Cleo Needs Your Help!

Meet Cleo. This beautiful girl needs your help. Cleo was surrendered to LHS after years of being used as a breeder dog. She was crated often and never really treated as a pet or part of the family. She developed an injury to her knee because of this confinement. She has a luxating patella, which means her kneecap doesn’t stay in the proper place. She will need surgery to remain pain free and be able to run & play, like any dog should. Despite all of this Cleo has remained one of the sweetest, most loving dogs. Having this surgery will be the first step at a brand new life for this sweetheart. If you would like to donate towards her surgery, follow the Paypal link below. Please put “Cleo” in the message. We thank you so much!

Lonely Hearts Club for Cats

Wonder what the “Lonely Hearts Club for Cats” is all about?

halfheartpictures2  We have had some orphans here for a very long time from 1-3 years patiently waiting for their new home.  Why are they not given a second glance?  Most of them are shy and need to come out of their shell.  They are not your typical lap cat.  But with an experienced cat person, willing to give the love, time, and patience these cats need and crave, they can turn out to be the most loving cats when given a chance.   Is that person you?  Can you open up your heart to one of our cats in the Lonely Hearts Club?  Please look at the pictures of these cats – their longing eyes for someone to help them show their wonderful personalities!  We have some that have become friends so adopting both of them together will help each one feel more secure in a new environment.  The adoption fee for any of these cats is $30.00. Take a look at Leah, Gucci, Tarzania, Stormy and Maya (who are friends), and Dante and Tiger (who are friends). 







Our next adoption days are:
October 8th – Going Pink for Dog Cancer Awareness Day
October 15th – Going Pink for Dog Cancer Awareness Day
October 29th – There will be a Halloween Party!
  The hours are from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the
