Featured Adoptables

This happy face belongs to 8-year-old Moose. Moose came to us in late June because his owners could no longer take care of him. He was a little shy with us at first but as you can see he has become much more relaxed. This laid back, affectionate dog deserves to find that special someone who will make him feel safe and loved. Are you his special someone? Stop in an pay him a visit. 


Meet Diesel! This adorable young man is full of spunk and energy. His favorite things are his play sessions, lots of cuddling and long walks. Diesel was brought to us because he did not get along with the other animals in his home. Needless to say he would prefer to be in a home without other dogs. And because he has so much energy and is very strong, he would do best around children over the age of 10. Diesel is housebroken, but not crate trained and could use a little work on his manners. So if you think you can give Diesel the time and care he needs and provide him with a fenced in backyard for lots of exercise, stop in and see him! 

This silly girl is Ruby. This rambunctious 2-year-old has plenty of energy to keep both you and herself entertained for hours. She is also very affectionate and absolutely loves the attention. Ruby was brought us because her owner's health made giving her the attention she needs very hard. She is now looking for a new furever home where she will once again be a part of a special family (with children over the age of 5). Ruby has a waiver for a dental examination. Stop in and see her for yourself!

This sweet, little man is 2-year-old Opie. He was surrendered to LHS because his owner could no longer care for him. He is a little shy at first but coming into a new and strange world can take a little getting used to. A few ear scratches and a little loving is all he needs to relax. This special kitty is also FIV positive and would need to be the only cat (or with other FIV positive cats) in his new furever home. So if you are looking to add a very sweet, very calm kitty to your life (and lap), just ask for Opie!

Didn't quite see what you were looking for? There are plenty more where they came from! Click here to view more of our adoptable dogs, cats & small animals.

Featured Adoptables

Say hello to Cookie! This adorable male Guinea Pig is a little shy, but once held, he relaxes and wants nothing more than to enjoy your company. Cookie was brought to us because his previous owner could no longer care for him. He is now looking to find a furever home where he will get all the attention he deserves. So if you are looking to add a sweet, little piggie to your life, just ask for Cookie! 

Meet Garfinkle! This friendly and affectionate 2-year-old was brought to us because his owner's health made caring for him very hard. This sweet boy can be independent but also very playful and he just loves his toys! He also loves being groomed. Garfinkle is looking for a new home where he can enjoy all his favorite things. Can you give him the perfect forever home?

This handsome man is 2-year-old Jack. Jack is very affectionate, loves to explore and is always up for a good conversation, making this talkative cat great company no matter what you are doing. Jack was surrendered to LHS because of his owner's declining health. This well-rounded, friendly cat would make the perfect pet for anyone willing to open their heart and home. Stop in and see if Jack could be your new furry, four-legged companion!

Is this Spanky's dog, or what!? R. B. would fit right in with the Little Rascals. With his friendly, calm, and laid back personality he would make the perfect pet for any family. He is also housebroken and pending a visit, he could be a good fit for a family with other dogs too! R.B. is gentle and loving but can be a bit needy at times. He was brought to the shelter because his previous owner was moving and could not take him along. This wonderful senior deserves another chance to be part of something great - your family! Remember, old men need loving too! Stop in and see R.B.!
