Featured Adoptable Pet: Finley

The dog that Finley is today is so very different from the five-month-old puppy who arrived here from Thailand two years ago. She’s come such a long way, both in distance and behavior. Although still shy, she is sweet tempered and has started to learn to trust people. Now all she needs is a caring and patient family to go home with!

Open Your Heart to a Furry Valentine

February is a month with HEART. So we’re focusing on both heart health and sweethearts! Adopt or help promote a special-needs cat who has a lot of heart and may just need some extra care to keep them healthy. Heart conditions are not always troublesome—often they can be controlled with regular veterinary visits and medication. Many heart conditions are quite common in animals, and it doesn’t mean they can’t live happy lives. It’s time to find yourself a kitty sweetheart who really needs someone to love!
