Adopt this dog, Teddy.

Hi there, my name is Teddy. I am a very nice, 2 year old, handsome fellow with striking dark, red, medium length fur. I am a Chow Chow mixed breed. One of my eyes is partly blue, which I think sort of gives me some special character. Honestly, I am special! i am very sweet, fun loving, and i look really cute when I wag my little, stubby tail. I think you should come to the shelter and adopt me. We really could have fun going on walks, enjoying nature, playing tag, and just about anything to make you smile.

Hope to see you soon!

Teddy, the cuddly bear

Hi there, my name is Steve. I am a nice, big, huggable, gray tabby boy. I am about 2 years old and can't wait to have someone to love me.

I am a really friendly fellow who is full of purrs and lots of fun ideas to keep you happy and entertained. So, what do you say? Come on over to the shelter and gather me up in your arms, and let's begin having the time of our lives.

Purrs, rubs, and meows,

Adopt this cat, Patti.


Hello, my name is Patti. I am a very pretty, gray tabby girl, with a nice, cute, soft, fluffy body. I am very friendly and my fur is very pettable; it is very soft and my tabby markings are more than tabby, they are more like rabbit fur. I can't wait to get a nice, fun home with someone who will get as much joy from me as I will get from them.

Did you know?

Did you know each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the U.S. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all of these animals. Please Spay and Neuter your pets, and help save lives and end needless suffering of these pets. We offer low-cost options for altering your pets.


We have cats and kittens for adoption at the Arnold PetSmart. These cats are housed there so that they can get more visibility in the community and have better chances at finding their forever homes!

Our dogs travel every Saturday to area PetSmarts and Petcos with our mobile adoptions.

This helps get these pups more visibility in the community, and gives them more of a chance at finding their forever homes. Please check our calendar for locations!
