Barely Used Pets (dog)

Meet Socrates, a one-year-old Airedale Mix who came to us from another shelter. He will need some work with house-training, but he is a smart boy and will catch on quickly. He is a very happy boy and he loves to play! He does not seem to know a stranger. He will be neutered and he is up to date on his vaccinations. His adoption fee is $175.

Meet Sarabi, a 1- to 2-year-old Great Pyrenees Mix who was an unclaimed stray. She weighs 88 pounds at this time. This sweet girl is very loving, friendly, loves other dogs and seems indifferent to cats. She does keep a kennel clean, but unknown if she is house-broken. She is spayed, microchipped, dewormed, heartworm tested negative, current on vaccinations and preventions.

Meet Barlow, a wonderful 6-month-old kitten. He and his brother Jeremy (who looks just like him) are the only two left of a litter of six from this spring. They are both incredibly sweet, playful and so full of love. If you would like to come and meet them, stop by the shelter. They’ll be happy to sit and purr with you.
