Pets of the Week


Cinnamon  is a beautiful tabby and white kitty with pretty eyes. She’s very sweet and she’s a gentle girl. She is 7 years old. Cinnamon was adopted from us as a kitten but returned because her person was not home enough to care for her. She’s very mellow. She’s a little timid in new situations, but given time she'll settle in nicely. She has a sensitive stomach so we are feeding her Science Diet I/D and she does well on that. She’d do best in a quiet home. She’s not real comfortable with other cats, but she's been fine with other cats who are calm and mellow like herself and don’t want to interact a lot. Same with dogs— Cinnamon is living in our volunteer room and is fine being around dogs who are very calm and don’t bother her.  

Cinnamon has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for FIV and feline leukemia. 


Lucy & Desi are a bonded pair and they are looking for a home where they can stay together. Lucy is an 8 year old German Shepherd and Desi is 10 year old Lab/Chow. They are both very sweet dogs. Desi is blind and relies on his buddy Lucy to be his guide dog— it’s incredibly heartwarming to see them together and interact. The pair were abandoned and in bad shape. Lucy was very matted with lots of skin issues and Desi is not only blind but arthritic. They’ve done very well in their foster home and Lucy’s fur and skin is cleared up now and Desi’s health is much improved.  

Lucy has a very playful nature. She likes to bring her foster mom “gifts”— a ball, a toy or anything she finds outdoors… even a leaf! She is very affectionate and loves attention. 

imageDesi was kind of shut down and didn’t show much personality at first, but after he settled in and started feeling better and more confident he has become very affectionate and likes nothing better than getting a belly rub! His initial bloodwork showed some early stage kidney disease so he’s been on Science Diet k/d and that’s really helped. His lab results are improved and he’s not urinating nearly as much. Desi is on Galliprant for his arthritis and that’s helped him feel better, too. 

Desi and Lucy will need a home without other dogs or cats, or where they can be separated from other pets. On her own Lucy is good with other dogs, kids and cats. But she is protective of Desi around other animals, and Desi isn’t comfortable around other dogs. They’ve never been protective or aggressive towards people, but they wouldn’t be a good match for a home with young kids. They’ll need an environment where Desi will be able to navigate and without many stairs. We can also give you tips and references for living with a blind dog. Their foster mom will be traveling out of the country soon so we’ll need to find a home or other foster home for the pair soon. 

Lucy weighs 85 lbs and Desi weighs 78 lbs. Both have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms. We’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in possibly adopting or fostering this sweet pair.
