Meet Eris.  Eris is a 2 year Doberman that came to the shelter after her previous owner could no longer care for her. She is extremely gentle, outgoing and sweet and very intelligent. She already knows basic commands, is housebroken and is willing to learn new tricks. Eris would do well in a loving home that can provide her a stable environment.   You can take Eris home for just $75 with an approved application. That includes her spay, wellness exam, vaccines and microchip!

Meet Gherkin.  Gherkin is a 10 year old orange tabby that came to the shelter as a stray. This stately gentleman had a previous home as he is 4 paw declawed and is extremely outgoing. He does not know a stranger and would love nothing more than to keep your lap warm! Gherkin would do well in a quiet home, perhaps with another aging pet. He loves companionship, so he would be a perfect match for someone who is homebound and looking for the same.  You can adopt Gherkin for just $75. This includes his wellness exam, shots and microchip.
