Be kind to Benito
Benito is a small adult male chihuahua who will be available for adoption as soon as he is neutered next week.

Cheer Cher
Cher is a adult female American shorthair who was left abandoned in an apartment when her one-time owners moved out in the middle of the night taking everything but her, and another cat, Sonny. They were left behind for two days with no food, water or heat before the landlord had the pound take them.

Dapper Clooney
Clooney is an exceptionally friendly male American shorthair. He was trapped as a stray and when the owner showed up to identify him, decided not to take him home after all. He’d developed an upper respiratory while living outside and his family wasn’t interested in a vet visit. Clooney is now recovering and will be ready for his new home by next week.
