Meadow is an 11-year old female and is an absolute love! She gets along with other cats and adores people. She has the cutest and quietest meow. She loves being pet, brushed and scratched, but don't let her age and quiet demeanor fool you -- she's still VERY active and loves to play, too! Make an appointment to meet her. It will be love at first sight!

Ralphie Boy is 43 bouncing pounds of pure puppy happiness!

Ralphie is about 9 months old, boxer mixed with this, that and another thing. He has a lustrous golden red coat, white legs, and a black “mask”. His nose and mouth, nature couldn’t decide on pink or black. All combined, he is strikingly handsome and unique.

Not only does he have the looks, he has the brains to boot! In just over a week Ralphie is mastering the commands: sit, down, watch, wait, roll over, come and even how to play fetch.

And fun! He’s ready to play, bounce and join you in your active life. Due to his age and enthusiasm, Ralphie’s forever family will have older children.

Visit and “like” our FB page. Send an inquiry from this listing or use FB messenger to request an adoption application. This people-pleasing puppy is waiting to meet you!

Meet Tasha. This sweet 6-year old was rescued from being used for target practice by hunting dogs. Instead, she was brought to FUR.

Now, she's ready for a home of her own. She's very loving...well, to humans. After what she's been through, she really needs her own home with no other cats, dogs or even kids. If you can offer her this, please make an appointment to meet her.

Sweet Sunshine came to the rescue after being hit by a car and she had a severely broken jaw on both sides - after extensive surgery and many months of rehab this girl is 100% now and is ready to find a family to call her own. She is estimated to be under 2 years old. She is a lean 50 pounds. She does great with other dogs. We would recommend a home without cats as she does like to chase them a little too much. We would also recommend a home without small children as her nick name is Jumpy because when she plays and gets excited, she jumps around like a kangaroo and could knock smaller kids down by accident. She is housebroken and crate trained. She walks well on a leash and loves to go for rides in the car and does great in the car. She would make an excellent hiking companion but also likes to snuggle.

Lilo is a friendly puppers who has lived in a home with other dogs previously! She is a playful girl who is full of the happy dog bounces but does tend to tire out easily. You may have noticed her lovely lady lumps and she probably isn't shy about hanging around your dining table. We think that with a proper diet in her new home she should be able to slim down a bit! Lilo loves chasing after tennis balls and will even occupy herself with toys if she has to (but who wouldn't want to play with her??)!

Our beautiful Nessa girl did not live a great life before coming to the rescue. She was used as a bait dog and came to us with many scars to prove her past was horrible. She also had a significant eye injury that required us to remove her eye and left her partially blind in the other eye - but does this stop this girl from being one of the most loving and loyal dogs every - no - she is the epitome of a rescue dog that shows every day how thankful she is for being rescued. While she has made progress being around other dogs we feel the best and safest fit for Nessa is a home where she can be the only dog as she deserves the full attention from her humans. Because her vision is impaired we do not think a home with small children would be a good fit for Nessa but she would love to cuddle in an older childs lap.

Gary is officially in retirement and he is looking for his next journey in life in a home of his very own! This guy is as laid back as it gets and we know his 'inner Gary' is just aching to have a Hawaiian shirt sippin' on tuna juice, sprawled out in a beam of sunlight somewhere. Among just being a terrific tabby, Gary is also a magnificent manx that we just can't get enough of his nubbit tail! He was originally a stray cat so his life before he landed with us is a bit of a mystery. Gary is currently living it up in a foster home and getting spoiled like he deserves to be but he really is in the market for a family. Some perks about living with Gary: he really isn't an 'in your face' kind of cat, he won't raid your pantry late at night, he isn't much of a talker so he will appreciate the peacefulness that comes with silence and he is past his part animal stage.
