Shelby 9 15 DsRoger wrote, We picked up our new family member on Saturdayy the 15th and brought her home to meet our two other dogs Callie Dixie. We new our 3 year old German Shepherd would love having a full of energy 9 month old cattle dog to play with. We were right. The two of them hit it off immediately and have been running and playing in our 1 1/4 acre yard ever since. Of course when they wear themselves out they let themselves in the dog door and crash on the couch, dog bed, floor or wherever they find it most comfortable. Our eleven year old dog likes our new girl also but leaves the running and playing to the youngsters. I've included a couple of pictures with Shelby and her new best friend Callie. We all love our new family member and look forward to lots of great times together.

One good day I walked in to volunteer walking the dogs, and I saw the cutest Jack Russell Terrier mix ever!! I fell in love immediately and we decided to bring him home. He is the best gift from God, he makes us the happiest people. We only regret not have done it before. Adopting a pet is saving a life, and that's priceless. 


Waffles 8 15c

Andrea wrote,  My family and I went for two days trying to figure out what kitten would best fit our family. On the second day "Puddy" now renamed Waffles stood out to me and the kids. She was the only cat we played with and we knew SHE was the one. The next day she was spayed and we got to pick her up. She has an amazing personality and is wonderful with the kids, ages 7, 6, and 3. She loves being around people, sleeps on the bed with my youngest, and at first I thought it was my daughter putting her in a fake shopping cart and pushing her around, but turns out, its the kitten that likes jumping in there and getting pushed around the house like a baby. She truly is the perfect addition to our family.


Buttercup and Stampy Cat

Nicole wrote, After losing our family cat to old age last year, we were finally ready to welcome a new family member. We intended to adopt one cat but immediately fell in love with the brother and sister cat kenneled together that we could not separate these precious siblings. Since taking them home they adapted quickly and are thriving in their new home. They are so playful with each other and loving too. There bond is beautiful to see! They have added so much joy to our family I never could have imagined!

ulie wrote, Cotton had been at the shelter for about 2 months, Apparently she was abandoned there by her previous owners and had some health issues that she was getting treatment for. Since bringing her home, she's doing great! She acts so happy and grateful to be here. She loves playing with the other dogs and fits right in, and even sleeps in our bed. We were pleasantly surprised that she was already house trained! We are very happy to have her as part of our family. 


Kiaya 7 15

Breanna wrote, Kiaya is a beautiful girl inside and out and she has brought nothing but love, joy, and laughter into our home. From the very first day I met her she greeted me with lots of kisses and affection and now I wake up every morning with a big sweet kiss right in my face. I never would have thought I would have a pit bull family member, but Kiaya has helped open my heart and see how incredible these dogs really are. I am grateful to CAP and all of their incredible staff members that helped bring our beloved girl into our home and our lives and I encourage anyone looking to adopt to have an open mind when choosing a breed. It was the best decision I have ever ma
