Curious about our furry friends in our picture? 

Max is a 5 year old tan chi that came into our care as a stray. He can be a little shy at first but warms up quickly with some gentle petting and yummy treats. He is pretty mellow and enjoys cuddling. He walks very nicely on leash and enjoys the company of other polite pooches. He is currently available for adoption, and his Animal Identification number is A965327

Dino is a 4 year old black chi, who also came into our care as a stray. He is very outgoing, friendly, and loves cuddling. He walks super politely on leash and also enjoys the company of other polite pooches. He, too, is currently available for adoption, and his Animal Identification number is A967008. 

Animal Services is currently having their annual “Home for the Holidays” Adoption Promotion with all pet adoption fees $15 through January 3rd. We would love for each our furry friends to go home and celebrate the holidays with a new, forever family!!
