Featured Pet


Sadie & Maura

I'm Sadie, with the black fur. I am beautiful, friendly, and loving. To top off that list of wonderful qualities I also have a best friend/sister named Maura, and we are looking for a new home together. Our mom, and human best friend, passed away on Christmas morning and our whole world was turned upside down. We are looking for another human to love us like our mom did. We prefer a calm and quiet home together and we both adore people and kids. We haven't lived with those dog creatures before. I'm a little more outgoing and social than my sister, but there always has to be a more go with the flow person in a relationship, and that's Maura. Also, get your cameras out because we're big snugglers. You'll probably want your own Instagram for us. We are litterbox trained and love to use our scratching posts. Now, we both do eat a Hill's prescription diet to keep us on our A game, plus some wet food for flavor (humans say it can cost about $45 every six weeks or so). I used to have some urinary crystals but this diet is game changing and I'm all clear of those. Extra cool? We come with all of our stuff; toys, beds, cat tower, litterbox dishes, we have it all. We just need you to love us. If you want to adopt us just fill out an application!
