Laura is a pretty little 3 ½-month-old kitten. She is a tabby calico in color with a very cute face and golden eyes. Laura was a stray kitten and a nice person brought her to the humane society so she could find her forever home. Laura was a little timid and unsure of things at first, which is understandable. But she is doing much better and settling in and relaxing and enjoying attention. If you are looking for a little feline beauty to add to your home, come for a visit with Laura!

Marvin is a darling 4-month-old mixed breed puppy. We have him as a Boxer and Chow mix, but he looks like he could also have some Heeler in his background. Marvin is a handsome brown and white with lots of freckles in his white markings. Marvin is a fun fellow that loves to play and then snuggle during rest time. He should be a smart boy and he’s ready to start his training and make a great companion. Wouldn’t you like to make Marvin a part of your life?
