Poor baby Narwhal is still here, still waiting for his forever home πŸ˜”

Narwhal is a nine month old coonhound that weighs about 53lbs now. He's your typical high energy puppy; he's rough and tumble, loves to wrestle, loves to bounce around, and his one speed is "zoom".

The shelter is no place for this silly, goofy puppy. He deserves so much more than what we can give him here. We really, really want to see this guy go to his forever home!

He doesn't like cats AT ALL so those are out of the question, but he LOVES other dogs. As long as any potential canine house mates can handle his zoomy behavior, they should be fine. We're asking for kids that are at least 10+ because he does like to jump and can knock down the littles. He's also still learning that hands aren't toys and can be a little mouthy, especially when excited.

He's a super friendly guy that has no problem coming up to strangers. He would do best in an active family that likes hikes, bike rides, long walks, etc. He'll have no problem keeping up!

Meet Calypso!

This gorgeous girl is a dignified, older lady at about seven years old. Found as a stray, we unfortunately don't know anything about her life before she came to us. What we do know is that she's an absolutely radiant soul that deserves all of the good things that life has to offer! Despite her age, she still fancies a good game of keep away and will chase a ball for hours (even though she doesn't really know what to do with it once she gets it).

She would do well in a home with other dogs, with cats, and with children 10+. She's got a pretty solid pull when on a leash so don't let her age fool you! When she comes up to you and greets you with a play bow, you'll immediately forget how old she is because she acts like a dog half her age.

She's a stunning Labrador retriever that weighs about 47lbs right now. She's full grown so the most that will happen is that she'll fill out once she's in a home and away from stressful shelter life!

Bonus: She's ridiculously photogenic.

Meet Furiosa!

As her name would imply, Furiosa was not a happy camper when she first came to us. She was a 2.5lb ball of...well, fury.

Now, though? Now she's a total mush.

Furiosa is about 10 weeks old and is the epitome of kitten. She's a purr machine from the moment you pick her up and all she wants to do is rub her head against your face and sit on your shoulder like a parrot. Then she's all zoomies! She's a feisty little thing that loves, loves, LOVES to play (crumpled up post-it notes are her favorite things to play with right now) and has endless energy.

Since she's a kitten, she'll most likely to adjust well to nearly any home, whether it be with other cats or dogs. We would hold off on itty bitty children (under 5yo) just because she is super feisty and might be too much for the little ones.

Meet Daffodil, Primrose, and Tulip!

These three sweet senior girls found themselves in a predicament when their owner passed away. With no family members able to take them in and properly care for them, they found themselves here and have been adjusting remarkably well to shelter life for girls of their ages.

Daffodil is the oldest at about 12yo. She's a sweet, affectionate girl that loves to chirp and chatter at you. No matter what we have done to this girl, she has purred the whole way through. Microchipping her, vaccinating her, clipping her nails, it doesn't matter, she's just happy to get attention. Out of the three of them, she's the most likely to be a lap cat.

Tulip is the shy girl out of the bunch. She's about 10yo. She prefers to observe rather than participate and she tends to keep to herself. She does appreciate affection and attention, but she won't seek it out like Daffodil does. She's just looking for somewhere calm and quiet where she can spend her days lounging in sun spots.

And then there's Primrose.

Primrose is also ten years old and this girl is fat and sassy. Honestly, she's way too relatable. She has the typical calico attitude and always looks cranky no matter what's going on or where she is. She has a severe case of Resting *ahem* Face. Every picture of her is such a mood. Weighing in at about 17lbs, she's going to need to be on a diet in her new home which we're sure totally won't make her even sassier...

All three girls get along with other cats (yes, even Primrose.) All three girls are healthy seniors (aside from Primrose being overweight and all three of them having some moderate dental disease which is to be expected from senior girls.)

They don't need to go together. It would be cool if they did! But we're well aware that it's going to be difficult enough adopting out one senior cat, never mind three.
