Cat of the Month



Meet Jasper!
Jasper was found as a stray and came to the shelter with a few scratches and scabs from his time on the streets. At first, he was unsure of people, but over time, he has blossomed into a sweet and affectionate cat. 

Jasper's unique feature is his tiny kitten-like meow that does not match his adult cat body. It's both endearing and adorable, and will surely put a smile on your face every time you hear it.

Jasper is looking for an adopter who can provide him with a safe and loving home, plenty of treats and pets, and lots of playtime and attention. Give Jasper the chance he deserves and make him a part of your family today!

Dog of the Month



Meet Elsa, a two-year-old husky mix with a heart as big as her fluffy coat!
Now, we know what you're thinking: "Elsa? Wasn't that the name of the princess in Frozen?" Well, we can assure you that this Elsa is just as enchanting, but without any icy powers (that we know of, anyway). She's a loving and loyal companion who will steal your heart faster than you can sing "Let It Go."

Elsa is a social butterfly and will happily greet everyone she meets with a wagging tail and a smile on her face. She's a firm believer that there's no such thing as too much attention, and she'll gladly nude your hands to get them.

One thing you should know about Elsa is that she loves to play. Whether it's fetch, tug-of-war, or just running around in the yard, she's always up for a good time. She's got plenty of energy to burn, so she'll make a great companion for anyone who loves to be active.
