Dog of the Week - Aruba

Aruba 9

Don’t be fooled by his adorable appearance– Aruba is a spunky, energetic dog who excels in obedience training and athletics. Aruba would love to find adopters who love training and playtime as much as he does!

Cat of the Week - Eloy


He may be 6 years old but Eloy still has lots of youthful energy! He would be an ideal addition to an adults only home without other pets and is sure to be a loving companion to his future family. Why not stop by and meet this adorable ball of fluff today?
