Pete is a large and lanky orange and white tabby cat. His right ear is folded over, giving him a distinctive appearance. Pete is very verbal and can be demanding of attention. He is also quite affectionate and not shy at all when visitors arrive. He loves laps and loves to be brushed but hates to have his nails trimmed. He will occasionally get excited and bite, but this behavior has improved since he moved in with us. Over time he has found a way to get along with our 4 other cats, but he has demonstrated some territoriality by spraying. He has been an indoor-only cat since moving in with us in 2017, and he shows no interest in getting outside.

Maia is a lovely DSH dilute tortie. She is very soft and very loving. She LOVES her humans. She loves to groom them and cuddle up. She is picky about her housemates but does well with small dogs. She would do best if she had a person all to herself, but could do well with another cat depending on personality (the other cat in her home sometimes intimidates her). She is only being rehomed due to a moving situation.

Vinni

He is a very sweet indoor dog, and he does not bark. He loves to go on walks and run on grass! Without leash, he is good and will stay loyal by your side, but loud cars would scare him a little. He responds when called by his name, "Vinni". His favorite games to play are tug-of- war and fetch! He loves his ball toy! Although he does not bark, he whimpers occasionally when he seeks for attention and company. He gets along with other pets and people of all ages. He enjoys company, especially sitting by your side with his head resting on your lap for naps. At home, he does not run or jump often, he saves his energy for his walks and outside play time. He is fully potty trained, leash trained, and he does not bite. His rabies shot is up-to-date through July 2020.

Finn

Finn came to live with us about six months ago, because a friend found him abandoned on the street. While we had hoped to be Finn's forever home, he just doesn't mesh with the pets already in our household.

Finn came to live with us about six months ago, because a friend found him abandoned on the street. While we had hoped to be Finn's forever home, he just doesn't mesh with the pets already in our household. He is a very sweet, snuggly, and playful young dog who gets along well with other dogs (especially those larger than him). He does have prey drive with smaller dogs or cats, so a home where he is the smallest pet would be ideal. He is crate trained, and walks well with the Wonderloop leash. He will bark to "defend the house," but will settle with reassurance. Finn is a high-energy boy who would benefit from lots of play or walk time - but he also loves to be a couch potato, and is happy to cuddle up and nap. While Finn may need some extra attention from an experienced owner / trainer, it's clear that he has the potential to be the perfect companion. We're so sad to see him go, but we know his perfect home is waiting for him. If you think that might be you, please reach out today!

Crunchwrap is a sweetheart of a dog. He knows lots of tricks, heels on walks, and loves to cuddle. Looking for an experienced dog adopter who can work with him on his training. He needs to be in a home that does not have children or other pets. He needs training to work through his fear issues. He is making progress with reactions to cats, mailmen, and large dogs. He does not do well in large groups of people, and he has some mild separation anxiety.
Crunchwrap likes cuddling, practicing his tricks, and long walks to the park. Crunchwrap just had a full checkup and found to be in excellent health! He is house-trained as well.
Crunchwrap needs to go to a home in a mellow, low-key area with experienced dog owners and no children due to his fear. He has a heart of gold, but he has some issues he needs to work through with someone who has the time to devote to the training. He is generally very well behaved and so lovable!
