Rocko is a very sweet, 8.5 year old Mastiff mix.  He was surrendered with Kita when their owner’s housing situation changed.  The two do not need to be adopted together but preference would be given to someone interested in adopting both.  Rocko loves nothing more than to take leisurely walks and lie next to you with his head on your lap.  Rocko is not yet neutered, and we will decide whether that can happen safely upon consultation with our vet.  He is current on shots, is housebroken and walks well on leash.  If you have room in your heart to spoil this gentle old man in his last years, please visit him at the shelter or email us at  Adoption fees will be waived for the right applicant or a forever foster situation could also be considered. Because of his age and size, we will not adopt Rocko to a  home with small children or cats.

Kita is a 7.5 year old pitfbull mix that was surrendered with Rocko when their owner’s living situation changed.  Although she is technically a senior, Kita still has a lot of spunk.  She loves playing with toys and almost always can be found with a Kong in her mouth.  Kita and Rocko do not need to be adopted together but preference would be given to someone interested in adopting both dogs.  Kita can be a bit possessive with her toys so we will not adopt her to a family with young children.  She can also be a bit nervous around new people, but warms up once she knows you are not a threat.  Kita is pending spay surgery, if the vet believes it can be done safely.  She is fully housebroken, walks well on leash and up to date on vaccines.
