Dog: I'm Carmen! I am a 4 year old American Pit Bull female. I'm house-broken and crate-trained. I have lots of energy and would make an awesome jogging/biking partner! I also enjoy chew bones and love playing fetch.
Cat: I'm Mystery. I'm a 7 month old Domestic Longhair female cat. I'm friendly, loving, and desperately wanting a family of my very own. Not much is known about my past, and I hope that won't deter you from opening your heart.
