Chase is a beautiful 7 year old border collie/Australian shepherd mix.  Chase has been at the shelter since December when he was tested for heartworms and positive.  Since then, Chase has done his treatment at the shelter. As of May 22, Chase is now negative for heartworms!  Chase is ready to be fixed and get out of the shelter.  He seems to like everyone and everything.  He especially loves romping through the snow too.  Chase is a real winner anyone would be lucky to have.

BA is a mama with a story.  BA was brought to the shelter with her three little babies after her family was taken to jail.  BA was very scared, and luckily she was able to go straight to a foster.  In foster, BA was a wonderful mommy.  She even accepted another baby who needed a mom too.  BA enjoyed spending time with her babies and raising them, but she has had enough.  She is ready to retire from motherhood and go to her forever home!  BA has been around other cats, kittens, and dogs and done ok with them so far.  She is a beautiful girl who also loves people.  Come meet this sweetheart and give her the forever after she deserves.
