Meet the members of our

Secret Crush Club

Many of our shelter pets' adoption fees have been paid by a secret admirer. So, use the money you save to buy them the best bed they've ever had - to match your home, the nicest home they'll ever have.

If you find yourself falling in love with any of these secret crush club members, you can find more information about each animal under the Adoptable Dogs and Adoptable Cats tabs. 

Interested in helping a shelter pet get the spotlight they deserve? You can cover their adoption fee and remove a big hurdle for their gotcha day. Email our Director of Development, Suzie Sloan, to learn more.
