Oliver Would Make an Adorable Addition to Your Family
Meet Oliver! This adorable goofball loves to play-be it toys, balls, sticks, you name it-he's down for it all! Oliver is also super smart and would love a home where he can stay active, both physically and mentally. We think he'd do best in a home with older children or adults that can help him learn how to be the best boy he can be! Oliver is a loving and loyal pup who hopes you'll take a chance on him and give him the forever home he's been so patiently waiting for!

Bubbles’ Happy Tail
It's always exciting when any of our pets find their loving furever family, but it was especially exciting when our hospice pup BUBBLES went home this past week!!
We're not sure how long Bubbles has left, but it's clear that her new family is completely obsessed with her, and will make every day she has left a joy. Her mom says, "Bubbles is freaking wonderful! We went on a short walk and explored the backyard/pond, and now she's snoozing on the couch. She was such a good girl at her chemo appointment--she's gonna break our hearts and be 10000% worth it. Thank you so much for letting us adopt her!"
Her new adoptive mom, Rachel, heard about Bubbles on our 100.5 The River Wet Nose Wednesday feature and wanted to make sure Bubbles had a home where she can do zoomies and get all of the love and attention she deserves! How sweet and loving is that! Thanks Rachel.
