Weasley is the sweetest 9 year old tabby cat you'll ever meet. He has been raised from a kitten since 2008. He loves to purr, nap on fluffy blankets, and chase his toys around the house. He is not a lap cat (unless you're sitting in his spot) but will lay right next to you and place his little paw on you. He grew up with his brother and sister from the same litter, but has lived with 3 other cats and a dog before. However, he prefers to live alone and doesn't like to share attention, but has never been aggressive towards other animals or humans. Weasley has been a part of my family for nearly a decade, but I am no longer able to look after him. I am trying to find him another loving home because I will begin traveling frequently and will be gone for extended periods of time with no one to watch after him. Please help me find his new forever home!

Hi there! Meet Jazzee! She is a 10 month old Boxer mix puppy with a lot of energy! She is spayed and crate trained. She is house trained when she has a doggie door, even though when it is raining, she doesn't always like to go outside. She loves carrots and celery as a treat. She loves going on long walks/runs and chasing/eating bugs. She is a very social dog and loves to talk! Her favorite toy is a squeaky tennis ball!

My husband and I first rescued Jazzee when she was 5 months old in February 2017. She came from a high kill shelter and we fell in love with her immediately, driving 2 hours away to pick her up. We already had a 3 year old German Shepard mix that we adopted when he was 6 weeks old, but we felt like we needed another member for our family.

When Jazzee first came to our home she was scared and timid from being in a shelter her whole life. It took her 5 days to adjust to being in a home with a dog that wasn't her sibling. After 2 weeks, Jazzee had settled in and was use to our family and routine. She quickly learned how to sit and how to play with our 3 year old Shepard.

But after a couple of months we started to realize Jazzee was getting more and more energy. We were leaving her and our 3 year old loose in the house while we were at work 40 hours a week, which worked out well at first since we installed a doggie door so they could go outside as they pleased. But Jazzee started getting into things during the day. Pulling things off the counters and tables became her hobby. So we realized we needed to crate her during the day, as we did at night, when she is not supervised until she learned to play with her many toys, not our things on the counters.

It has been over a month now and my husband and I have come to realize how much energy this sweet girl really has and how much energy we do not have. My husband and I work 8-6 Monday through Friday with weekends off. With our German Shepard, we have always left him loose during the day with plenty of toys and we crate him at night. He is a very medium to low energy dog who is ok with laying around the house all day or going hiking 10 miles in one day. With Jazzee, it's a different story.

We have had Jazzee in our lives for 5 months now. For 5 months we have tried everything we can to exercise her more to work some of her energy out but we have come to the conclusion, we are just not that active of a family for such a high energy dog.

We believe Jazzee would do well with the following things:
-A Very Active lifestyle - Such as a lot of walks every day, a huge fenced in yard, swimming, running, etc.
-A single dog household - even though she does extremely well with our 3 year old and other dogs she's been introduced to, she LOVES being the center of attention and wants all the loving people can give her.
-Someone who will take her places and not leave her home alone all the time - she loves riding in the car and being with people all the time, so if you want a road trip buddy she is your girl.

We absolutely hate that we are giving her up but we really believe it is unfair to her to not give her the activity she so desperately needs and wants. If this sounds like you and your lifestyle please give us a call. She is such a wonderful dog and has so much personality and potential. She simply needs the right family to do this for her and unfortunately, no matter how much we want to be, we are not that family...

Our sweet Merlin is one of the chillest cats you'll ever meet. He will let you know when his food bowl is empty, other than that he will come lay on your lap, walk outside and nap most of the time. He and his mate Mishi have been together for all his life, and he has never lived with any other pets. We do not know how they would adapt, but they need to be adopted together by a loving family. If our circumstances were not so difficult we would never give them up. We are hoping maybe a good family will find him here. We would love to stay in touch and pay some towards their expenses.

Mishi is a super sweet, beautiful calico with the typical frisky calico attitude. She lives inside primarily but will go out for a few hours at a time. Once she loves you she will give you hugs and kisses forever (unless you are the vet :)) Also likes long naps in her corner. She and her brother from another mother Merlin have been together for over a decade and have never lived with any other animals. We do not know how they would adapt. We love her and if our situation did not force us would never consider giving them up.

Buster is 7 months old and gets along with all dogs, even a dog in his foster home who usually doesn't like other dogs! He loves to swim and hike and play. He was found as a stray which makes sense because he's pretty good at jumping fences! Buster will need a secure fenced-in yard or to be a mostly indoor dog.
Buster is neutered, up to date on all of his shots, and ready to go home with you!

