Our Best Friends
After being cat-less for nearly 3 years, Leslie’s family adopted a scrawny kitty from the shelter. Since then, the now 12 pound Rudy has become a cherished family member, chattering at the birds outside the window then curling up for a snooze atop the kitchen cabinets. Rudy’s affectionate nature was obvious right from the start, and he is named for the legendary film heartthrob, Rudolph Valentino. Rudy comes fully equipped with the best feline options, including Insta – Purr, automatic alarm clock and four-paw traction control. While he can yowl with the best of them, Rudy’s most common vocalizations are chirps and squeaks.
Stella is a Bernese Mountain Dog and joined Lisa’s family on Leap Day of 2008. She is very easy going and loves giving hugs!

Thankfully with amazing veterinary care her health remains good. She is being managed with close veterinary supervision as well as daily medicine and monthly injections. She continues her life of luxury taking long naps and cuddling on the sofa. She’s continuing to amaze her family and veterinarian as she approaches age 13.
After a one-time peak of 3 dogs and 3 cats in his life, Michael’s finally lost his one remaining cat “Crash” to cancer in the spring of 2014 and found himself “petless” for the first time in 29 years!

Little did they know they would be coming home with a brother and sister later that day! These two kittens are now the joy of their life and they sleep in front of Michael’s computer screen almost daily as he works.
