Carter is a spunky pup with a friendly, adventurous spirit. He’s just 11 months old and is happy to play with each and every person he meets. He loves to romp through the yard in search of hidden tennis balls and stashes of toys, but is polite enough not to dig holes to find buried treasure. With a dark brindle coat that is easy to keep clean, he plays well with other dogs, but isn’t a fan of cats, so he needs a home without any felines. He is an active dog with drive that would be great for jogging, hiking, or epic games of fetch in the back yard. All set to head out to discover new territory, all he needs is a home base and a few trusty companions who are ready for a life changing adventure.

Quiet as a mouse, one-year-old Cranberry is filled to the brim with more love than she could ever expend, so she’s looking for a family to lavish her attention on. She dotes on other pets and would adore a home with other animals to cuddle with. She is a picture perfect example of a well-mannered house cat; her litter box stays tidy and she loves to make tiny nests out of her blankets. Solid black with a tiny white star on her chest, she is beautiful inside and out. Her ideal home is anywhere you are because she knows the true value of a warm, loving family. Make Cranberry a part of your lives today and add all the love and happiness you could ever hope for, to your home.
