Pet of the Week: Creed (52456815)

Meet Creed! A 6-year-old with a heart as big as his smile. He’s more than just a handsome face; Creed is potty trained, walks well on a leash, and is a pro at tricks like sit and shake. When out with staff or volunteers, Creed likes to partake in a run in the yard or a game of fetch. This sweet boy also has good interactions with other dogs at the shelter. If you’re ready to bring joy, loyalty, and a tail-wagging bundle of love to your life, Creed is eagerly waiting for you!  

Pet of the Week: Caprese (52541579)  

Are you looking for a pup who gets along well with other dogs, cats, and kids? Let us introduce the 2-year-old wonder pup, Caprese! This sweet girl spent some time in a foster home and has stellar notes that reflect what a good pup she is! Her foster home reports that Caprese is housetrained, walks well on a leash, knows sit and shake, and lives harmoniously with the resident cat. If you’ve got sausage treats and a comfy place for napping, Caprese would fit easily into your home!
