 Big Orange




Pet's Name:  Big Orange

Age:  About 3 years of age

Breed: DSH

Spayed or Neutered?:  Neutered

Description:I take care of a small group of stray community cats here at our townhouse neighborhood. Big Orange appeared with the group a few months back. When he arrived he already had a tipped ear, so we feel he has been neutered. He's a bit too affectionate to have been a stray his whole life. He will rub on your legs and adores being scratched behind the ears. He has a very large purr and is very vocal. We have a very small home and my husband is allergic to cats, so we are unable to take him in. Big Orange is highly food motivated and gets along with most of the cats that we take care of. He also has no fear of our beagle.  We would love to give him the chance to once again be a pampered pet in a loving home.

Pet's Name: Mugsy

Age: Two years old

Breed: Long-haired Tuxedo

Spayed or Neutered?: Neutered

Description: I feed a small group of strays and Mugsy just showed up one day a few months ago. Mugsy is definitely not a stray or feral cat. He's starved for affection and very loving. He's quite at home walking right into our home. He purrs immediately upon being picked up and it saddens us to see him with the remainder of the group, but we are unable to take him in because of my husband's allergies. We have checked unsuccessfully for an owner nearby but feel fairly sure that he was abandoned when someone moved from our townhouse community.  Mugsy gets along fine with our dog and with the other cats in our small community. He is timid when strangers come over, but warms up very quickly. He weighs about ten pounds and was neutered at FCNMHP and received his shots at the same time. Mugsy would make a purrrrfect companion pet.

Pet's Name: Bruno

Age: 4 years old

Breed: Pitbull Mix

Spayed or Neutered?: Neutered


Description:I am a sweet boy who loves to cuddle up and watch movies, play fetch and run around outside, go swimming in the pool, and ride in cars. I give the best hugs and kisses and have so much love to give. Unfortunately, my momma moved into an apartment and was not able to take me with her, but I understand that she needed to find a safer place for her and her baby to live. So now, I am on vacation at Grandma and Grandpa’s until my momma can find a good home for me that will love me as much as she does. I am neutered (thanks mom!), up to date on my vaccinations, and am microchipped. I was very polite to my mom’s parrot and flying squirrel but I remember we went to my aunt’s house one time and she had a cat that I just wanted to gobble up! So please don’t temp me with those frisky little creatures. Please let my mom know if you would like to adopt me and love me. I promise to love you unconditionally in return.

-2 year old Male
-Mixed breed
-Medium build/est. 40 lbs
-Neutered and Chipped
-Vaccinated and healthy
-Safe around other animals and children
-House trained
-Free to a good home, along with supplies! 

I'm looking for some new roommates to live with since my buddy is moving
somewhere and I can't go with him. Total Bummer! I'm hoping this will turn out to be awesome thing - like maybe my new place could have a big yard with some fun, high energy people who love to play catch. It would be amazing if they also like to cuddle as much as I do! Maybe they could teach me some new tricks too! I know how to sit, lay down, fetch, and drop it and I would love to learn some of those fancy ones I’ve seen at the dog park! I've been using a doggie door to go out lately (very convenient!) but I can hold it when I need to. I've heard some other guys can’t do that or they make problems like chewing things up or being mean. I want you to know I'm definitely not like that—I'm just a big lover! As long as we can hang out all the time and play, I’m a happy camper ! You can call my buddy on his phone if you think we would be a good fit. Unfortunately I don't have one of my paws are too big to press those little numbers on the screen!

Pet's Name: Sheba


Age: 6 yrs.


Breed: Husky Mix


Spayed or Neutered?: Spayed and Micro Chipped



Description: This is the sweetest animal you will ever have the pleasure of meeting, as well as the quietest. I love her dearly and the only reason I am finding her a new home is due to the fact that I have a 6 month old who is taking all of my time and I no longer have enough left for her the way that she deserves. She is a rescue that has been through a major traumatic abuse for years and that is why she requires extra loving. I have only heard her bark 3 times in the 3 years that I have known her. She has already come out of her shell so much since my meeting her. Almost a complete 180 degrees. She loves to run and play outside with other big dogs, and is a huge fan of the dog park. She is loyal, loving, and sincere. Also up-to-date on all vaccinations, and heartworm free. Please help me find her the best home!!!

Pet's Name: Tiny

Age: 2.5 years

Breed: domestic shorthair tabby

Spayed or Neutered? Spayed

Description: I found Tiny outside of my apartment complex when she was just 5 weeks old. She is a loving, sweet cat who loves to lay in your lap and be pet. She got a human baby sister 10 weeks ago and, unfortunately, is not a fan of the new situation. We hate for her to leave our family, but with the new baby, Tiny needs a new home and owners that can give her the attention she once had. She is litter-box trained, loves to look out the window, and will have a conversation if you talk to her. She is a dainty little cat, weighing just 6 pounds, with beautiful green eyes. She loves just being a lap cat. She usually sleeps in her bed at night (like a dog). She has never been around other cats or dogs. She is declawed in front and an indoor-only cat.

