Follow your gut


I went to a shelter to meet a different cat, but my boy, who was originally called "Fuzzy Wuzzy," made me fall in love with him... follow your gut!

From scared to cared for


I met Motor at the animal shelter where I used to volunteer on the weekends. He was a very scared little Kitty and I felt so sorry I felt that I just had to bring him home. When I went back to the shelter with my husband, he fell in love with Motor as well and the rest is history.

Love at first website


My family adopted Dakota at a shelter. We saw her on the shelter website and wanted to meet her in person. We instantly fell in love. Adoption is a great way to provide homes to dogs in need. I highly recommend finding your new best friend at an animal shelter.

A happy handful


We first met Bella as a tiny puppy who didn't even have her eyes open yet. She fit into the palm of our hand. We visited her once more with our rescued dog Sophie so she could bond. When she was old enough we brought her home & she followed Sophie everywhere.
