This high-steppin’ fella (he actually struts on his walks) sure has a lot of character and like to show it! He is a 3-year-old Jack Russel Terrier/mix that was found as a stray and is adjusting nicely to life as an indoor dog. We feel he would do best in a home with older children. He’s playful and fun!
Cowboy earned his name after being found living in a horse stable. He was very young when he came to us, but is now 9-months old. He is a very shy little guy, but is happy to be petted. His silky black fur is gorgeous and he loves to be brushed.
This sweet, loving, 4-year-old came to us when her owners both passed away and we are doing all we can to find her furr-ever home as soon as possible. With her beautiful coat and those amazing blue eyes (which are adorably slightly crossed) we think this home is close by. We believe Kiki would do very well as a single kitty in a quiet home. Could that be yours?
One-year-old Angus was found with a wire as a collar – but he didn’t let this affect his love of people or his outlook on life at all! He is 50 lbs. of fun – ready for a walk or to learn agility tricks in the yard. His neck injury is healing nicely and he is ready to put that part of his life behind him. He is looking for brighter days ahead.
In one word, Layla is wiggly! She holds the record for the fastest tail wags and will greet you with a play bow. She walks great on a leash and loves to interact with the adult dogs and the puppies at the shelter. She is only 3-years-old and would love to have you teach her some new tricks
Snoopy is the patriarch of the ORHS cats and we think he is the absolute best! Being 11 years old, he is a super social guy who strangely enough, enjoys water – he even has his very own “kitty pool” at the center. He also enjoys lounging on his hammock in the catio and watching the birds. We think it is time Snoopy finds a furever home – could it be yours
This cute little 5-month-old kitty was found in a garbage dumpster but hit the jackpot when he arrived at ORHS. He is adorable and is an absolute love when he gets to know you. Angelo loves to play by himself but is becoming more social over time. We believe he would prefer to be the only pet in the household. Contact us to make an appointment to meet Angelo!
Sometimes we see that big dog hearts come in small dog bodies – such as with our sweet Christa. She is a 1-year-old terrier mix, weighing only about 20 lb. – the perfect size for extended lap time! Her personality has blossomed since coming to us as a stray. She now has a waggly tail, listens well, walks nicely on leash and just wants to be a part of the action. Are you her person?
Initiated by Doris Day and her Animal League in 1995, this annual campaign urges dog and cat lovers to save animal lives and control population by spaying and neutering. This will help already living animals find their loving forever homes. Every life is worth saving and every effort helps. Your donations to ORHS allow us to spay or neuter every animal in our care before heading home.
3-year-old Quincy is an amazing guy that seems to be everything an orange tabby should be: social, playful and pretty much the total package. Tabbys are known to be friendly and love to hang with their families – they are gentle by nature and enjoy being and center of attention – always ready to play!
Charlie is a 2-year-old shepherd/mix weighing about 40 lbs. - the perfect size for many. He is gentle and sweet and desperately wants to please. He has fast become a favorite among ORHS volunteers. He walks nicely on leash and is learning basic commands. We don’t know much about his past – but we know he is looking for a bright future. Could it be with you?
February 22 is National Walk the Dog Day! What better way to combine two of the most happy-making things we have in life: dogs and exercise. In fact, a group of ORHS volunteers meets every morning at the shelter at 8:30 am to walk the dogs that are in our care! Besides giving the dogs exercise and socialization, we teach leash etiquette and basic commands, making the dogs even more adoptable! Want to join this group of happy dog lovers? Contact us for more information.
Good Golly – it’s Molly!
Molly is an absolutely adorable 1-year-old little lady. She is very affectionate and loves to snuggle in your arms…or perhaps on your bed! She has a super sweet personality and would be a great companion to existing pets or as an only kitty! Her black and orange coloring is very unique!
This 10-month-old retriever/lab mix has it all – beauty, brains and personality, too! She loves people and dogs, and enjoys playing with her ORHS friends! She walks great on a leash and knows sit, shake and down…for a treat, of course! Maggie will make a great addition to any family.
At just about 3-months of age, Rusty has already lived a full life. He was born onto a property where he was one of many dogs – but when he came to us his individuality and personality started to shine. He is a sweet, laid-back pup who has lots of love to give. He’ll greet you with a tail wag and plead for attention with his darling eyes. His mom, Ivy is also available for adoption.
Kirby is a sweet, affectionate gentleman that was recently returned to ORHS because his mom could no longer care for him. At 4 ½ years of age, he is still very playful and has a wonderful personality. If you are looking for a young adult that is still pretty active, Kirby just might be the guy for you! Give him a minute and he’ll give you his heart!
Gentle, sweet and social, this beautiful brindle tigress is named Ivy. She is the kind of gal who is up for running around the yard but truly appreciates the way sun shines through a window and a good blanket. Her soulful eyes tell an interesting story. Ivy was one of many dogs, and her resulting litter of puppies, accidental and unwanted. Ivy and her little pack found themselves at their local county animal services before finally landing safely at ORHS. Ivy raised five beautiful puppies, leaving her thin and tired. Not only does she need a healthy helping, she needs love, refuge, a home. Please note, Ivy is not cat friendly. If you are interested in meeting Ivy, please complete our adoption application (https://www.orhspets.org/adopt-a-dog.html) and we will be in touch. We, Ivy especially, look forward to hearing from you.
MJ is a terrier mix just over a 1 year old. She came to us after her owner was no longer able to care for her due to physical limitations. She will melt your heart with her sweet disposition and desire to nuzzle up beside you. She can walk on a leash and takes treats gently from your hand. She is patiently waiting for her new home.
Gypsy is a beautiful little lady who was recently returned to the shelter due to the death in her adopter. She purrs and is very sweet when you approach her. Gypsy has spent her entire life with another cat but we think she will do just fine being the only cat and the center of your attention! If you're looking for a sweetheart and a pretty one at that, Gypsy is the girl for you!
This sweet one year old young man was left behind by his family at a local campground. Fred is a young adult that has been the most fun since coming to ORHS not that long ago. He’s very playful and adjust quickly to new things and new surroundings. The only thing we can find that Fred is not a fan of is young children. He is looking for someone that loves to play, too, but also someone he can snuggle with at night. What a true love bug!
Tootsie is a young DECLAWED adult female that we rescued from animal control. She is a very sweet girl that just loves interaction with people. However, Tootsie doesn't enjoy the company of other cats...so she needs to be the only cat in the household. This sweet girl is very playful and really likes catnip! For a family looking for a great companion, Tootsie is the one for you!
This eight-year-old puppy is patiently awaiting his forever home. He lives life with a bounce in his step and appreciates the little things.
Smokey has been spending his days in foster care, spooning on the couch, gazing into the lake, and soliciting belly rubs. He takes belly rubs very seriously and will physically place your hand on the sweet spot!
Smokey sailed smoothly into home life by catching on quickly with house training, crate training and knowing which parts of the home he is invited. Smokey sleeps quietly in his crate at night but admits he would rather sleep on his other bed or with his human.
His pastimes include being copilot on errands in the car, resting his chin on your knee when you are working from home, being a kitchen connoisseur, and boat rides. This boy was made for lake life!
Smokey is currently undergoing heartworm treatment and is doing great. Want to know more about the treatment or set up a meeting with the one and only, Smokey? We look forward to hearing from you!
Gypsy is 2/1/2 years old and came to us recently when her owner passed away. Gypsy is a very sweet girl that loves attention. She would prefer a quieter household without young children, but is very used to being with other cats. Gypsy would be the perfect companion for movie watching or other around the house activities.
