Dog Adoption

If you are interested in adopting Huck or Finn, please contact us by submitting the form below. You can also see much more video and imagery on our Instagram and Facebook sites.

These two brothers are puppies from a litter of 9, with the mother being a pure white German Sheperd and the father being predominantly white German Sheperd with a “possible little bit of Husky”.

They are both sweet and affectionate, and they are intelligent and learning new things quickly. They are skiddish and shy but becoming more secure and confident with training and more socialization.

Cat Adoption

We are working with a rescue group that has just rescued a family of kitties: (2) six-week old kittens, (1) five-month old kitty and (2) 1-yr old kitties.
