Meet Jimmy Ruffett - a senior guy looking for a hospice home. Jimmy, although an older guy, is still spry and spirited. He'll let you know what he's thinking, give you face kisses, and spend the day sitting in your lap. Jimmy came into us as a stray, so all of his history is unknown to us. What we do know about Jimmy is that he'd like to live out his days wasting away again in Margaritaville. If you're someone who lives by the motto "it's 5 o'clock somewhere" then Jimmy might be just the right guy for you! Jimmy is a "take him as he is" sort of guy and our clinic will not be putting him under anesthesia for a neuter due to his age/health condition.

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website ( or in person at our facility. We recommend calling into the shelter after your application has been submitted so our front desk can give you next steps on our adoption process.
