Bentley

Listing Date: November 10, 2019

Birth Date: January 1, 2016

Weight: 48 pounds

Breed: Labrador retriever/German short hair mix

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: Up to date

Physical Description: Bentley is full grown at 48 pounds.

Personality Description: Bentley is such a lover! An always eager-to-please pup. He is house-trained, gets along well with other dogs, and has never been aggressive. He doesn’t bark at other dogs and is calm-mannered. He loves to relax, but his favorite things are running outside, playing fetch, and hiking.

History: He has protein-losing enteropathy, which means his body doesn’t process fat. He cannot have regular dog food, rather his vet has formulated a diet that works well for him. It’s $80 a month for this food. Furthermore, I make couscous and baked tilapia twice a week for him and store it in the fridge. His health insurance is transferable, and 90% of all possible future medical is covered. It also covers his monthly supplements, which cost $6 a month. He’s more than worth it. He’s the most loving dog you’ll ever meet. Call or text me (720) 793-6960 if interested to set up a meet and greet!

Simba

Listing Date: October 30, 2019

Birth Date: March 27, 2019

Breed: Tabby

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: vaccinations are up to date

Physical Description: Beautiful orange tabby male with "classic" pattern.

Personality Description: He is very playful and may benefit from a home with an owner who can give him a lot of play time or with another energetic kitten to keep up with him and wear him out. He has a very loud purr and loves neck scratches. He is affectionate, but not yet a lap cat. He’d rather play with you than lay on you! He is a great jumper when playing with his feather wand toys and happily walks off with his “prey” after a successful pounce. He is a good eater and litter box user and scratches only on the appropriate posts. He will take treats directly from your hand. We will provide all medical records and his favorite toys.

History: He was found on a busy road in Chapel Hill when he was 5 months old. He has since been fully vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped by his foster parents. They hoped to assimilate him into their home, but the current cat in the home is very territorial and does not tolerate him or his energy level. She assumes his rough kitten play is an attack, so she growls, hisses, and ultimately hides from him and needs to be in a separate room. This is not fair for either cat. We'd love to help this fun boy find his forever home.

Zoey

Listing Date: October 4, 2019

Birth Date: March 17, 2014

Weight: 17 pounds

Breed: Domestic Short Hair

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: rabies shot up to date

Physical Description: Black and white

Personality Description: Zoey is 5+years old and is an only cat. She is indoor only. I adopted her 5 years ago, she was found on the street, without a mom. I am giving her up because of behavioral issues. She is still very loving, but she has a lot of small issues that I can no longer handle and are just causing me a lot of anxiety. I believe she would thrive in a home with an owner that is there more often. Some of her behavioral issues are: Pooping right outside her litter box. I started using multiple boxes and the problem has gotten a lot better, but i don't have enough space in my apartment for a permanent solution. (She never learned to cover her poop or pee, so that probably does not help). Hissing at everyone that comes over, even when they are not in her space, she hisses when people talk sometimes even. Very territorial. Very anxious, jumps up with the smallest noise. I have used the calming collar, feliway and solutions of that kind. I recently took her to the vet and got Gabapentin for situations where i know she will be stressed. She has not been around other animals, so I don't know how she would react to them.

History: She is microchipped
