Callie 2 16aD

Callie 2 16bDDawn wrote,  We first saw Daisy on your website and fell in love. When we arrived, she was in a visiting room with another family, but I saw her look at me. When the other family left without her, we jumped at the chance to meet her. She was even more wonderful than we expected!   Calliope, or Callie as we call her, has been with us for just over a month and has made herself at home. She loves snuggling up on the sofa, playing with all her new toys, and going to the dog park. I'm not sure if it is the car ride or the park she loves more! Thank you for the honor of adopting this wonderful addition to our family.

Trudie wrote,   We adopted Buttons, who now has the name Echo, 2 weeks ago. He's the softest bunny you can imagine. He is also very sweet and likes to run around the house whenever he gets a chance. He eats all of his vegetables and is a happy and healthy bunny. We are so glad we were able to adopt him and give him a furever home.

Denise wrote,  Cooper came to the shelter along with his litter of sisters. We fell in love with him right away. He's not home and adjusting well. He loves to play with his toys, knows a few commands and tricks, and is doing great on house and crate training. He and cat are getting along, although she does chase him around from time to time (she is doing it out of frustration, he just thinks she playing so it works outs). He is such a cuddle bug, too. When it's time for bed, he doesn't complain and is usually asleep before we are. 

Bruno 2 16D

Bruno's doing okay, he's pretty happy. Super energetic which gets him into trouble sometimes. He's a very curious and very smart. He's got plenty of toys and bones. We're still working on his biting/nibbling problem.

Rhonda wrote, Chloe is such a sweet and energetic dog! She loves to play with my other dog who is 10 years old. He is now more active because of her. I bring her with me to the retirement home where I work every day and the residents love her as well! I would definitely recommend adopting your next pet

Charlotte wrote, Miss Penny has been a part of our family for 3 weeks now. I had my eye on her for 2 weeks while my husband was offshore. The first weekend he was back home we went into CAPS to meet her and it was love at first sight! She fits in perfectly in her new home and her and our cat are now the best of friends, literally. She loves walks, toys, and is obsessed with belly rubs! Thanks for our perfect pup, she’s already loved by many. 

Gracie 2 15C

Gina wrote, When we adopted Gracie she was antisocial and could not be bothered with us. But after two weeks she was following us through the house and begging for attention. Although she is a little larger (15 lbs, to be exact) we love her so much. She is now happily living out her senior days with the companionship of Minnie.

Stephanie wrote, My Husband (Theo) and I had been searching for a puppy to expand our family for about 6 months when we saw Indy's profile. We istantly thought this might be the little boy we're looking for. My husband agreed to go and meet Indy that next day. Well, it was love at first sight! We adopted him on the spot. We have now had Indy for 1 month now, and he is FULLY integrated into our lives. We love our goofy, energetic cuddle bug!