Pet's Name: Rocky
Age: Less than a year
Breed: Pit bull
Description: Friendly, full of energy, very loving and good with other dogs
Spayed or Neutered?: Neutered 

About a month ago I found a male Pit, who I've since named Rocky, on the side of the road. He is very sweet and loving, but full of energy as he is not quite a year old yet from what the vet could tell. I would love to keep him, but I'm a single guy in the military and finding him temporary housing while I'm away is hard and unfair to him. I had him neutered within the first week of finding him. Hoping to find a great family that will get a great dog.

Pet's Name: Sadie
Age: 1 year, 3 months
Breed: Domestic shorthair

Spayed or Neutered?: Spayed

Sadie is EXTREMELY cuddly, especially at night. Although she is generally friendly, we feel that she would do much better as the only cat in the household. Sadie does not get along with out other cat but is otherwise a very playful, peaceful creature. Sadie will generally let you know when she is not in the mood to be held or touched by giving a light nibble or swipe of her paw but will more often than not try to get close to you.

Pet's Name: Sheba
Age: 8 years
Breed: Bulldog mix 

Sheba is an 8-year old sweetheart that has had a tough life and wants to have a family of her own. Sheba has not known the love of a family because she has lived outside most of her life. Sadly, her prior owner brought her to St. Francis Animal Hospital and wanted to euthanize her because he didn’t want her any more. Because Sheba is a happy, healthy dog, St. Francis Animal Hospital could not euthanize Sheba. Sheba deserves a second chance at a loving home; can you give her a second chance?

Sheba is a bulldog mix that is very friendly and great with all people she has met, walks very well on the leash, is crate-trained and house-trained. Sheba is well mannered, wants to please the people in her life and especially wants to be a part of a family.

Sheba has been evaluated by a trainer and she did well on the behavior evaluation. Sheba is very trainable, she is very attentive to her handler and would make a good addition to a family. On a scale of 1-10, Sheba’s reactivity to other dogs was rated at 6, so it is recommended that Sheba go to a home with no other dogs or cats. The trainer is willing to offer an hour training session to anyone who adopts Sheba.

Sheba is about 50 pounds, spayed and up-to-date on vaccines. Sheba is heartworm positive and her exercise will have to be restricted while she is being treated for the heartworms.

Pet's Name: Gracie (grey), Mikey (grey siamese), Hank (dark/black siamese), TL (black)
Age: 1 year
Breed: DSH
Description: We found these kittens on May of last year while house sitting. There are 4 total, 2 boys and 2 girls. Mikey, is the boldest of the four, he has venuted into the kitchen/living room with our two dogs, and has even been seen eating their food, and drinking their water. He will rub against them and has started to get over his fear of the dogs. Hank, will join with Mikey, up until he comes into contact with the dogs, and will move to get out of the way. TL has a story for her name, while we were thinking about what to do with the kittens when we found them thinking there was only 3 originally, she decided to hide out in the engine bay of my car (acura TL)..she rode with me about 2 miles until I heard the meowing and pulled over to stop and she bolted out, we found her eventually hiding in some bushes - but my car is black she is black, the name seemed fitting. Gracie is the most shy of the group, but she opens up when the dogs are not around, or if you catch her upstairs alone. They are all affectionate and crave to be handled and scratched. They are up to date on shots, and have all been spayed and neutered by our vet. They are indoor cats, still having both front and rear claws. We did not expect to have them this long, but, with that said, with the already mentioned two dogs and two young children, we are finding a hard time to keep up. They have great personalities and gentle disposition, so much so that they can handle being carried and picked up by a 2 year old. Willing to release the cats individually, in pairs, or even as the whole litter group, they really need more attention than we can give.

Pet's Name: Ashes
Age: 9 months
Breed: Pharoah Hound Mix (?)

Hello! My name is Ashes. I'm a nine month old puppy, who my mommy believes to be a Pharaoh Hound (I don't know what that is, but I look just like the pictures on google!. I love cuddles, kisses, and running around outside. I love hunting the little lizards and playing chase with my friend Luna! I sleep in my crate at night, or when mommy isn't home. I never have accidents in the house. I have LOTS of energy, and I destroy toys and pillows (and shoes!) when I'm not occupied. I would love to go to a home with another dog, and someone who is home a lot & has a lot of time to spend with me. I get lonely and scared when mommy isn't around. Sadly, my mommy & daddy have to move soon to go to school far away, and they don't want to leave me locked up in my box all day because I'd be sad. Please send my mommy and email if you think we could be good friends!

My mommy will send my box, harness, leash with me, and asks for a $50 fee to cover my checkup at the vet!
