Adoption Corner!
Everybody's needs a place to belong... these two belong together. Smokey and Lizette "met" when they came to F~ they've been besties ever since. They can be found snuggling on the sunny window hammock, eating together or just walking side by side. Smokey's a 5year old boy that was once living outside; Lizette is a 1year old girl that was rescued from a high kill shelter. They both are now safe in our catroom, but would love nothing more than to find a cozy, warm, loving forever home of their own. Could you be that home they are looking for?

If one word had to describe Bella, it would be "round", but she is so much more. "Sweet" is to simple. Perhaps "endearing" would work. Thankfully, Pets Alive has plenty of words for Bella. She has quite a few words herself- mostly "meow," but we know what she's trying to say. "Feed me! Pet me! Look at me, I'm cute!" Bella is beautiful and friendly. Bella would do best as an only pet as she likes to have all the attention to herself, but she would be okay with another cat.

Handsome, delectable chocolate Jake is between 1-2yr old, likely a labX, fully vetted and healthy ...ready for a home. This sweet dog was saved from a Southern kill shelter and deserves to spend the rest of his life in a loving home where his happy disposition and playful nature will fit in. Jake may be good with calm dogs (M&G needed) but would love to be a cherished only pup as well. We don't know what in his history has caused him to fear small children, but he doe, unfortunately, not a home with kids for Mr Jake.

Gambit is a big chunk of love male Pittie mix. He's under 1 year old. He loves to play, especially with squeaky toys. He already knows his sit and paw commands. Gambit is a big boy and can be on the strong side, so he'd do best with older children. He'd prefer a home without cats.
Gambit is part of our training program and is learning his commands and manners. Come meet him!
