Barely Used Pets (dog)

Meet Lowery, a 3-year-old Pit Mix. He came to us as a stray. Lowery is a very friendly boy and he is so happy. He loves everyone he meets. Lowery is heartworm positive and we are currently treating him for that. We would love to see this sweet boy find his forever home. He gets along with most dogs, but he has not been tested with cats. Lowery will be neutered after he has completed him heartworm treatment. He is up to date on his vaccinations. Come out and meet Lowery!

PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Meet Hugo, a 3-year-old neutered male as friendly as can be. He had been an outside kitty who greeted everyone who came to the shelter. He has decided to make his way inside now and has gotten promoted to “office manager” and he’s loving it! He gets along with all of the other cats and kittens. He likes to play and is going to do well in just about any home.

She is a very sweet and gentle girl. Dixie knows simple commands and will do anything for a treat. She does want to be the only dog in the home. Dixie is housebroken. She is spayed, microchipped, dewormed, heartworm tested negative and current on preventions and vaccinations.
