Helping Pets Find Forever Homes

Meet Dirk- Our Macaroni Dog of the Week

Dirk is a 2 year old, male who arrived at the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast in September. He may do well with a doggy friend, but a meet and greet would be required to make sure the two get along. Dirk requests a cat-free home, though! This sweet boy is very playful and knows his basic commands. He absolutely loves to splash around in water and to play with toys.

Meet Dusty - Our Macaroni Kitty of the Week

Dusty is an 8 year old, male who was surrendered due to his owner moving. Dusty does not have an experience with other cats or dogs, but might do well given a very slow introduction. He is described as an affectionate lap cat once he gets to know you. Dusty is very nervous here at the shelter, but we know that he will blossom in a loving home.
