Diamond in the Ruff & Feline Friend

Roxy is my name and exercise is my game. I’m a three-year-old female, large in size, gray and white Weimaraner mix. I don’t like to play much but do love to run and go for walks. I’m learning to walk on leash and I still need a little more training. I love people and cats but not too sure about dogs. Plus I’m totally housebroken! I just need a home with a nice fenced yard so I can run and have fun. Come on up and visit me sometime, I’m sure I’ll win your heart.

Here’s a story of some lovely kitties, who need to be re-homed together. Boozer, Tuna and Zoie are twelve year-old Ragdolls. We were informed that they are purebred, however we do not have the papers, but they do look it. All three of these beautiful cats are front declawed as well. They were surrendered to our shelter due to an unexpected death in their family. Boozer and Zoie are brother and sister and Tuna has been with them his whole life. We would love to get them a home all together, as would be in their best interest and well being. They are very shy and a little scared right now due to stress, but some love & attention will help them with that. A quiet home would be the best place for them. Please come meet this beautiful trio today!
