Not much is said about this girl, but according to her photos, she seems like a generally happy girl who loves to give her share of kisses. Lexi has successfully lived with other dogs in the past, so if you have a pupper friend for her, bring them in for a meet and greet. Think about adopting her, here!

She has caramel eyes – how gorgeous are they? She is bonded with Gearhead, another kitten living in her foster home, so they need to be adopted together. Carrot is a very high-energy cat who can play for hours on end with her humans and is currently learning not to be a nibbler. Gearhead will help teach her how to be on her best kitty behavior, plus she has someone to play with all day long. Bring them home, here!

Make sure you set aside some time to give her plenty of belly rubs and to take her out in the backyard to play. Pepper is a fun-loving dog who prefers to be around humans as much as she can and also wouldn't mind having a dog brother or sister. She just wants a family to show her some love and affection. Meet her here!

Shadow, 9

Shadow will need to go to a home with his sister, Baby, as they are a bonded pair! Shadow is a chill guy who loves to lounge around and provide attention when he feels necessary. He would prefer a quiet home with other low-energy animals and older children because the excitement from the younger ones can be too much. If you're prepared to take two cats home, check Shadow out, here!

August isn't thriving in the kennel, and because of it, she's a bit of a wallflower. She will need an owner that can break her out of her shell and show her love and affection! August is a gentle love bug who would fit perfectly in almost any home! Please take her home, here!

Jackson, 14

During her time at the shelter, she has proven to be pretty nervous. Cashmere gets along with other dogs just fine and is slowly making new friends with the staff but would prefer to go to a cat-free home. She loves to go on daily walks so an active owner would be best for her. Come visit her, here!

Joshua, 1

So, let's get this straight, he's cute and his name is Joshua – how has be not been adopted yet? His housemate, Bella, is looking for a home as well and if they can be adopted together, that would be purrfect! His favorite activity is to lie in bed and people-watch. Sounds like a pretty chill guy! Consider him, here!
