Adopt this dog Jericho.


Hello, my name is Jericho. I am a really cute and scruffy terrier mix. I may have some Schnauzer, Poodle, and Llasa. That is just my guess, though.

I am about 2 years old, very happy and full of energy, yet also full of love and barrel of laughs. I only weigh about 25 pounds and would love to have a home with someone who needs a companion because I am sure that you will have a smile on your face all of the time.

Please come to the shelter and visit with me, I won't let you down if you promise to love me and take good care of me the rest of my life.

Wags and wiggles,

Adopt this cat Ginger.

Hello, my name is Ginger. I am a very pretty 3 year old girl. I am white with several pretty colorful spots strategically placed on my body and face. I have piercing blue eyes that can look directly into your eyes and make you melt, give in and feel compelled to gather me into your arms and tell me you love me.

I look forward to our meeting.

Purrs and meows,

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 at here 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!
