Bernie - Lucky Dog

Bernie – Lucky Dog Animal Rescue
This handsome pup, Bernie, is a 1-2 year old Boxer/Shepherd mix Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.  Bernie is an energetic pup that would love to go running or play a game of fetch with you!  He has a lot of love to give, and after a long day, wants nothing more than to be your best friend and get belly rubs.  To adopt Bernie, please fill out our adoption questionnaire (available here) and send it to Cynthia  If you think he would be a good foster pup, please contact us here.  We have many adoptable animals, so please feel free come check us out at one of our events!

Wavy - Tails High

Wavy – Tails High, Inc.

Wavy is a sweet, young girl from Tails High, Inc.  Wavy loves to follow her people around, curl up at their feet, and be held.  She squeaks excitedly for food and when she sees pups, and will purr endlessly and knead for hours if given a soft blanket.  She’s great with other cats, people of all ages, and probably pups too!  Also, Wavy’s coat lives up to her name – she just had a haircut before her pic!  If you would like to adopt Wavy, please complete our adoption application on our website.  You can also visit us at one of our upcoming events!

Clovis - City Dogs

Clovis – City Dogs Rescue


Clovis is quite the playful 1-2 year-old English/Redtick Coonhound mix from City Dogs Rescue.  This beautiful boy is good with other dogs, does well in a crate (accident free!), and has started to learn his basic commands.  Clovis’s perfect day would be plenty of exercise and play time with his people, other pups, or toys, and giving his people lots of wags.  You can apply to adopt Clovis or any of our available dogs on our adoption page, apply to foster one of our pups here, or meet some of our pups at one of our upcoming events!

More adoptable pets after the jump.
