Just the DOGS! Just the CATS!


Pet of the Month

Our pet of the month...


Hi! My name is Spice, and I have quite a story to tell. I was a stray who had just given birth to 8 puppies in someone's barn in January of 2009, and the kind person was concerned about me and my pups out in the cold, and brought me to CFC where I could raise my babies in warmth and safety. I was a great Mom, and all my pups have been adopted now. I've been spayed and vaccinated, and now I'm just waiting for that special someone! I'm a Hound Mix who was born sometime in 2008, and although I was quite shy when I arrived at CFC, I've come out of my shell. Please come and meet me!

Spice is up-to-date with routine shots and spayed/neutered. .

News

A new residence for our beloved cats has been completed. The new building, which will house all of Caring For Creature's cats, is a self contained residence and working environment.

Doggie Manners Classes at Caring For Creatures have been going ahead full-speed. Dogs are getting trained in proper doggie etiquette in order to be a civilized, welcomed member of their human family.

Please visit our website for detailed information and additional happenings at Caring For Creatures.
