Hi my name is Charlie

Charley is a 5-6 year old Pit Bull terrier mix who is looking for his forever family. Charley is a medium energy guy that enjoys a nice walk exploring the world as well as spending time relaxing for a snooze. He is great on a leash, gets along well with other dogs... See more available dogs.

Say hello to Socks

Can you understand & handle a complicated girl? Socks is one such girl. With her cloud gray fur and soulful eyes she looks at you wanting attention but she can quickly get overwhelmed. She is a talkative lady with a mind of her own & needs a confident & experienced cat person. Is that you?   See more available cats.
