Adult male domestic short hair

Phineus was returned to CCAD recently with a urinary blockage and bladder close to exploding. He needed emergency medical care to survive! We didn’t hesitate to get Phineus the care he needed; and now this over-the-top affectionate young male cat is stable, doing well on his prescription food, and taking his new job as Office Cat seriously! Phineus is now ready to find his FOREVER home! This amazingly-sweet young adult cat will need a home where he can continue on his prescription food diet to prevent future blockages. He is super easy-going, loves laps, loves children and other cats, and would fit into any home willing to work with his medical condition. Please call us at 410-643-9955 for more information about Phineus!

Adult female pit bull

Pebbles is a four year old blue pit bull who is absolutely starved for human attention, eager to please, and affectionate. She just had her LAST LITTER OF PUPPIES in March of 2015, after being used as a breeder her whole life. She’s been a great mom and now deserves to find a great home!
