Aster
Age: 3 Months Old / Breed: Domestic Short Hair / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Kittens are very social by nature, so if there is no other cat in the home, our kittens (under one year of age) are adopted in pairs.
The Flower Power Litter is composed of 3 pound 3 month old Domestic Short Hair adorable kittens Yarrow (male), Peony (female), Zinnia (female) and Aster (female). These amazing kittens have so much personality wrapped up in their tiny little bodies. They purr when they are held and will lay in their foster mom's lap. They chase one another around and tease the puppies they are fostered with. They all come out to greet their foster mom, especially when it is meal time. 
Aster has an adorable little face that will let you know how she is feeling. She doesn't mind being held, but would prefer to be petted while her feet are on the ground. She loves to race around with her siblings. The adoption fee for one kitten is $75 and the adoption fee for two kittens is $110.”

Bonnie
Age: 2 Months Old / Breed: Irish Wolfhound Mix / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Bonnie and Clyde will rob your hearts just like their namesakes robbed banks! We are 2 months old, about 18lbs, Irish Wolfhound/Mastiff/German Shepherd mixes! Based on our breed and current size, we are likely going to grow to be pretty large. We currently spend our days cuddling, napping, and playing tug-of-war. Potty and crate training is coming easily to us, but we are still learning. We love to follow around our foster brother (85 pounds) and learn from him. We are extremely curious about everything, ready to explore our world with our forever families! 
Bonnie is the first one to try something new and sniff around. Clyde on the other hand wants to observe everything first. But once it is nap time, both are right there wanting a lap to lay on! Bonnie's adoption fee is $400.”

Herbert
Age: 1 Years Old / Breed: Terrier Mix / Sex: Male / Rescue: SAAP
”Herbert is a sweet young fella who is just learning to dog. His background was a home with too many dogs and has so far lacked the individual attention to learn commands and potty outside. He's working on it with big strides. His crate helps him know when to hold it. He's a bit nervous about being approached too quickly until he warms up to new people and backs up or lies down on the ground. We're working on realizing getting head pets are good. Now that he trusts me he naps on my lap and wags his tail at me. He would be best in a home without younger kids with his fear of sudden human movements. Since he is not yet leash trained he needs a physical fence.
Oh and he is ridiculously handsome.”

Firefly
Age: 10 Years Old / Breed: Terrier Mix / Sex: Female / Rescue: SAAP
”Firefly is an 8 pound, scruffy, feisty, funny, smart girl. She has limited vision but she sees well enough to get around and can even climb on the patio table and get a treat out of the bag. She loves other dogs and tries to get them to play. Sometimes she loves them so much she tries to hump them so she'll need tolerant dog siblings. She is not house trained but she does great with a schedule and treats. Firefly has chronic dry eyes so she will need 3 kinds of eye medicines daily long term. She doesn't mind the drops and sit still for them. She is a bossy little girl sometimes and she likes to use her bark to remind the world that she's happy and wants to play. Firefly has been a mama to many litters and now she's looking for a home where she can just be a cherished family member. She would do best in a calm house without children and a fenced yard or an adopter that will use puppy pads.”

Duke
Age: 4 Months Old / Breed: Black and Tan Coonhound  / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Jack and Duke are two adorable, curious Black and Tan Coonhound puppies. They are 4 months old, weighing around 27 lbs each. Jack is more shy and timid, while Duke is more outgoing. True to the Coonhound breed, they love to sniff around the house. Both are working on basic command like, sit, come and off/no. Both are almost crate trained and potty trained but will need additional work in their forever homes. They are very social and loveable (lots of kisses). These boys love playing with rope toys and plush squeaky toys. They are fostered with two other dogs. Duke's adoption fee is $400.”

Frozone
Age: 1 Year Old / Breed: Husky-Dalmatian Mix / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Where is his super suit?! Frozone is 1 year old Husky mix! He's a petite boy at 45 pounds. Frozone is a super active boy who would love a family that is on the go. He'd be a great running or hiking buddy, as he's always ready for adventure. He loves to run and play with other dogs, but is a little too playful for kitty siblings. He's never met any children while in foster care but Frozone would do best with older kids due to his tendency to jump up when excited. He thrives off of physical exercise and is working hard on his leash manners, but will need continued work! He can't wait for his forever family to teach him new things! He would love a fenced in yard to burn off some of his energy and is respectful of a fence. He is working hard on both his crate and potty training. If you want to make this goofy boy a part of your family, apply online today!
My adoption fee is $250”
