Adopt this dog, Coltrane.

Howdy there! My name is Coltrane. I am a very colorful big and lean 4 year old boy. I am a country boy who would like giving city living a try, or I could be content to continue living in the country.

What it boils down to is that I need a home, and not just any home, mind you. I want a good home; one with someone who will go on walks with me, let me live with them in the house so we can laugh and cry as we watch television, one with a soft bed to sleep on and good food to eat.

I have a whole lot of love and joy to give and it is eating me up not having anyone to share this with! Just come to the shelter and see all of my pretty markings and pet my long soft floppy ears and look into my big brown eyes and tell me you don't want me, ha, I dare you!

Come on down to the shelter and set a spell with me,

Adopt this cat, Godiva.

Hello, my name is Godiva. I am a very nice and sweet black and white, long haired girl, who came in to the shelter with such a wild and unruly hairdo, that I had to be shaved!

I am now beautiful and ready for a home with a nice soft bed to lounge on. I would also like lots of nice petting, soothing talking, and to also share in some fun laughter and games. I am so cute with my little mustache, don't worry, in cat both boys and girls can have mustaches and still be cool.

So, come and take me into your home and your heart.

Hello, my name is Chaz. I am a real cool cat! I am about 2 years old, have very handsome features blended with my medium length orange tabby fur and I am a great guy! I would be super at meeting and greetings all of your friends and family and I will keep the sofa, pillows, and beds nice and warm for you so that we can snuggle together in comfort. I would like for a nice person like you to come adopt me so we can work our magic together.

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 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!
