Hi, I'm Pip! I was one of two runts in a litter of TEN puppies from Mississippi! Can you imagine? I had to work hard to become the big boy that I am now!
Many of my siblings have left my side at this point, and I'd really like a family to call my own. Don't you want a sweet, lovable puppy to be your new snuggle buddy? I love children, cats, other dogs... you name it! My foster mom's house is full of pets and people, and I grew up with 9 other crazy puppers; I'm practically bomb proof!
Do you like big mutts with huge smiles? If so, I am your man! Weighing in at 85 lbs of love I am the largest lap dog you could ever hope to meet. Yep, you read that right! I just love to sit in my foster dad's lap. It was love at first sight for me.
At just 2 1/2 years old, I am in doggie adolescence. Like all adolescents I need patience and consistent training to mature into the awesome dog I am destined to be.
Darby is a handsome, super sweet mixed breed with a great personality. He is 5 years old but you would never know as he doesn’t look a day over 3…at least that’s what he will tell you! Darby is a perfect size weighing in at around 40 pounds, ideal for sharing forts in the backyard for scheming summer shenanigans.
Darby loves to go for walks! When he sees the leash and harness come out he is ready to hit the pavement. Tennis balls are his absolute FAVORITE, if you are up to it he will fetch that ball for you as long as you let him. He knows his basic commands of sit, down, and a little bit of stay. He is getting slow intros with other dogs via walks where they bark at him, he looks their way, nods his head, and says “what’s up bro” and keeps on trucking. We will continue to gather information on how Darby interacts with other dogs but so far so good.
In addition, we are still learning how he gets along with kids and will update as we learn.
My name is Sadie and I am about 5 years old. I’m a pittie mix (I think!) and really want to be your new best friend. I’m up to date on all my vaccinations, including heart worm and flea/tick and I’m already spayed.
I do OK with dog saavy cats and I’m ok with other dogs that live in my foster home. I love to play and I have so much energy and really want to be on the trails, out running, or going on adventures! The couch might be my new favorite place when I'm in the house though! I would benefit from a quiet home with an experienced owner.
Hello! Let me introduce myself -- my name is Spirit! This is probably because I am a small dog with a big personality. I'm only 6 lbs (and 6 years old), but that doesn't stop me from making sure everyone knows where they stand in my world. I can be a bit possessive with my toys and food, so I'd do best in a quiet home with older children or adults who will respect my space and help me learn to share. When I'm feeling cuddly, I'll will jump into your lap for chin, head, and nose rubs. We can watch TV together while I curl up on your lap!
Alliby (AKA Allie) is a wonderful little kitty. She is very curious and she loves to follow you around the house. She loves affection and is very friendly.
She is on the smaller side with a beautiful, soft calico coat that barely sheds.
Allie is twelve years young, but she looks and acts like a much younger kitty! She is always bouncing around, exploring boxes, sleeping under blankets and making herself little nests on the couch.
Ryu is a super sweet brown and white boy who was found as a stray in Everett. After being fostered briefly so he could be treated for an infection in his front claws (ow-ee), he's ready to find the purrfect human and his furever home!

Maureen is shy, but loves pets and brushings. She is a sweet and gentle soul -- will you be the one to bring her out of her shell and offer her a loving home? She is super active when she’s in her room at night and we hope she can show her playful side to her human friends soon.
Lip is a sweet brown and white tabby boy, two years old, with a cute pink nose. Lip can be a little shy but shows great lovebug potential.
Icee is a sweet tortie girl who's friendly, enjoys attention, and can't wait for her forever home so she can get started on a new life of shared love, cuddles, and companionship!
Icee has a congenital eye condition that required eye surgery which has been done successfully, but she still needs a minor surgical procedure to remove some eyelashes to make everything work well.
