Hi I am Petey and I am an American bulldog. I came into the rescue at a few months old and needed emergency surgery. My new foster mom picked me up from the vet and took me home where I had lots of fur friends to hang out with while I healed. At 4 months old I was adopted to a nice family, at this time we learned I can't hear. I have some nervousness with my condition. My new family struggled with my fears so they brought me back to my foster mom. My foster mom has worked with me since then but she understands that I just don't want to be the dog greeting people at the door and that's ok. I am still nervous when I meet someone new but once I relax I am good. I like to meet new dogs ( going to Petco is my favorite) but it's best that I am an only dog in the home and also best that there are no kids under 8. I need to have a privacy fenced yard, just so I have my own safe environment. My mom likes to hug and kiss on me and boy do I like that. I love to go for walks and learn new ticks. I would love a furever home soon, that will understand my special needs. Give me a chance you won't be disappointed! My approximate birth date is 2/1/2015.

The adoption fee is $150.

Meet sweetheart Daisy! She is very outgoing, friendly and loves to have your attention! This pretty girl has already had a litter of kittens and fulfilled her "momma" duties and is ready for a great home. Daisy is very sleek and slender and is listed as "special needs" because she did test positive for FIV. Please do not let that hinder your ability to love her and own her as a pet! FIV+ cats are no different from other kitties except for their immunodeficiency. Often they show no signs at all. Daisy is thriving in foster care and is happy, loving and very sweet. She would make a wonderful companion! Please consider giving her a forever home.

Hi, my name is Crookshanks! I'm lucky enough right now to be in a foster home but I would really love a home to call my own. I really like other cats and I'm even around a couple of bunnies that I like too. I'm not quite sure if I like dogs yet as I have never been around them much. If someone wants a new member of the family for love and companionship then that's me! I'm kind of a bigger fella but that just means there is more of me to love! I like being petted but I'm not a big fan of being picked up or held. I prefer to be near you rather than in your lap. My foster mom says that I'm a special kitty because I tested positive for a virus called FIV. I don't feel any different and I would love to be treated as any other cat. I need a good nutritional diet and will have to take supplements for my immune system, otherwise I'm just a regular guy. I do know I can be with other cats, too. In fact, my foster siblings right now are a mixture of FIV+ and Non-FIV cats and we get along great. My foster mom is attaching along a new flyer about the virus so everyone can learn about it! Won't you come meet me and fall in love?
