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?
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?
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.
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 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!
Meet Brittany and Bridgette. They are sisters who are ready to fly the nest and make their own way. Though they enjoy playing together and spending time together, they wouldn't mind having their own special someone to love. Bridgette leans on Brittany for a lot of confidence, but she is growing stronger every day. Both are very sweet and would love some personal one on one attention. Here at ORHS, they are learning how to walk on a leash, how to play with toys, and how to get the volunteers to give them treats. They almost have the volunteers trained. Won't you consider giving one or both of them a Furever home?
These handsome bonded brothers are just about as perfect as you can get! Found with two other siblings out in the woods, Hercules is the tuxedo and Mercury is the beautiful marble tabby. Both are exceptionally snuggly, affectionate and incredibly playful! And, as if they couldn’t get any better, these boys purr like the engines of two finely tuned automobiles. Their foster mom says one of their favorite pastimes is to nap completely intwined in the arms of the other…absolutely adorable to see!
We are looking for a home where these boys can stay together. Hercules and Mercury offer a lifetime of fun, excitement and just pure love to anyone lucky enough to take them into their family.
Otis is our 12-year-old Beagle who is looking for his retirement home. Otis is a world traveler and would like to finally settle down for the remainder of his years. Now that he has come to ORHS, he is having his needs taken care of and getting healthy.
Life on the road has been a little rough and he knows it’s time to have a soft spot to land. Otis is good with other dogs, especially young puppies. He has been an exceptionally good companion to his foster mom. If you would like to have Otis come to share his life stories with you, fill out an application for him. He would love to sit and reminisce his glory days with you.
Phyllis resembles the glamorous Abyssinian breed portrayed in paintings and sculptures of the ancient Egyptian cats which show an elegant feline with a muscular body.
With long legs in proportion to her lean body, big green eyes, short silky blonde hair, she looks like a Supermodel when she struts her stuff. Phyllis is approximately 8 pounds and because she is full of extraordinary energy she never has to diet. She is naturally small and slender.
Phyllis has an intelligent, extroverted, playful personality. With her almond shaped green eyes, long pointed ears and inquisitive expression, you can’t help but fall in love with her. She is clearly attentive, she listens to you, but, unlike Alexa, she will keep your secret’s.
She is also a graceful athlete. She will approach you on her terms but invites you to exercise, climb a pole, play or explore with her whenever you are available. She loves people and other cats but may not be your ideal lap cat.
Phyllis came to ORHS after being rescued through a trap/neuter/release program in 2016. Although she is stunning and physically active, you don’t have to worry about her getting in “the family way.” She was able to leave her wild ways behind her when she was spayed so that she, and you, don’t have to worry about all the unwanted attention being so attractive usually brings.
Phyllis loves Savage Garden (from her feral years). She has a private meditation she repeats and she hopes you will take her to her Purrfect Place:
Like in your eyes, I see my future in an instant
I think I found my best friend
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life
A thousand angels dance around you
I am complete now that I’ve found you.
Gus is a genuine cutie! He is good with kids and other dogs. He isn't shy at all and is very welcoming to new people. He is a snuggle bug. At times he gets so excited he trips over his own feet. But mind your socks, he loves to steal them and hide them from you.
Gus is a 1+ year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix. He is a little guy weighing in at only 35 pounds. He would make the perfect family dog and a great companion animal.
This pretty little lady is Betsy. She was an outdoor kitty at a home where an elderly lady lived before going into an assisted living situation. Betsy came to us last Spring, pregnant with 4 kittens. The beautiful babies have all been safely tucked into their forever homes and now it’s her turn!
Betsy is 2-3 years old and would be a great indoor-outdoor cat. She does, however, need to be the only cat and would do well in a home without very young children. Betsy LOVES to sit on your lap and is very affectionate. If you are looking for a fun, affectionate companion, this girl is for you!
The meaning of the name Bellamy is “fine friend” and this beautiful girl is ready to live up to her name! Bellamy came to ORHS in late January and surprised us all when she gave birth to one puppy, which we named Uno. Bellamy was a very caring mother and Uno will be available for adoption when he is old enough. Now it’s time for Bellamy to find a forever home.
Here’s what we know about Bellamy: we believe she is two years old and is a bulldog/ terrier mix. She loves her daily walks with ORHS volunteers and leads the way to the local bank for treats. She enjoys being outside and is content to relax in the sun. She loves toys and when given the chance will jump from her pen in the shelter to choose a new one and take it back to cuddle with. Bellamy loves being petted and is learning to trust both women and men. We believe Bellamy will be happiest as the only dog in the family. Won’t you give Bellamy the chance to show you what a fine friend she can be?
SIMBA our little Tripawd King who has a BIG personality. He loves to talk to his neighboring canine fellas. And his sweet barks and playfulness grabs the attention of all volunteers. His eyes are absolutely mesmerizing.
This is what his foster had to say....
“Despite his rough start to life Simba has the heart of a lion. He’s happy, determined, sweet, funny, playful, independent, fearless, vibrant, adorable puppy who needs someone to help him continue to grow steady and strong. He listens, connects and wants to please. He has great determination and moves well but when he stumbles, he lands like a champ. He needs protection from obstacles but very little guidance. He loves spending time outdoors discovering new smells and sounds. Easy to train, doing well in the early stages of obedience and potty training. Sleeps all night in his crate. Simba is a wonder ! A special beautiful boy that will bring a lot of joy”.
Imagine if your whole family moved away and left you behind…alone. That’s exactly what happened to Gigi. She suddenly found herself all alone and outside, which is exactly where a girl like Gigi should not be: Gigi has tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). While cats with FIV can live long, healthy lives, the disease can compromise the immune system and can make routine illnesses (like respiratory infections) harder on the body. It is not transmissible to humans and is only known to be transmitted to other cats by means of deep bite wounds.
Gigi is exceptionally affectionate and was obviously very loved at some point. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. This 2-3 year young lady will be a wonderful companion to someone lucky enough to see her beauty and potential.
Feel free to contact ORHS for more information about Gigi. Ask for Kari.
LADY GAGA .... That's me. I was born with the cutest feet. The outward feet never stops me from running with my playmates in the yard at ORHS. I get along with all dogs and I am fine with cats as well. I am in great shape but believe it or not I am food driven. I am smart and easily trainable, if you have a few kibbles in your hand. I walk great on leash with other dogs ... I always hear my volunteers calling me the "model child". Yup, come take me home, ... you won't be disappointed. And did I tell you ? ... I am very pretty. TAKE ME HOME !!
This shy, but sweet, little lady is an absolute joy and wants nothing more than a family to call her own. Trixie loves to be petted and will reciprocate with head butts all day long. But since she is shy, Trixie will need a quiet home without small children. We think she would be overjoyed to spend the bulk of her day sitting next to her special person on the couch, binge watching chick flix or talk shows. If you need a buddy to share your popcorn with (that won't fight you for the remote), this just might be the girl for you!
