Meet Madison, an incredible dog who is fun-loving and social. She play-bows to every single dog she sees and appears to have a particular soft spot for young puppies. Her exuberant energy puts a smile on everyone's faces; she has a zest for life that's hard to beat. Like all young dogs, Madison will benefit from ongoing socialization and fun, dog-friendly training. She'd probably have a blast in our Basic Obedience classes.
Marshal Gibbons is a cat who will bring joy and excitement to your life. His stature is substantial, and his heart is even bigger. He's a cat who values family time, whether that means lounging on the couch to watch home movies, keeping you company as you do the dishes, drawing you into a fun game of pounce on the laser pointer, or taking part in a riveting game of Scrabble! However, he would be equally happy to spend his life hanging out with a single lifelong pal. Basically, Marshal Gibbons is here to spread the love. He is instantly fond of everybody he meets, and you are bound to be just as fond of him in return.
Here's what his foster says: "Marshal is a big dude of a cat, but he is very affectionate once he gets settled into a new environment. He can get a little spooked about new or startling noises, but he isn't very skittish in general. He prefers to be in the same room as people, and he will seek your attention when he wants it by coming close to you and even putting himself in the way of whatever you are up to."
