Pets of the Week


Lilo is a darling B&W Pit Bull. She’s very sweet, cuddly and affectionate, and all wiggles when she sees people she knows! She's overall pretty mellow, but give her a toy or a ball and she comes to life! Check out her video to see her in action. Lilo also loves lounging around with her favorite antler bone and she loves belly rubs. She rides well in the car. She walks nicely on a leash and she knows basic commands. She keeps a clean kennel.  She’s also pretty quiet. 

Lilo is 3 years old and weighs 62 lbs. She was found as a stray. Lilo has skin allergies, and has seen a dermatologist. Her allergies are being managed well now-- the photos & video with the white background are the most recent and you can see how good her coat looks. Lilo is on special allergy vaccines, which cost ~$65 a month. The vaccines can be given at home and she gets them once a week. She’s also on an inexpensive antihistamine 2 x day (amitriptyline hydrochloride) which has made a huge difference, and apoquel 1 x day. She is on hypoallergenic food, which we haven't determined if it helps or not -- we'd recommend some type of food for dogs with allergies, though. Lilo will need regular checkups with a dermatologist & medicated baths as needed. Luckily, she loves baths! 

Lilo does need a home without dogs or cats. She likes kids. The people who found Lilo had kids and she was very good with them. 

Lilo has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms. We realize that with her special needs she won't be a good match for everyone, but she’s such a wonderful girl and she'll be a loving and fun companion for the person who gives her a chance. 


Jon  is a handsome 3 year old black kitty with tons of personality! He is super playful, silly and goofy— he has lots of energy. He loves attention and is affectionate. He likes to be held once he’s run off some energy. He loves dogs and cats and loves playing with both. Jon needs a home without young kids because he play bites when he gets all wound up, but he’d be fine around teenagers.

Jon has a neurological condition called cerebellar hypoplasia. It is a non-contagious condition that results in walking and balance problems. The part of his brain that controls fine motor skills and coordination was underdeveloped at birth. Jon walks with a high stepping gate and bobs his head back and forth when he walks. This condition is non-progressive, so he shouldn’t get any better or any worse in the future. The video we’ve posted shows Jon in action and our vet explains his condition.

Jon will need a home where he can be on one level — he’d have a difficult time navigating stairs. He also needs a home with someone who won’t trip easily. Jon loves to rub against people’s legs when they are walking and with his own unique way of walking he can easily trip you up! Our entire staff can attest to that!

Jon has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for feline leukemia. He’s such a fun guy and our staff all loves him!


Winnie is a pretty Pit Bull/Shepherd mix with the sweetest eyes and expressions. She's 3 years old. She was a very shy girl and pretty scared when we first took her in. Over time she’s really warmed up and is so much better. Once she gets to know you, Winnie is a real sweetheart and fun and silly. She loves food, so you can give her delicious treats to begin winning her over!  

Winnie lived with another dog in her previous home. She is playful and loves to play in the yard with other dogs - view her video! We'd love to find her a home with a playful dog companion. You could make an appointment to bring your dog in to meet Winnie to see if they could be buddies. Winnie likes to go for walks and enjoys our pack walks with a group of other shelter dogs. She's gone on outings to the park and done very well, and she LOVES TO SWIM! She does need a home without cats.  

Winnie will need a home with someone who is dog savvy and with no kids in the home. She will likely be protective of her home and her person so she’ll need someone who can care for a protective and shy dog in a home situation without a lot of people coming and going. She would not be a good match for someone wanting their first dog.  

Winnie has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms. She weighs about 60 lbs. She'll become a wonderful companion for the person who gives her a chance.
