Barking with The Beat – Sanford

Meet Sanford! A 2 year old Shepherd/Retriever/Lab mix. Approx. 63 lbs. He’s an old soul in a young dog’s body! If you spend most of your time relaxing on the couch, he would be the perfect companion! He does have bowing in his back legs, so he’d be best in a home with minimal to no stairs. Amanda from 417 Pet Sitting explains more about his condition in the video, as well as below the video. Sanders has a low energy level, so he would be best with older children or an older couple. Would probably do best as an only child, too.

TK’s Kitty Corner

Welcome to TK’s Kitty Corner where each week we feature a cat (or cats) up for adoption from C.A.R.E.
This week we have Chauncer and Marvin. Both are 4 month old males. Chauncer is Black & White and Marvin is Orange & White. They are both very playful, loving, curious, purr quite a bit, and will do great with other cats, dogs, and kids!
If you are interested in adopting them you can contact C.A.R.E. at 417-875-6565, stop in at 1328 W. Sunshine in Springfield, or visit them online at
You will need to fill out a quick application and pay a $100 adoption fee (this covers spay/neuter, vaccinations, deworming, feline leukemia/FIV testing, and anything else needed to get them healthy after rescue.)
Every Friday at C.A.R.E. is “Freeline Friday” where you can adopt a spayed/neutered kitty and they will waive the adoption fee.
C.A.R.E. is a NO-KILL SHELTER!!! Read full article >>

Barking with The Beat – Sophie

Miss Sophie is all puppy and will make a wonderful adult with a little training.  She does well on a leash, and with a harness will do even better.  She is partially potty trained, so transitioning to a forever home shouldn’t be an issue.  She gives kisses and loves to love, you can tell that she is a people pleaser!  She knows basic commands sit, stay, down, and shake.  The ladies at the Humane Society of Southwest MO said she did great with all other dogs when playing outside, but they were uncertain about cats.  I would think that with her high energy that she would probably see cats as toys.  Her general disposition is amazingly gentle and loving once you get her calmed down, so she would do great with kids and/or an active home. – Amanda Brown|417 Pet Sitting Read full article >>
