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!

Featured Pet: Sophie

Stunning Sophie will certainly stop you in your tracks!

This 2-year-old tortoiseshell has big, bright eyes and a sunny disposition. Sophie absolutely loves people and will stand at her door waiting for someone to come in and give her lots of love. Volunteers just love stopping into the office to spend time with this affectionate, lovable kitty.

Sophie came to Our Companions from a difficult situation, along with several of her feline friends. Once she made it to the Sanctuary, we discovered that though she came to us with other cats, Sophie would be MUCH happier as the only kitty in her forever home. But have no fear! This spunky girl has more than enough personality on her own and will keep you entertained for hours with her playful personality and love for chasing feather toys! She has even learned how to use a treat-dispensing ball and it is so fun to watch her bat it around the room in search of some tasty snacks. Sophie would do great with a family that is able to give her all the love she deserves and will always be ready to give her snuggles and scratches after a long day of playing!

Watch Sophie’s new video, she is quite irresistible.
