Meet Gilly and Missy, our pets of the week.

I’m Gilly, a five year old Pointer mix looking to settle down with my new family. I’m an all-around sweet guy who likes other dogs and all people (no cats please!). I tend to be a bit exuberant when I play, so I would need to live with another dog and older kids that could handle my play style. I would really enjoy a new family that is active and ready to include me in all of their fun. Ideally my home would include a canine friend to play with, kids to be silly around, and adults who will cuddle with me at the end of the day! Come meet me today- I know you will be happy that you did. Like all the pets at HSFN I am neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on all vaccines.

Hi there. It’s me, Missy. I’m a young at heart ten year old kitty who is ready to make someone the best companion. You can find me spending my days in the office here where I like to just watch the world go by. I’m a bit shy in this environment with all of the hustle and bustle, and need a quiet home where I can have some time to settle in. You’ll recognize me by my gorgeous markings, and once you’re drawn in by my pretty looks don’t forget to scratch my chin- I love that! I know that with a little time to learn to trust I will be a wonderful addition to your family and a great pet for anyone in need of some company and TLC. Don’t forget, all new adopters receive a FREE first Vet visit to your choice of 16 area vets.
