Hello, my name is Blade. I am a very tall, lean, deep chested, fun guy. I am about 2 years old, soft brown with a darker saddle, and soft eyes to set off my good looks and tender heart. I think I may have shepherd in me, and I am hoping to accompany someone as they jog, walk,  horseback ride, you name it! I am built for speed, but I am also very capable of sitting down with my people and relaxing.

I would like to have a home with someone who will keep me and love me, and take great care of me for the rest of my life. That is how dogs are supposed to be treated and in return, we will give you unconditional love, lots of fun memories, and pure joy of life.

Hello, my name is Mademoiselle Meow. I am a very cute little tabby girl. I am full grown, but the size of a 6 month old kitten. I love to give tender kisses, to be held, to sit on laps, and to rub up against nice people.

I am a little shy, but I really shine when someone caring picks me up and talks to me. I can't wait to have that special someone to take me home and whisper sweet nothings to me, give me treats and toss some little toys around for me to chase. I will be sure to shower that person with love and attention. I will greatly appreciate your consideration in taking me on as your beloved companion.

Meows and laps,

Mademoiselle Meow

Hello, my name is Calypso. I am a very pretty little 4 year old Calico girl. I have nice long fur and a very sweet face, just look at it! Don't I look sweet? I am gentle, calm, and deserve a new and good life with someone who will pet me, brush me, and love me. I will be very happy to sit on my people's laps and cuddle and knead their lap with my gentle foot motion. I can't wait to have the chance of forming an unbreakable bond with someone and becoming a mutually happy companion for them.

Purrs and pats,

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.


Did you know?

We have cats and kittens for adoption at the Arnold PetSmart.. These cats are housed at here 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!
