Adopt A Dog: Coachella!

Meet Coachella! She came to us just two weeks ago through our partnership with the Soi Dog Foundation in Thailand.

She was found as a stray after being hit by a car; she had a fractured femur and a dislocated hip. After surgery and physical therapy, she went right back to being the happy girl she is! Coachella has been given a clean bill of health, but it is recommended that she be on lifelong joint support with the addition of possible chiropractic care.

Coachella is currently is being fostered with other dogs and has done great with them. She is approximately 3 years old, up to date on vaccines, house-trained, crate-trained, spayed, and has had recent blood work that was within normal limits. Her adoption fee is $250

She is very outgoing, loving, happy-go-lucky, and very playful. Side note, even though she has probably never seen snow, it has been discovered that she absolutely LOVES the snow.

Adopt A Kitten: Hayes

Meet Hayes!! This sweet boy came into our adoption program about three weeks ago, and he is too cute for words!

His mom showed up at a Good Samaritan’s home and unbeknownst to her, she was pregnant and blessed her with 8 kittens. A local rescue was able to take four of the kittens into foster, and we were more than happy to take the other four into our adoption program.

Hayes is a sweet, rambunctious boy who will make someone very happy. He is 9 weeks old, up to date on vaccines, and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian.

His adoption fee is $125 which include any remaining vaccines he will need as well as his neuter.
