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
