Got a sweet tooth? This is Cookie! He’s 7 years old, very sweet, cute and loves to be pet. Once you gain his trust, he’ll be a friend for life ❤️ https://bit.ly/pet-adoption-application-mcac

Today is “National show and tell day at work.”
I’m going to show you Cookie, and tell you all about him.
He’s a loner, but doesn’t have to be. He came to us from a home with several dogs and cats, but seems to enjoy his own company to anyone else’s. He is great at giving you his “resting cat face.” He loves to be pet, held and snuggled…this comes with a little time and trust. He’s obviously adorable. He’s 7 years old, and just over 10 lbs.

Mayflower, now Lydia was adopted in June. She loves learning new things! Loves jumping over or on things and is very fast…she may start agility!🖤

Introducing BUGGY! He came to us as a stray, in bad shape. After a comfort groom (which his hair came off like a shell) he was much happier! He loves to snuggle, be carried, and get butt scratches! He is thought to be 6 years old, and has cataracts (he does have some vision!). He potties outside! This guy deserves all the love in the world. Can you give it to him?

This is Holly. She's 45 lbs of PUPPY! She came to us as a stray. She is a lot of fun, and has tons of energy. Holly is a sweet girl, that would benefit from training. Complete this application!

Cars are designed to keep people, not our pets, safe. Their safety is our responsibility.
In a 35 mph crash an unrestrained 60 lb dog becomes a 2,700 lb projectile, creating enough force to kill both the dog and the driver. Be proactive and keep your pet safe with a carrier or a harness. It's like having a fire extinguisher in the kitchen... you hope you never need it, but if you do you'll be thankful you have one.

Aside from injury, it's important to secure your pet for other reasons like escaping vehicles after a minor accident, near miss or even just opening your car door. Dogs are quick and can end up in traffic, lost or worse. Seat belt tethers in conjunction with a harness or secured crate will increase the likelihood of your family making it safely to their destination.

What a way to end the year! This bonded pair (Creature and Mr. Whiskers) left today to go to their new home! Thank you for adopting X2!!❤️❤️

Tesla. She’s a 2 year old, 40 lb shepherd mix. She is very smart, knows a lot of commands, and does well with people. Tesla was in a home for a few days where she found to be potty trained. However, she needs to be an only pet. She did not like sharing toys, and was overly interested in the cat in the home.
If you’re interested please complete the application below!

This is Trunks. She is about 6 years old and 13 lbs. She is quite shy, but loves to be snuggled, pet, and brushed. We think she’d be best as an only cat. Please complete the application if you’re interested!

Baco! He’s a 2 year old, 47 lb bull terrier. He can be choosy as to who his canine friends are, and would be best in a home without cats or dogs. He is fun loving and full of energy! We are looking for someone who has experience with the breed.

*most of these animals were stray until they came to us. (We don’t know if these cats are good with dogs etc.) A slow introduction is always the best choice! We will answer any questions we can!

This information is SO important!!

All adopted pets go through an adjustment period after they come home from the shelter. The 3/3/3 rule is a great guideline to follow when setting expectations as your pet settles into their new life with you! Remember to be patient and understanding during this transition period. 💚 💙
