Trenton is doing great! He’s a very intelligent boy.  He sleeps all night in the kennel and is really sweet!!

Marley is doing great! She is very vocal and loves attention from anyone. She can be a little sassy when people pet her in ways she doesn’t like, but that is something I have gotten used to very quickly. She loves to get chin scratches, and her favorite toy is a little stuffed mouse! Thank you so much for helping me find my new best friend.

Willow is adjusting well so far. She warmed up to me quickly and we spend most nights cuddled up ready or watching tv.  She’s also taken up bird watching! (See pictures of her big eyes).

Loki pretty much runs the house, and I cannot go on my computer without him inserting himself in there. All attention HAS to be on him. He is healthy and happy, and we love him so very much.

Oreo is doing wonderfully! He is gaining weight and gets along well with our other Pug Eddy. He is so sweet we just adore him. He has a big fenced-in yard to run and play in. He has not had any accidents and he loves his toys. Adopting Oreo has truly been a gift – he is so sweet.  Thanks again.

Max has a funny quirk – If you leave him, he goes around and makes a pile of anything he can. It’s always interesting to come home and see what his pile is made out of. Max is doing great. He loves to go for walks, and he loves to go for car rides. He does great with the grandkids and enjoys spending time with them. We love him.

I recently adopted a senior cat, Tuna – He is doing awesome! He’s so loving and is a great addition to our family.  I feel so lucky to have him.  He loves being petted and held, constantly purrs, and is always “making biscuits” with his little paws.  He’s adjusting well and starting to feel more comfortable around our dog.  Thanks for making the process so easy to adopt – We love him!
