Adopt this dog, Schatzie.

Hello, my name is Schatzie. I am a cute little 8 year old Schnauzer boy mixed with either Poodle or Scottie. I came to the shelter as a lost pet. I had recently been shaved, so I am all ready for summer! 

I am a happy guy who enjoys running, romping, playing and making people smile and laugh. I am smart, cute, and full of personality, so how about coming to the shelter to consider taking me home and happily living ever after with me.

Wiggles, smiles, and happiness,

Adopt this cat, Patti.

Hello, my name is Patti. I am a very pretty gray tabby girl with rabbit-like fur. I love to lounge around in soft beds, dreaming of listening to the nice compliments from my new family and purring to my hearts content. I sure would be more than willing to put a smile on your face, and a spring in your step, as you go about your daily business and ponder how much you love me.

Purrs and cuddles,

Adopt this cat, Godiva.


Hello, my name is Godiva and I am a very pretty black and white girl, with great flowing hair. I must admit, it was very matted when I came to the shelter, but I had a shave and a hair cut! Ha ha!

Now I am waiting for a wonderful home with someone who will laugh at my little mustache and my loving smile.

Purrs are awaiting you,

Did you know?

Did you know each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the U.S. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all of these animals. Please Spay and Neuter your pets, and help save lives and end needless suffering of these pets. We offer low-cost options for altering your pets.


We have cats and kittens for adoption at the Arnold PetSmart. These cats are housed there so that they can get more visibility in the community and have better chances at finding their forever homes!

Our dogs travel every Saturday to area PetSmarts and Petcos with our mobile adoptions.

This helps get these pups more visibility in the community, and gives them more of a chance at finding their forever homes. Please check our calendar for locations!
