Adoption Corner!
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.

Thunder had a hard time adjusting to life at Pets Alive 
at first, but he's much improved. He realized that people aren't as bad as he once thought. He loves being scratched behind his ears. He loves to snuggle under a clean blanket or roll around on a fresh sheet. Laser lights, treats and naps are also on the list of Thunder's Favorite Things. His senior buddies Dottie and Jilly love to curl up with him on the couch. Thunder would do best in a home with other cats and a little patience while he adjusts to a new environment.

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!
