Unfortunately, too many animals are homeless and end up getting killed at the shelters every day. Dogs, cats, rabbits…pure-breds and mutts…there’s just not enough people adopting. Please consider going to your local shelter and adopting a pet. If you can’t commit to an animal full time and would like to be a foster parent, please visit and click on volunteer, then foster care. For more pets in need of homes, please visit If you’d like to foster for a rescue group, please email for information.

Here are some  four-legged finds in need of a loving home.  If  you are interested in one of these furry friends, please contact the shelter at the phone number listed below. These are just a few — there are many more waiting at the shelters.

Impound # 1061512, Bunny,  4 months, 3lbs My name is Marshmellow and I’m very petite and pretty! I love all bunnies and humans but want a home to call my own. I got dumped because there were too many animals at the house. Guess they didn’t have enough sense to spay & neuter. Now I’m abandoned and worry because people forget that bunnies need homes too. Won’t you love me forever? I’m quite and will be your friend for life.



Impound # 1059461, Gray & White Tabby Domestic Short Hair Kitten,
12 weeks, 2 ½ lbs
I’m Timmy and am very handsome if I say so myself, but am depressed because I got dumped in a box with 3 siblings. I love everyone I meet and really love to play with humans. I don’t want to be at the shelter anymore. Won’t you come adopt me? I want to be your forever friend.


Poodle (no name)

Impound # 1068091, Toy Poodle Apricot,  14 weeks, 5 lbs I have no name yet (sniff sniff). I’m very pretty. I was found wandering around the streets in an area called “Scary Town.”  I’m mellow, LOVE people and other dogs. I’m scared at the shelter which is why I didn’t take a good picture. I promise to be very photogenic if you come adopt me. I’m so cute and just a ball of love. Please come get me out of here.



Impound # 1048754, Red Siberian Husky, 2 yrs, 65 lbs
I’m Rocky, a HANDSOME red Siberian Husky that was dumped at the shelter by my “guardian.” They kept me in the backyard instead of making me a part of the family so I kept escaping. I’m great with dogs and love everyone I meet. I sing too and am told I have a beautiful voice. Please come adopt me. I just want to be by your side and have someone to love.
