Fee-Waived Adoptions: Priceless!

We all know that the love of a pet is priceless, so as our gift to you during our birthday celebration, we are featuring six homeless animals whose adoption is literally priceless!  Their adoption fees have been waived, and they’re ready to move to loving, forever homes.


Blue is a blog favorite! We have featured the story of this gorgeous pit bull’s abandonment and injury. Well now Blue is all better, and ready for his forever home. He loves sunbathing and chasing bugs, and he is great with kids and other dogs. In addition to being housebroken, Blue has a small repertoire of tricks under his belt. Will YOU be the happy ending to Blue’s story?


Max is a senior cat who was reluctantly owner-surrendered with another cat when the owner moved and was not allowed pets.  This sociable fellow gets along well with other cats, even the bossy cat he came in with. He specializes in head boinks, and loves to be scratched on the side of his face – he even likes to be picked up, cuddled and loved!  If you’re looking to max out your kitty love, come and visit this lovable fellow.


Sweet tabby Tess wandered onto a kind soul’s property as a stray.  Sadly, the woman’s dogs saw her as a potential snack, so Tess was surrendered to us.   She has had a hard life.  Ear-tipped and spayed as a feral (wild) cat, she has clearly been living outdoors for some time.  Fortunately, her rescuer has sponsored her adoption fee to support her new start in life.  Although a bit skittish, Tess wants to trust humans, and just needs some time and TLC.


Hector the shepherd mix just has that mischievous smile. He is energetic and happy-go-lucky, excited to great each visitor with a bark and some tail-wagging. He is housebroken and gets along very well with other dogs, though it is not recommended that he go to a house with cats. Hector is heartworm positive and is on medication for this condition. You can read more about heartworm here. If you want a cuddle buddy with a playful side, Hector is the dog to complete your pack.


If you’re seeking a truly precious companion, Precious may be your gal.  This beautiful, sleek black kitty loves to be a lap cat, although at night she turns into the perfect sleeping buddy, curling up in her human’s bed.  Poor Precious arrived when her dad became ill and could no longer care for her.  She’s friendly with visitors and kids, and loves a scratching post.  This sweet gal blossomed in a foster home, but is ready to move on to a lap that is hers alone.


And finally, there’s Clooney!  This silver fox is an awesome guy who’s been with us for one of his five years – far too long.  He’s housebroken, and has a face a dog mother can definitely love.  He gets along well with other medium to large dogs, and enjoys play time, but has an unfortunate interest in chasing cats.  Clooney could stand to lose a pound or two, but that doesn’t stop him from thinking he’s a lap dog!  He walks well on a leash, and could join you for some exercise.  He’s ready to walk out of our facility, and into your home.

We’re looking forward to seeing you, and hope you can stop by and visit any Friday, Saturday or Sunday from 2-5. Maybe during our Birthday Open House on Saturday, May 18th? Please share this post, and let’s work together to find these adorable pets a present they’ll cherish for our birthday and many years to come – a home of their own!


  1. What a great promotion to celebrate your birthday! We have our paws crossed that all these sweeties find forever homes real soon. Congratulations on 35 years, and wishes for 35 more and beyond!
