Big guy Cooper is looking for a quiet home. He’d like cat trees to climb, boxes to sleep in, and toys to play with – especially the interactive types like wand toys.

Ginger is a beautiful, independent cat who is looking for a new home. She’s lived with children as young as three years old since she was a kitten so she is certainly used to their antics! Dogs are okay with Ginger, too, but not all cats. A very slow introduction to any resident pets will ease the transition for everyone. Like many cats, she does not enjoy being put in a carrier so we recommend you set it out a few days before any travel with some delicious treats inside. Ginger is one smart cookie, but it might work!

Sparkle is a lovely hound dog that is very friendly and loves everyone. She is a hound dog mix so anyone looking at her should know they have a powerful sense of smell and great speed. Hounds are used to having lots of energy and a job. Sparkle has shown us that she needs lots of room to burn off her energy. She will need a secured fenced yard and no apartments. She will need some obedience training and a meet and greet with any resident dogs. She may chase cats, so a proper introduction with a dog savvy cat would be needed.
