Adoptable Pets of the Week

Why is pretty Patches still at our center? That’s probably because Patches, a 2-year-old miniature poodle, can’t hold her bladder. This doesn’t stop Patches from being a sunny sweetheart who adores people and other dogs. What Patches needs now is a special person who doesn’t mind dealing with doggy diapers and a little extra grooming. In return, Patches will love her adopter for many years to come!

Amos is famous at our center for being a volunteer and staff favorite. Don’t let his tough-guy looks fool you, Amos is a lover, not a fighter! This 8-year-old Boxer mix adores people, but can be selective about other canines, so he might be best as the only dog in the home. Amos is a low-to-medium energy boy who likes going for walks, but enjoys a good nap just as much. This mellow fellow will make a great best friend!

Looking for a lively pal? Lily, a 2-year-old gray and white bull terrier mix, is your girl! She enjoys long walks, jogging and playing ball in the yard. Once her energy is spent, however, Lily is happy to be your lounge buddy, chilling by your side as you enjoy a nap or the big game on TV. Lily is very affectionate with people, but not great with other pets, so she’d like to be your one and only.
