Meet Rowena!  


Looking for a loveable lady to bask in the sun with you? Well, I'm your gal!  My name is Rowena and I am looking for my furever family.  I love getting nice, long pets while relaxing in the sunlight!  Bird watching from the window is my favorite hobby.  I can be a bit quiet but, I still love getting my daily head scratches.  So please come by and relax with me so that I can become a part of your family!

Meet Boone!

Hi, I'm Boone!
You're not mistaken I only have 3 legs. I'm a sweet young guy who loves to play with toys. I had to have my leg amputated after a bad injury that was left without vet attention. I'm so happy to be able to run around again. Don't worry, what I'm missing in legs I make up for with love. I love everyone I meet! Come meet me and take home a tri-pawed pup!
