Featured Pet: Lucy


Do you find yourself looking for love in all the wrong places? Look no further – Lucy is ready and waiting to be your furry Valentine for the rest of her days! Like most first dates, your first meeting with our Lucy may be a bit awkward, but with some treats, love, and a little bit of time, we are certain that she’ll steal your heart with her snuggly personality and adorable little face. And trust us when we tell you – everybody really does love Lucy!

At 4 years old, this petite pit bull/lab mix has quite the personality and makes us laugh daily with her antics. In the warm weather, Lucy is happiest splashing around in just about any body of water she can find. Whether walking in the woods or hanging out on the front patio, Lucy is sure to find some kind of water oasis to cool off in! And if it’s too chilly for swimming, you can find her happily playing with one of her many boyfriends at the Sanctuary in the play yard or chasing after her enormous egg in the snow! This is one pup who would certainly benefit from a fenced-in yard, as she isn’t quite confident about taking long walks with people she doesn’t know too well.

Once she is comfortable with people, Lucy is the most snuggly, lovable little lady, but it can take her some time to warm up to strangers. She would love a calm, adult home with humans who understand and appreciate her quirks and give her the confidence she lacks in some situations. Lucy has been with us for quite a while now and we just know her perfect match is out there somewhere! Could you be the one for this lovely girl?


Featured Pet: Albus


Albus is a one-of-a-kind who is sure to steal your heart!

This handsome, snuggly cat is mellow, laid-back, and absolutely obsessed with his food! He loves people, especially once he gets to know them, and will stand at his door and ask politely for some cuddle time on your lap if he’s feeling particularly snuggly. He can take some time to warm up to new people, but once you are in his circle, you’re in it for life!

Although he is low-key, Albus does enjoy the occasional interactive play session. He can be enticed with feather toys and interactive games if he’s in the mood and it is fun to watch him stalk and pounce! Albus would do best as the only pet in his forever home, as other animals tend to make him a little nervous, but he has more than enough love and personality to go around.

At 10 years of age, Albus is a happy boy despite dealing with some medical issues. He has been diagnosed with Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease, meaning that at times, he struggles with some incontinence and has a history of urinary tract issues. This can be easily managed with a special diet and medication and Albus has shown great improvements since coming into our program. Albus had a bit of a rough patch before moving into our Sanctuary, but has truly blossomed into a wonderful, social, and lovable cat who is so deserving of a loving, patient home to call his own! Could you be his perfect match?


Featured Pet: Dexter


Dexter is a handsome, active Hound/Lab mix looking for a very special home. He adores his people and is loving and affectionate with those that he knows. He can be a bit nervous in new situations, but enjoys human interaction and even gets along well with other dogs.

Dexter has been diagnosed with a liver condition, but is happy and healthy with a well-managed diet and some medication.

At 6 years of age, this is one active, athletic pup who adores playing fetch and goes crazy for balls and Frisbees! Overall, he is a happy-go-lucky guy who enjoys going to doggy daycare where he has lots of puppy and human friends. He would love to go for long walks and hikes with you and is sure to become your very best friend. Best of all, Dexter is a huge snuggle bug and is sure to keep you warm and cozy on these cold winter nights!

Dexter is one sweet, special boy who is so deserving of finding his perfect match. What better time of year to find your puppy soulmate than the Holiday season? Could you be just the person he’s been looking for?



Featured Pets: Hazel and Pippi

Hazel and Pippi

Hazel and Pippi are an absolutely gorgeous and equally sweet mother/daughter pair. These lovely ladies are so affectionate, quirky, and full of personality, we just can’t believe they’ve been waiting so long to find their forever home!They both love visitors, interactive games, and hanging out on their catio - which they keep mouse-free with their impeccable hunting skills!

Hazel and Pippi came to live at our Sanctuary after being raised by a lovely rescuer (who continues to foster Pippi’s sister, Amelia, who is also looking for a forever home through our rehoming program). They settled right in and quickly became a staple at our Sanctuary, always welcoming guests with their sweet faces and adorable personalities.

Though they are a pair, Hazel and Pippi have their own little quirks that make them that much more lovable! Hazel will greet just about anyone who walks into the room by hopping up on the counter for extra pets and lots of love – especially if there is food involved. And if she’s in the mood for a fun ride, she’ll climb right onto your shoulders for a quick spin around the kitchen! Pippi is a bit more reserved than Hazel, though she is equally affectionate. She loves to be pet and enjoys playing with string toys and in cardboard boxes.

Pippi is one healthy, active girl, but she does have a neurological disorder called Cerebellar Hypoplasia, which impacts her gait and causes her to bump her head from time to time – but don’t worry, she’s perfectly happy with her life and has no idea that she’s any different from any of the other kitties! Hazel and Pippi are truly a special pair who are so incredibly deserving of their forever home. We know their perfect match is out there waiting and even though we’ll miss them, we can’t wait for the day when they find their very own family!