Look into my eyes, aren't I dreamy? I feel like I'm in a dream I am so lucky! I was abandoned in an apartment complex, most likely because my old family couldn't take me with them, and I hung around until a really nice lady started feeding me and then took me in to get neutered, microchipped, and all of my shots. She already has enough cats of her own so she is fostering me until my own dream family arrives to come and get me! While I am a street savvy cat, I am way too friendly to not have my own owner who will let me love on them! I also have been around lots of other cats and think they are all just great.
If you are searching for a handsome hunk of love, look no further! Call my foster mom at 828-785-0555 and she will tell you all about me!

Sweet Rosie is a 5 year old medium sized mixed breed who loves all people, even kids! According to her owner, Rosie knows extensive commands including, sit, down, stay, wait, leave it, and high five! She loves chasing tennis balls, and would probably make a great hiking companion. During walks on leash she generally just ignores other dogs. Rosie is currently living at Happy Tails Country Club until she finds a home of her own. She was unable to stay in her previous home because she and the older female dog were not getting along (scuffles, but no injuries). At Happy Tails, Rosie is around large groups of dogs for 10 hours a day and does just fine. She would probably do well with a male dog companion, or as the only dog in a family. She has lived with a cat, but did enjoy chasing it occasionally.

If you would like to meet Rosie or get more information, give Happy Tails Country Club a call at 828-628-8510 or email us at info@happytailscc.com

Hi! My name is Bingo. When my owners adopted me from the Humane Society a few weeks ago, I was known as Bullet. I am about 3 years old.

I have turned out to be the best dog and a wonderful pet! I love all humans, including children. I am also friendly to other dogs. There is only one problem…I hate cats. The poor cats in my house have been imprisoned in the basement since I arrived.

Can you help? I would love to come to your home and be your lifelong buddy.

Here’s what I like:
• Puppy food – I need to put on more weight and that helps. My current owners would send me with a two-week supply of lots of food.
• Comfy beds or chairs
• Playing with furry toys and rawhide chews
• Lots of love and snuggles

Here’s what I’ll need:
• Some nice indoor and outdoor space. I may be able to climb a fence, but my owners haven’t seen that happen. Just be sure to watch me carefully at first or take me for walks.
• Plenty of love, food, and some basic training, which I’m eager to learn.
• Shots are all taken care of (thank goodness!) but I’ll need some flea & tick meds after next month. (My current owners may help with this also.)
• A home with NO CATS!

Here’s what you’ll love about me:
• I don’t bark much, just a little if you forget about me outside.
• After I’m fed, walked, and played with a little, I will have hours of being calm and relaxed.
• I’m well house trained.
• My ears are silky-soft.
• I’m learning some commands like stay and come.
• I’m very handsome!
• I love to snuggle!

I can’t wait to go home with you. Please call my owners to find out more!

Hi! my name is Rue. I am a 1 year old rescue but I still look like a kitten! I was found at a school back in July of 2016. I was brought to a nice neighborhood and lived outside for a while. A few months ago my owners took me in and had me spayed and vaccinated but I don't always get along with their other cats. I am always purring and love to cuddle up and follow around my humans. I am small for a fully grown cat (which just adds to my cuteness). I love to play and get attention. I am gentle and loving. To come meet me please email my owner (she works a lot so email is better than calling).

Luna is a petite, quiet cat who was found in a crawlspace, pregnant. The family who found her brought her indoors and she has been raising her litter in a home with other cats and young children. The kittens are almost weaned and Luna will be spayed, microchipped and vaccinated before being being adopted. The resident cat is not fond of sharing her space with other cats so Luna will need to find a forever home. If you are interested in Luna please call Melissa at 216-4332.

This dark red tiger neutered boy, probably around a year old, belonged to renters next door to my sister where he was an inside/outside cat. Unfortunately, they moved and left him behind. He upsets her cats and two of them are aggressive toward him and have been in scuffles with him. She has had to repair her cat containment fence several times where he has torn it trying to get in/out, coming in to get food. He doesn't understand what has happened. He learned how to use her pet door to get into her house. It is obvious he just wants to be loved and have a secure home. We feel sorry for him but have no way to keep him. The owner of the rental house paid to have him neutered and given a Rabies vaccine (done on 5/10/17). He also tested negative for FeLuk and Heartworm but tested positive for FIV. He is currently in my sister's house since he obviously could not be turned back outside, but she cannot keep him past next week. She has 8 cats, and needs 3 separations among them when not home because of bullying, and she has limited air conditioning in her home and cannot keep the cat in an un-air-conditioned room. Please help us if at all possible.

