Pet of the Week: Peyton

Peyton is not ready for adoption just yet. He needs a loving foster home, as he is going through heartworm treatment. He is about 2.5 years old and is believed to be a type of Shar Pei mix.

His bio: “Hi there! Have you always wanted to foster, but haven’t found the right dog? Well it may just be me! I have Heartworm Disease and need a quiet place to rest while I go through treatment over the next few months. I am looking for a foster that has some time on their hands to give me lots of love and help me stay very calm. I can go on slow, short walks around the block and will need to be on my leash to go out to the bathroom. I shouldn’t be around other animals or kids right now because they will try to get me to play when I need to be constantly resting. If you have a calm, quiet, mellow home for me, please contact the shelter to foster me!”

Pets up for adoption:

Echo: approximately 5 years old, neutered male, domestic shorthair

His bio: “Do you know that awesome feeling of having someone wash and brush your hair? I love that feeling! Well, the brushing anyway; I prefer to do my own baths. If you promise to brush me lots, I promise to give you lots and lots of love. I enjoy getting attention. While you brush me, I’d be happy to talk to you about whatever you’d like. I would also make a great napping partner. I love to curl up in bed and relax. If you’re a Netflix binger, I would be happy to curl up by your side to keep you company. Basically, my dream is to have a friend for life. If that sounds like what you need, come and adopt me today!”


Millie: approximately 5.5 years old, spayed female, domestic shorthair

Her bio: “I’m a very reflective cat that needs a lot of time to think about life and all it has to offer. I prefer a quiet, calm life with no drama. I enjoy having my own space. That doesn’t mean I don’t like affection too. I will always take a pause for a chin scratch or a head pet. In fact, I really enjoy being loved and fawned over from time to time. And I am happy to have chill nights where we read a book or watch TV together. If a mellow cat that just wants to relax and live life is what you need, then adopt me! We can live out our drama free lives together.”
