Polo 1 year. Hi! I’m Polo! I have been told I am a very handsome guy! I am shy and unsure when meeting new people and in new situations because I am a cruelty survivor.

I really want a family I can trust and love!

At just 4-years old, he’s excited about all the new adventures he’ll make with his new family. He loves people and rolls over automatically for non-stop belly rubs. He would be great with a family that is active or just wants to sit on the patio and enjoy the summer days. He’s learning how to walk on the leash and will do best with a family with older kids.

Hi, I’m Tigre and I’m 2 years old. Let’s make a pact. If you promise to give me hugs, I’ll give you unlimited kisses & will make you my forever love. Also, did you check out my picture and see how handsome I SIT? I consider myself pretty smart so if you spend some time training me I’ll be able to learn other fancy tricks as well. Did I say I LOVE treats?
Georgie is 3 years old. His Heartworm Treatment is partially sponsored! Georgie spent some time at PetSuites in their training program! Here is what his friends at PetSuites have to say about Georgie: “Georgie is an entertaining goofy guy. He appreciates everybody he meets, and oftentimes he prefers love over treats. He is a huge people pleaser! We believe he would fit best in an active home with no small children. When meeting other dogs Georgie is respectful but cautious, with the right dog he might gain enough confidence to be playful. He is always grateful for any new toys he receives, when left alone he is very good at entertaining himself with the toys he cherishes so much. He is potty trained. He also loves a nice game of fetch. He would absolutely adore any human he would be able to call his own.”

Momo 2 years. I am the sweetest boy on the block. My little chirps and head nudges are my way of saying “I LOVE YOU SO MUCH WOW!” I’d be happy sitting in your lap all day, just don’t stop petting me!
Mango 4 years. I’m an easy-going, care-free, treat-loving, sweet boy! I am so chill, you might not even notice I’m laying right beside you until you hear my little purrs! I’d love a home I could call my own, and kick back & relax in!
