  • Summertime Reminder


    Please remember that during these hot summer days, it's not a good idea to take your dog with you, if you know he is going to have to wait in the car.  Even if you leave your windows cracked, it does not take long for your car to reach dangerous temperatures, which can seriously injure your best friend.

    Leave your pal at home, he will most certainly enjoy his nice cool home rather than your HOT car.

Rocket and Newton


I adopted my adorable rat terrier/beagle mix Rocket about 5 years ago and ever since then he has been a joy. He is doing wonderfully. He has been entered in three cutest pet contest and placed second each time! He even has his own Facebook page.

 About three years ago we added another family member. Newton is a guinea pig who we also adopted from the SPCA of Anne Arundel County. Newton is such a sweet heart! I love both of my pets. They are are so sweet and loving. They truly love their home
