Reily’s bags are packed, bones included, and she is ready to go. A true hiker’s dream, Reily has great energy on the trail, and on a leash. Hide and seek is her favorite game whether it’s a rock or her favorite toy. Reily’s focus comes naturally, and everything else she learns is just gravy — in the bowl, that is.

Duke is a senior chow chow with a heart that will beat just for your friendship. With unconditional love at its truest, Duke just needs a loving home with you as his human partner. Nights are his favorite, as he lays near the fire, or even better, at your feet, knowing that you will be at his side in the morning.

All dressed up in his tux, Blackjack is a young male tuxedo. Calm, house trained, and good with other felines, and canines. Blackjack still has a little kitty in him when it comes to playtime, and enough maturity to know the rules.

Sweet Pea
Sweet Pea is an adult maine coon mix that was abandoned on the ARF front porch. She’s over that now, and is all about curling up with a warm blanket. She is lonely for that special lap however that will remind her of why she purrs.