Hello!

My name is Marshall and I am a handsome male, ten year old orange tabby. I was a rescue from Marshall, NC, hence the name. My parents have had me since I was a kitten, but since adding a baby human to the mix, I’ve had a hard time adjusting. I would love to find a nice, quiet home where I can get lots of love and attention.

I love to nap upstairs and downstairs. Also out in the sunroom or by any big window. Napping is very important to me and I take it seriously. I also love to eat and if I had it my way, would eat all the time. Sometimes my parents joke that my name should be Garfield. I’m up to date on all of my vaccinations and neutered. I would do best in a home with no other pets or small children – these things bring out my grumpy side. But once you get to know me I am the purrfect lap kitty. There’s nothing more I love to do than curl up in your lap and purr the afternoon away.

Overall, I’m in great health and very laid back. If you’re looking for a snuggle buddy for those lazy summer days or cold mountain nights, I’m your kitty.

Daliah is a beautiful sweetheart, and the softest animal you will ever pet. She is litter trained and though she could venture throughout the house, she stays in the living room. She loves to binky on her rug in the mornings! Daliah loves attention, but one just has to take it very slow with her (calmly sit near her or pet her for a while before picking her up). She will cuddle for hours at a time and gently nip your clothes when she wants to get down. Though she eats plenty of hay and pellets, she loves all kind of veggies and fruit. She doesn't chew on anything except her apple sticks, though we have put up all cords to be safe.

Daliah needs to go to a home without other pets, as she is a diva and hasn't liked our other pets. She also doesn't have patience for the noise and quick, unpredictable movements of small children.

Kale is a shepherd mix who weighs approximately 45 pounds. He will be 5 years old this spring. He is energetic and a great outdoor companion for hiking, jogging, etc. When you bring him inside he wants nothing more than to cuddle up with a nice pillow. He cannot be in a home with cats or other small animals, he has a very strong prey drive (he does fine with chickens though). He currently lives in a home with another dog his size, however he is very dominant and can be food aggressive. For this reason we would like him to find a home where he is the only animal. He is tolerant of small children, but much prefers older ones - he loves to run and jump and play ball. He is neutered, up to date on all of his shots and has no medical conditions. He will come with his crate, dog bed, leash and food container.

This wonderful black cat is Spirit. He has a great loving personality, is full of energy, loves to play with other cats and is in good health. He does not like to be picked up, so a home with small children would not work for him. He does love to be scratched! He will talk for his food and enjoys watching the birds outside the window. The only reason I have to find another home for him is that I am downsizing and will not be able to take him with me. I love him dearly and want him to have a home filled with unconditional love. Please call with any questions or to meet this little Gentleman!

Thank you.

PLEASE Adopt this amazing cat! I don't want to have to surrender her. Lucy is one of the smartest cats I've owned and therefore has a lot of personality. She even goes on hikes with us! I got her when she was a kitten. She had tons of energy and would bound around the house. As she grew, so did her personality. She did quirky things, like take naps in the bathroom sink and hide when she would hear me coming, only to bound out at me when I entered the room. She used to follow me around the house. She was my little companion. Not your typical lap cat, but that is what I loved about her. You would feel really special when she did decide to cozy up. But you can't pet her for too long, or she may turn and snap. All of these things were fine, until I had kids. At one point, when her claw got stuck in my child's earlobe, we decided she needed to be an outdoor cat. But unfortunately, she wants inside so bad. So she claws at the windows and hurls herself against the doors. We tried letting her in just at night, but my husband didn't want her in the bed with us and so she just continued her shenanigans to try to get in the room with us. The result was she would wake us up and sometimes our kids. Adding on to the sleep deprivation already experienced by having kids, is just unacceptable to us at this point in our lives. Before having kids, it was never a problem. I don't remember being woken up by her and if I was, I was able to go back to sleep. Unlike if she wakes up a 2 year old! Then everyone is up. She really is a great cat and I was extremely fond of her. But now, my kids and my sleep are the most important things and Lucy is, sadly, a bit unloved. I'm really hoping someone can take her and give her a better life. She wants to be indoor/outdoor and is not satisfied with just one or the other. She is a pretty good mouser. We've never had any other pets, so she is territorial and doesn't like other animals. But this is probably something she could get used to. Since she has been committed to the outdoors, we have to keep her food out there and it is attracting other neighborhood animals.
