Featured Pet: Higgins

Handsome Higgins is one striking kitty! At three years old, he came to us from a bit of a sad situation, but you would never know it! This gorgeous tiger is so playful, active, and fun, we could spend hours just watching him run! His high energy can make him a bit overwhelming for some cats, but he is the perfect companion for our older kittens and has even sparked a “bromance” with one of our long-time residents, Dusty! Watching Higgins play with the kittens and bring out the energetic side of Dusty is such a joy. Not only does he love playing with other cats, but he loves his people too! With a feather toy and some treats, you are sure to be his best friend! After a long play session, Higgins loves nothing more than getting some chin scratches on one of his favorite perches!

Higgins could get along with another kitty playmate, but it would have be the right fit! He would do great in an adult home, as he can get a little nervous at times and doesn’t seem to love kids. Although he is active, you will often find him stretched out on a comfy bed or curled up on a tall perch taking a nap. He would do great in a home where he could get lots of play time and even more love!

Featured Pet: Hera

Five year old Hera came to Our Companions after she was surrendered to a local municipal shelter.

When Hera first arrived, she was clearly incredibly frightened and had experienced some scary things during her first few years. Slowly but surely, Hera has blossomed at the Sanctuary and is truly a wonderful dog. She takes some time to warm up to new people and doesn’t always want to be outside of her safe zone, but once she knows you, she is an absolute love! Hera loves her Nylabones, digging in her sandbox, and has an impressive ability to catch treats with ease! She is a very calm and well-behaved pup who loves nothing more than curling up on a comfy couch for some lazy time after a long walk or some free time in the play yard.

Hera would do best as the only pup in a home, but she can get along well with other animals after she gets to know them. Hera will need an adopter who can appreciate her calm, laid-back demeanor and respect her nervous nature. This is a dog would do well in a quiet, adult home with a fenced-in backyard where she can prance around and play fetch without worrying about the world around her. Although we love her very much, she is so ready to go to her forever home and can’t wait to meet her perfect match!
