Bull is a sweet 9 month old neutered male. He is up to date on all his vaccines and knows basic commands. He is extremely sweet and loving, and does great with other dogs and children. He loves playing fetch, riding in the car and going on outings. Bull is still working on his leash manners but is eager to please! He would like to be an inside dog with a fenced yard to play in. Unfortunately, the landlord who owns the home that Bull lives in has told his family that they must re-home him. Please call or email to learn more about Bull!

This dark red tiger neutered boy, probably around a year old, belonged to renters next door to my sister where he was an inside/outside cat. Unfortunately, they moved and left him behind. He upsets her cats and two of them are aggressive toward him and have been in scuffles with him. She has had to repair her cat containment fence several times where he has torn it trying to get in/out, coming in to get food. He doesn't understand what has happened. He learned how to use her pet door to get into her house. It is obvious he just wants to be loved and have a secure home. We feel sorry for him but have no way to keep him. The owner of the rental house paid to have him neutered and given a Rabies vaccine (done on 5/10/17). He also tested negative for FeLuk and Heartworm but tested positive for FIV. He is currently in my sister's house since he obviously could not be turned back outside, but she cannot keep him past next week. She has 8 cats, and needs 3 separations among them when not home because of bullying, and she has limited air conditioning in her home and cannot keep the cat in an un-air-conditioned room. Please help us if at all possible.

Hello!

My name is Marshall and I am a handsome male, ten year old orange tabby. I was a rescue from Marshall, NC, hence the name. My parents have had me since I was a kitten, but since adding a baby human to the mix, I’ve had a hard time adjusting. I would love to find a nice, quiet home where I can get lots of love and attention.

I love to nap upstairs and downstairs. Also out in the sunroom or by any big window. Napping is very important to me and I take it seriously. I also love to eat and if I had it my way, would eat all the time. Sometimes my parents joke that my name should be Garfield. I’m up to date on all of my vaccinations and neutered. I would do best in a home with no other pets or small children – these things bring out my grumpy side. But once you get to know me I am the purrfect lap kitty. There’s nothing more I love to do than curl up in your lap and purr the afternoon away.

Overall, I’m in great health and very laid back. If you’re looking for a snuggle buddy for those lazy summer days or cold mountain nights, I’m your kitty.

Tobias is a roughly 6 year old Lab mix. He lived in an outdoor lot for those years and then his owners passed away and we were lucky to acquire him. He started this new journey with heartworms, intestinal worms, and very underweight. Now he is now parasite free and gained enough weight to look like the handsome man he was suppose to be!
Tobias LOVES hikes, swimming, and squeaky toys. **He HATES cats!** He gets along well with other dogs and every size human he meets. Children can hang on him and he does not mind at all. Raw bones and duck feet are his favorite snacks.

If you think Tobias needs to be your new friend, please call the Pet Vet on Patton and ask for Holly

Daliah is a beautiful sweetheart, and the softest animal you will ever pet. She is litter trained and though she could venture throughout the house, she stays in the living room. She loves to binky on her rug in the mornings! Daliah loves attention, but one just has to take it very slow with her (calmly sit near her or pet her for a while before picking her up). She will cuddle for hours at a time and gently nip your clothes when she wants to get down. Though she eats plenty of hay and pellets, she loves all kind of veggies and fruit. She doesn't chew on anything except her apple sticks, though we have put up all cords to be safe.

Daliah needs to go to a home without other pets, as she is a diva and hasn't liked our other pets. She also doesn't have patience for the noise and quick, unpredictable movements of small children.

Bear is a sweet lab mix that is looking for a new home. He is very energetic so he would be best placed with active family. He will be 2 years old on May 9th, 2017. He loves his people and has bit of separation anxiety so he would be best with a person who works from home or someone can afford a play-care for him. He currently goes to petvet on Patton for play-care and for his vet needs. Bear is very loved and is a very happy pup however he does need some basic training. He tries hard not to jump on people but has a difficult time remembering that. He would be best in a home with no children/older children/teenagers. He also would be best with someone who owned a home with a fenced in yard. He is well socialized with other dogs his size and loves people. He does have some leash aggression and food aggression. We are offering a 7 week paid training class for Bear and his new family.
Bear is a good dog but we find ourselves in a tough situation and need to re-home him. My husband has to have a heart pump (LVAD) put into his heart that will have a wire lead extend outside of his body. If the wire is damaged or pulled at all, he can die. Bear is very excitable and active and sometimes jumps and we just can't take the risk that he could unintentionally harm my husband.

