Lydia is a 5 year old Beagle mix that weighs about 30 pounds. This little peanut is shy when first meeting some new people but with some time and patience she starts to warm up and enjoys getting pets.

All her kittens have found awesome homes and now its Rochelle's turn! She is a very easy going girl who gets along well with everyone she meets!

Ginger is a laid back and friendly girl looking for the "purr-fect" home! Ginger arrived at the shelter with an injury to one of her back legs and after lots of medical treatment and surgery, her leg is finally all healed and she is ready to begin the next chapter of her life. Ginger enjoys pets of all kinds and enjoys being brushed and groomed. Ginger seems to have potential with the right cat and dog. She is a friendly and laid back girl who prefers lounging on a cozy bed or comfy lap. If you're interested in getting to know Ginger better, please stop by our shelter and ask to meet her today!

Meet Cupcake, Sprinkles & Jacob

cupcake sprinkles1   cat jacob

In December 2013, our Humane Offices brought in 33 cats and 5 dogs from a neglect case. All the animals from the home have found loving homes except for two special and loving dogs, Cupcake and Sprinkles! This dynamic duo has been waiting patiently for their turn to find a wonderful home and we hope that their time is near. Cupcake and Sprinkles are a very bonded Sharpei mix pair and they must be adopted out together. They love each other very much. This is evident when you see them playing and chasing each other and sleeping and cleaning one another. With this rock star pair you get the best of everything with unique but similar personalities. Cupcake a 4-5 year old neutered male weighs about 40 pounds (he is the one on the right). He is the playful self-entertainer of the two. Cupcake will be the first to greet you and then will be ready to throw his toys around the room while checking in every couple minutes for pets. Sprinkles is a 6-7 year old spayed female and weighs about 30 pounds. She is the wallflower of the two and is shy when first meeting new people but once she warms up she will stick close by your side for as many pets and TLC as you are willing to spare. Coming from a home with over 30 cats they both seem to get along well with kitties and both show potential with other dogs. If you think Cupcake and Sprinkles would make your life sweeter, they are waiting to meet you at the PHSGA!

Meet Jacob! He is around 4 years old and is a very laid back and easy going guy! Jacob loves to lay in a comfy lap and be pet. He seems to get along well with other cats and has potential with dogs. Jacob is ready and waiting to find a home to call his own! If you're looking for a social cat who should make an easy transition into a forever home, then Jacob is the cat for you!
