Sunny truly wants to be your best friend! This pup has a heart of gold. He is quite the cuddler and is well behaved. He came from an unstable background so he has some anxiety with strangers. He occasionally growls when being pet but has never bitten/tried to bite anyone. He does not bark. He is selective about his dog friends. Sunny is very good on leash and loves to hike. He is a bit reactive on leash when around dogs sometimes. He would make the best companion for someone who does not have kids and ideally does not work long hours. Sunny is loyal and loving beyond compare- you can see it in his smile!

Palin is a Cincinnati gal with a take-no-prisoners attitude who landed in California after her previous owner moved into assisted living. Miss Priss, as she's been dubbed, loves affection (on her terms) and is always ravenous for salmon kibble. Palin is 11 years old but has bouts of high energy and loves to chase a laser. She can usually be found curled up in a box (or by your side) for a nap. Palin has cohabited peacefully with dogs, but is known to be cantankerous around a fellow cat. We can't wait for you to meet her—we know she'll steal your heart (and treats).

Molly is the most friendly, confident, and loving cat I have come across. If I was not leaving for school I would have her indefinitely. She is extremely hyper and will play with just about anything. She's super curious and adventurous. Molly loves to jump on everything and follow you into every room you go into. She is super talkative and will say hello along with give you kisses. She adapted really quick to her new home previously and had zero issues with using the bathroom. She is an over stimulated cat but if your looking for a loving, attentive, cat companion she is the perfect match. The only issue that I've come across, is she does not seem to get along with other cats/animals. My parents have two other cats at their house and she gets nervous and starts to hiss or even growl at times. It could just be the other cats are provoking and taunting her but she stands her ground. I would say its recommended she is the only dog or cat in the household unless you're patient enough to go through the integration process with the new pets and current.
