There is only one thing we love more than welcoming all the furry four leggeds that come in the door, and that is to watch them go out the door to their forever home. Four paws up to Polly, our orange polydactyl resident who purred her way right into the purrfect home. We’ll miss you, window kitty.

Four paws to the three canines who were reunited with their worried humans. Please remember to chip your pet or keep current info on their tag or collar. And a sad goodbye to Coco, the cat, who lived a long and loving life.

Cole is a young male border collie that was abandoned by his people in Idyllwild, to fend for himself. He is friendly with other canines, and felines and of course all two-leggeds. He knows a few basic commands, and is good on the leash.

Lola was saved from an irresponsible human. She is a one-year-old Chihuahua weighing only 4 pounds. With her tiny squeak, and pleading brown eyes, she knows now that she has hands of love around her.

Twiggy is a female declawed domestic sweetheart. She prefers to be the only feline in the house, is litter box trained, and welcomes your warm touch. Twiggy lost her human, and is ready to move on.

Girl Scout kitties
And our furry “girl scout” kitties will bring giggles and warmth to your heart. Under mama Sky’s watchful eye, of course, they are learning proper manners, along with important skills. All kitties will be available for adoption next week.
