Pets of the week



Chile is a handsome 25 year old red and green Macaw with an extensive vocabulary. While he isn’t that fond of children he does get along well with most men, women and dogs. Red and green Macaws are the second largest Parrots and Chile defiantly embodies that trait. This huge bird has the attitude of a 4 year old child. While he loves to learn new words and games he also enjoys investigating new things in his environment. Chile will need a family that is willing to spend lots of time with him and childproof their home against this highly intelligent and curious mind.



Oso is a wonderful 9 year old cat with long fluffy black hair that will need regular brushing and care. He can be a little shy at first but he’s incredibly sweet once he gets to know you. Oso would love to spend the day curled up in your lap. This soft boy gets along well with cats and children and is looking for a family to love him.


Captain Hook

Captain Hook is a 3 ½ year old black and while male cat with an outgoing personality. This enchanting boy will capture your heart with his playful antics. Captain Hook doesn’t mind being held and does well with children of all ages. While he doesn’t like dogs, this little cutie will make a fine addition to any home.



Taz is a lovely adult boarder collie mix with a spectacular personality. This girl loves everyone and everything! She greets you with a fabulously wagging body and a big grin on her face. Give her a ball and she’ll fetch for you until she drops. She loves exercise of any kind and would love to be your walking, hiking or jogging companion. She came to us quiet over weight but has been steadily working it off. She’ll need a family who’ll keep working on her diet and exercise and will give her the love and attention she desires.
