Here’s Dixon, a 2-year-old, male, Yellow Labrador-mix dog. Dixon is a loveable, people-loving, friendly and playful dog, with a sweet face and a rosy nose. He was found on the corner of Turkey Trot and Neck Road. Dixon has had some training and he needs a good forever home.


Meet Carl our European shorthair mix cat. Carl is a 2-year-old male with a gorgeous coat of pale cinnamon, buff and cream tabby. His huge round eyes are bright and golden. Carl has a playful and loving nature. He is undemanding and requires little grooming, but he does love to be brushed and cuddled.
