Adoption Corner!
Jefferson is a very sweet, lovable Pit mix eight to ten months old. When we went to neuter him, the doctor heard a significant murmur of his heart. His neuter was postponed and he was sent for an echocardiogram to figure out what was going on. He has a congenital defect of his pulmonary valve and needs to have surgery. Then he'll be able to live a normal life (should not need any medications or further treatment). Without the surgery, he can go into heart failure at any time. Help keep this pup alive and donate today!

Kierra is a young, shy cat. Pets Alive knows she's going to warm up sooner rather than later. She's already so much friendlier than when she first came to Pets Alive! She doesn't hide anymore and is getting used to being petted. She'll be cuddling with you in no time! And she'll do even better once she's in a home and there aren't so many other cats around. We hope you can find the room in your heart and home to take in this sweet girl and help her figure out that she is safe and loved.

 Tigerlily is a cute, medium sized pup who is about three years old. She is very sweet and excited to be out of a cage and with people. She wiggles all over with joy. This girl just wants to snuggle people all day long. She tested great with both cats and dogs. She'd do well with kids 5 and up. Please ask to see her out of the cage to see her true loving personality.

Cali is a happy, friendly Pit mix who is about five years old. She is now our longest resident. Poor Cali has watched countless numbers of her friends come in and get adopted.

Cali loves people and toys. Cali DOES along with other dogs but prefers not to share her toys with other canines so she would prefer to be the only dog. She tested well with cats and does well with children. She's been waiting over two years and her adoption fee is paid for and goes home with a bed, food, toys and treats, collar and leash.
