Skye, the mama calico, and her five kittens will be available for adoption soon. Pictures next week! Several ARF angels found them at the girl scout camp struggling to survive. Safe and warm at the ARF house, they each wear a badge of courage.

Lulu is a young female shepherd/Lab mix. Anxious to please, she is quick to learn her new commands. Gentle as a lab, she shows the wisdom of a shepherd. Lulu will be at ARF Saturday and Sunday, or call for apppointment. This girl will be adopted in the blink of her gorgeous eyes.

Polly, our polydactyl, Sweetpea, the mainecoon mix, and Blackjack, the tux, are wondering why they are still orphans. All good cats, each with their own personalities, they will be the purr-fect pet for winter and forever. And as the sun goes down this fall, you will wonder how you ever lived without your pet.

Riley prefers the ride in the car, windows down, of course. She is a young female german shepherd mix, full of energy. All four paws are ready to go for the walk too, as she is very good on the leash. Reily would prefer an energetic, balanced home as she is still learning commands. With pride, she wears her pack, always eager for a hike.