We are looking for a good home and good family for a Bear. We are broken-hearted that we have to re-home him but we know he will bring a lot of joy and happiness to the right family. He comes with his crate, tennis balls, toys, 6 months of treats, 6 months of organix dog food, a 7 week paid training class and a month of playcare at PetVet on Patton. He is up to date on his shots and is neutered, of course.

Please have a home with a fenced in yard.
Please have 3 personal character/vet references.
Please only have older children or teenagers in the home.
Please have lots of time for playtime, walks and hikes with Bear.
We would love updates for Bear as the years go by and would love a family who would be open to that!

Thank you,
Jen

Kale is a shepherd mix who weighs approximately 45 pounds. He will be 5 years old this spring. He is energetic and a great outdoor companion for hiking, jogging, etc. When you bring him inside he wants nothing more than to cuddle up with a nice pillow. He cannot be in a home with cats or other small animals, he has a very strong prey drive (he does fine with chickens though). He currently lives in a home with another dog his size, however he is very dominant and can be food aggressive. For this reason we would like him to find a home where he is the only animal. He is tolerant of small children, but much prefers older ones - he loves to run and jump and play ball. He is neutered, up to date on all of his shots and has no medical conditions. He will come with his crate, dog bed, leash and food container.

This wonderful black cat is Spirit. He has a great loving personality, is full of energy, loves to play with other cats and is in good health. He does not like to be picked up, so a home with small children would not work for him. He does love to be scratched! He will talk for his food and enjoys watching the birds outside the window. The only reason I have to find another home for him is that I am downsizing and will not be able to take him with me. I love him dearly and want him to have a home filled with unconditional love. Please call with any questions or to meet this little Gentleman!

Thank you.

Looking to re-home my awesome dog Aiden. He is 1 year old on the 20th this month. Lab mix. He really is a very good dog, I just am not able to give him the time he needs now that my work schedule has increased. He basically ends up staying in his crate most of the day because I'm working. Call me a bad owner...yes I should have done a better job at realizing this before I got him several months ago...but that's beside the point now. He's still a young dog (still has that puppy in him) with a full life ahead of him. Somebody needs to take him who can give him the time to teach him commands and such, and he would absolutely LOVE a yard to run around in. He still likes to not listen when we are outside and not on the leash (I had to chase him down the road about a mile the other night) he's playful...loves the outdoors...but will also lay down and sleep too. He is house trained as he knows to go outside. (He has had an accident when I bring him places new like my parents or friends for a couple days...but that's common in new environments. So expect an accident or two in the first week but other than that he will be fine) I'm also in the process of moving in the next couple of weeks so the dog situation will be a little more difficult than now. I have all his stuff...like his crate and food to go with him....his leash...He's up to date on his shots and all that stuff. He has been taking medicine the past couple of weeks for his worms...but he is getting over that now and feeling much much better. He's about 45lbs. If interested let me know. He would be a GREAT family dog. Great will small kids...and good with other dogs. I marked on here that he lived with other dogs...which he did before I got him but not since then. Although we have visited family with other dogs and such too. Feel free to share this with any people you might feel he would be a good fit for. Thanks everybody.

PLEASE Adopt this amazing cat! I don't want to have to surrender her. Lucy is one of the smartest cats I've owned and therefore has a lot of personality. She even goes on hikes with us! I got her when she was a kitten. She had tons of energy and would bound around the house. As she grew, so did her personality. She did quirky things, like take naps in the bathroom sink and hide when she would hear me coming, only to bound out at me when I entered the room. She used to follow me around the house. She was my little companion. Not your typical lap cat, but that is what I loved about her. You would feel really special when she did decide to cozy up. But you can't pet her for too long, or she may turn and snap. All of these things were fine, until I had kids. At one point, when her claw got stuck in my child's earlobe, we decided she needed to be an outdoor cat. But unfortunately, she wants inside so bad. So she claws at the windows and hurls herself against the doors. We tried letting her in just at night, but my husband didn't want her in the bed with us and so she just continued her shenanigans to try to get in the room with us. The result was she would wake us up and sometimes our kids. Adding on to the sleep deprivation already experienced by having kids, is just unacceptable to us at this point in our lives. Before having kids, it was never a problem. I don't remember being woken up by her and if I was, I was able to go back to sleep. Unlike if she wakes up a 2 year old! Then everyone is up. She really is a great cat and I was extremely fond of her. But now, my kids and my sleep are the most important things and Lucy is, sadly, a bit unloved. I'm really hoping someone can take her and give her a better life. She wants to be indoor/outdoor and is not satisfied with just one or the other. She is a pretty good mouser. We've never had any other pets, so she is territorial and doesn't like other animals. But this is probably something she could get used to. Since she has been committed to the outdoors, we have to keep her food out there and it is attracting other neighborhood animals.
