Available for Adoption





Boone is a two year old beagle who is not so sure where he belongs. His true loving and sweet personality hides behind fear. He takes his time warming up and trusting, but once he knows he has nothing to fear he full of kisses and love. Boone will need a home with a securely fenced in yard, as his name implies, like the great explorer Daniel Boone, he does have a strong desire to explore and wander. Because of this he will also need a home with no small children. Boone has a lot to offer the right family, maybe that’s you!

Holden "Claw"Field

Holden “Claw”Field

Holden “Claw”field is wonderful little boy who, like his namesake, is both naive and cynical of the world around him. Holden at just 4 months old is seeing life with wide eyes- so much to take in, with the hustle and bustle of people going about their days, the sun shining brightly on something new to him…But Holden also, at just 4 months old, has already seen enough apathy to make him wary of the new faces encountered. Huddled alone in the big world, most people walked past him, paying him little mind, too focused in their own tasks at hand to notice a tiny boy in need of a simple meal, a warm bed, and a gentle voice.


Holden is now here and is beginning to learn that kindness is the rule and not the exception to the uncaring ways he has seen so far. No longer does he huddle in fear. Now he watches new faces with an open mind, and an open heart. Holden is ready to take on his greatest adventure with a loving family to call his own and grow up along with. If you can commit to being a part of holden’s life for the next 15+ years, he would love to be there, right by your side!
