Hurray! Jake, the Lab-mix, has found his forever loving home.

critters-Bo Introducing Atticus and Bo, the newest kitty additions to the ARF cattery. Atticus, the orange and Bo the gray, are 6-week-old brothers. Abandoned without their mom, they are in a special kitty nursery with all the special attention as if their mom was there. Soon, visitation will be at the ARF house. Be assured, for now, they are being socialized and fed appropriately for their age.

Pipen is a 6-year-old male Bischon/poodle-mix. He walks well on the leash and is good with other small dogs. No problem with the feline crowd. He is house-trained and would critters-Atticuslove to have a female companion. Not a barker.

Lefty Lou is a 10-year-young Jack Russell terrier. She loves to bask in the California sun, go for leash walks, and bring smiles and laughter to your life. She is spayed, up-to-date on all shots and house-trained. She enjoys the great outdoors, but for the most part, she will want to be by your chair. This girl is still young at heart and healthy, and OK with the

Rhett and Gatsby are back in the house! Things didn’t meow out, and now we are back to having kitten fun. About 5 months old, they are male stepbrothers. Rhett is quite a bit more investigative than Gatsby. Each has his very own lovable personality. Why not stop by and see which one fits into your heart? They would love to be adopted together to critters-rhett-and-gatsbyhave a playmate. As much as we love having them back to give us hours of laughter, we would love to see them both in a loving home. They are not allowed outside.
