The Shankwiler family stopped by Petsmart when we were there with adoptable dogs and noticed Buford (tan shepherd). They were impressed with his calm demeanor and even though they weren’t in the market for a new dog, thought he might make a good friend for their dog Bella who has some anxiety issues. Bella met Buford and sparks flew — the good kind! Buford, Bella and the whole family are very happy and feel Buford was a great addition. Thank you for adopting!!!!

From homeless to happy. Hulk, now called Hank, got a loving set of people-parents and two canine companions out of this deal. It’s rewarding to help our community’s homeless animals this way. Thank you for supporting adoption!
Hit by a car and taken to be put to sleep, Orion’s defied the odds several times already in his short life of 14 months! We took him in and nursed him back to health, though too much time had passed to mend his hurt back leg. Nothing extinguishes the light in this little guy’s…
