like to be that special person, adopt Carley, A079085. 

FEATURED PETS: Theo and Annie

Can’t decide if you want a mellow lapdog or an energetic, playful one? Well, how about one of each?!  Theo and Annie are a very sweet bonded pair looking for a new home.  Theo is a 7 year-old Coonhound and the social butterfly of the two. He’s laid back and loves hanging out with the humans.  Annie is a 3 year-old miniature Poodle/Spaniel mix. She’s full of energy, and loves playing with her toys.  Both are well-behaved and get along great with kids older than 5.  They’re looking for a home without cats, and we’re unsure how they’ll behave around other dogs.  If you’re interested in meeting a dynamic duo, come check out Theo, A079077, and Annie, A079078.


What’s not to love about this dapper fellow?  Mr. Jasper is a black domestic shorthair cat who LOVES people! He’s very easygoing and very, VERY friendly. He loves being petted, and, boy, does he love to talk!  We think he’s bragging about his recent dental work that gave him a fabulous smile. Nonetheless, just make sure your family (and your neighbors) are cool with a talkative cat.  At 12 years old, he prefers kids 10 years and up. He’s probably fine with other cats, but we’re not sure about dogs. He’s a really awesome guy who deserves a good home. Adopt Mr Jasper, A078354.






My name is Friday. I'm a super playful, loving little girl. I'm also a purring machine! 
I get along well with cats, dogs and kids. I have beautiful long hair that may trigger allergies, so before considering me for adoption, make sure everyone can tolerate me! 
I must remain indoor only. Please contact my foster mom for more information at joselinegomez@hotmail.com






Rocky was a very sick kitten when he came to the shelter in November. The staff and volunteers nursed him back to health and gave him a lot of attention. While he was pretty skittish and afraid at first, he’s come a long way and is very affectionate and playful when he’s comfortable. In new situations he may need some time and patience to adjust. Rocky would do best in a quiet home with an experienced cat owner. In his foster home the last few weeks he has enjoyed a cat playmate, and has been fine with an older, respectable dog.  If you would like to meet Rocky please e-mail his foster Kristen:  kbt@bluesong.com



There’s a tuxedo-sporting pup awaiting his moment in the spotlight!  Benson is a very good-looking black and white Pit Bull Terrier boy that strayed his way into the shelter.  He is seeking an adult-only home and experienced dog owner with whom to build a forever bond.  This dapper 2-year-old will need daily exercise, basic training, some socialization, and plenty of room to romp!  Benson is a sweet, affectionate boy with a shy disposition at first; he takes a little time to warm up, but once he does, the love fest can ensue!  So get a load of that handsome face, and then hustle over to adopt your new furry co-star, Benson, A076321!


Cream colored, like an Arizona desert adobe, Robbie will warm up your life with his endearing personality and lovely look.  He is a 5-year-old Chinese Sharpei and Chihuahua mix that needs daily exercise and some fun, basic training.  Robbie is a balanced boy; he loves the affection of human companions, but also enjoys his independence as well.  More mature youths, above the age of 13, and cool, compassionate adults will provide the perfect vibe for this fella.  He can hold a respectable conversation, too, so Robbie’s home should be in a house, not in an apartment complex.  Have you been watching the sands of time go by without a furry friend by your side?  Remedy that right away by adopting a handsome, deserving dog like Robbie, A076303!







Tolula can be shy and timid at first, but once you spend some time getting her acclimated, she turns in to the sweetest, most affectionate kitty! She loves her toes rubbed and cuddles up to you at night. She’s extremely playful and likes to hide around corners to ambush you, but does not use her claws. She likes chasing her tail. Every morning she looks forward to playing with her cat toys and will jump around and around as you wave them at her.  Tolula answers to her name and will come running to you from across the house when called. She’s flipped the light switch on, so if this is a behavior you like it could be encouraged. She may also be capable of playing fetch.  This sweet girl has been around 2 other kittens and has gotten along well with them. She also has been around an 8-year-old boy. She will make someone very happy; her foster family will be sad to see her go.  Please feel free to contact Karen (Foster parent) via email: kittenherding@gmail.com

forever home!  For more information, contact:  Fabiola at Kitkathub@gmail.com
