Adoption Corner!
Bellona is a young female cat that was rescued recently along with 3 other felines. All four felines had one thing in common - congenital leg deformities. All of Bellona's feline mates have now been adopted but Bellona is still awaiting her forever home. Her hind legs are bent inwards and appear that she is in a permanent yoga position - however this does not inhibit her form scooting around our free-range shelter. She uses the litter box, plays with the other kitties and has a wonderful personality. Won't you open your home to this special kitty?

Bambi is a beautiful 6-year-old terrier mix. She has been here at ARF for way too long. She is a staff favorite, and for all the best reasons. She is affectionate and lives to please! Bambi radiates love and all she wants is her own human to share it with. She is super active and would enjoy an active home; she is also quite the cuddler. If her smile alone doesn't win you over, her personality will! This housebroken, obedience trained, outgoing gal needs a home!
