Adopting a Senior Pet can be quite rewarding.  We often have pets that are over 7 years, which is  considered Senior for dogs and 8 years is considered Senior for cats.  We have found that these pets still have a lot of life in them and they are so appreciative to have a new home.  You will be so happy if you adopt a Senior, you don't have to put up with that puppy or kitten rambunctiousness!  Senior pets are secure with themselves and are happy just to be with you and be a part of your family.

Fred is a 7 year old male Akita.  Fred, Wilma (who has been adopted) and 5 of their puppies were relinquished by their breeder owner because she couldn't afford to care for them any longer.  Fred is very sweet and quiet and house trained.  He has a lot of energy and is very friendly.  

Mrs. T is a 10 year old female.  Her owners are moving and can no longer keep her so Mrs. T was relinquished to the shelter.  Mrs. T is chipped   She is making friends at the shelter and the staff is singing her praises.  She will make a nice quiet addition to your household.


So, please check out our seniors and see if you might give one of them a chance at a good life with your family.  Their time is precious and they will love you for sharing that time with them.


From time to time we take in an animal that has "Special Needs" and we will post that animal here.  Always that pet becomes very "special" to us here at the shelter and we can assure you that pet will also become very "special" to you, if you decide to adopt.  We hope that when we post that pet on this page, you will consider giving that pet a chance.

Trolly is a 6 month old female.  She came to the shelter with Pritty because the owner had too many cats that were dumped on her.  Trolly was initially pretty shy but has come a long way.  She is very easy going.  Recently Trolly spiked a really high fever and now has some neurological issues and shakes a bit.  But she is still her sweet self.  She is just waiting for a forever home where she can hang out and be loved.
