Casey, a 9-year-old female cocker spaniel, is a surrender because her owner died. She’s friendly and bashful, and loves to be pet and cuddled.
Payaso, a 3-year-old male mixed breed, is over 80 pounds but is as sweet as they come. It takes him a moment to warm up to new friends, but once he does, he’s very loving and affectionate. Payaso enjoys slow and steady pets as well as string cheese. Shelter evaluators think Payaso would do best as the only pet in a patient home that will allow him time to adjust. He has tested positive for heartworm, but FAMD covers the cost of the treatment.
Fiji, a 13-week-old male domestic shorthair, is affectionate and sweet.
