Meet Doc and Grace.

Doc is a 1-and-a-half-year-old English setter who is thin at about 44 pounds as of June, but otherwise healthy. He loves playing with other dogs but responds quickly when they’ve had enough play. He can run fast when off a leash and is not a big fan of the crate, though he will settle down once inside.

Doc is a bit skiddish around new people and in new situations, but he quickly settles down when he realizes everything is OK. He’ll need practice on a leash and on basic commands.

Like setters, he likes company, either canine or human, and isn’t someone who can be left alone for eight hours. He’ll need plenty of exercise. His interaction with cats will depend on the cat—he’s afraid of those that hiss and swat at him.

Grace is an adult, 6-pound cat who was found as a stray. When she came into foster care, she had fur missing from her face, and her coat was a mess. She is doing well now and loves to be groomed and get head-scratches and hugs.

Grace doesn’t know how to play, but is being taught, and she’s learning to open up and trust humans. She loves to knead in her little bed and sit by the window.

She would be a good quiet, loving companion, who does well with other cats and dogs. Her demeanor suggests she would do well with children, too, since she is very gentle when being petted and doesn’t scratch or bite.

This kitty has had initial vaccinations, de-worming, flea preventative, tested negative for FeLV/FIV, and has been micro-chipped and altered or will be to be ready for adoption then.

If you can offer Doc and Grace a forever home, please visit the Furry Friends website at and complete an application today. Foster homes are needed in order to help more animals like Doc and Grace.
