While he may seem a bit shy at first, Tucker is the happiest little guy once he gets to know you! Tucker loves to play and fetch balls, but once he’s tired out, Tucker is ready to relax with his favorite people. He’s a connoisseur of doggie treats, and milk bones seem to be his favorite so far!

Cookie is a sweet older lady with an easygoing attitude. She lives life on the slow side, and we’re happy to follow her lead! She seems to get along with other dogs just fine, her friend Mufasa can vouch for that! Cookie enjoys lap time above all things, and we’ve learned that she’ll do anything you want for a treat.

Buster is all about living it up in his golden years by having tons of fun!He’s a friendly guy who’ll greet everyone at the gate of his kennel with a wagging tail. We’ve found that he likes to sit on laps and lay around in the AC with people. Buster is really attached to Cookie, so we’d love for them to be adopted out together!


1 year, male

Ron is never without a reason to nap. Whether it’s in his comfy bed or on top of his brother, Harry, Ron is happy to relax. He does act a bit shy around new people but once you start petting him, he comes around pretty quickly.  Ron is not a fan of dogs so he would require a slow introduction if his adoptive family has a dog in the house.


1 year, male

This sweet boy is named Harry! He’s extremely friendly and will greet everyone at the door of his kitty condo. He loves to chase and play but his favorite kind of game is hunting a fake mouse toy! Harry will rub against your legs and sit in your lap for hours, his purr can be heard throughout the shelter.
