Meet Your Perfect Match You could be gazing at the animal of your dreams, but you can't tell what she's thinking behind that furry face. What if you knew a little something about her personality and habits before you move in together? We are the guardians for all the animals in our care and want every cat and dog find the home and family best suited for them. But not every animal will do well in every home. There is a knack to finding a good match and we pride ourselves on taking the necessary steps and time to do that.
