Pixie was born in approx. 2011 and is a female terrier mix. Pixie is very sweet and loving but is also a little shy. She is a very much an easy keeper. She loves people and attention and would make a great addition to a loving home! She arrived at the shelter with her sister, Trixie, who is also available for adoption, as an owner surrender with severe mange. The mange was so bad that she had lost all of her fur. Her fur is still growing back but the mange is gone and she is ready to find her forever home.

Save a Life, Be a Foster

Bolt was born approx March 2014. He was rescued from a shelter as a stray and clearly had a poor prior life. He was afraid of men and women but now loves attention.  He has had obedience training, is very affectionate, loves to snuggle on your lap, and sleep under the covers. He loves car rides and  going on walks and heals nicely. He is playful and gets along with dogs. He is still somewhat timid so no young kids, but when loved, he will be a lifelong companion.

If you would like to foster Bolt, please email us at
