Meet Gracie, our Golden Retriever-mix.  She is eight-years old, weighs 60-pounds, and has a soft golden coat. Her expressive face smiles with warmth and genuine affection. She is a friendly and outgoing girl.

Gracie was surrendered by her owner who says Gracie is a runner, a challenge to contain and they just couldn’t keep her any more. Gracie is a very sweet and loving dog, but gets very excited around children. Gracie is fully vetted and in need of a good and loving home.


You’ll be dancing when you meet our loveable cat, named Alley. She is an 18-month old, domestic shorthair, diluted Calico with pastel colors of apricot, pewter and pristine white. She readily displays her affection by touching your hand with her dainty white paw, and your heart with her huge green eyes. Alley loves to be held and cuddled and she will engage you in conversation. She’s a real chatterbox.  Bringing much joy and companionship, Alley will make a wonderful addition to your good forever home.
