Meet Riley! She came to the shelter at the end of November and was in foster for a little while. She’s been in multiple playgroups with other dogs and was energetic and social. Here’s what a volunteer shared about her: “You won’t have to go to heaven to find an angel!  Meet one-year-old Riley! I’ve never seen so much personality in a tail until now!  She loves human interaction and is like Velcro. But give her a ball, and she will play nonstop fetch with you. She’s a keeper!”  Email

Nestle & Ghirardelli – 1 Year 2 Months- Males- Guinea Pigs!

Occasionally small animals come into MACC and that’s just what happened on October 20th, 2021. Not one but two guinea pigs were found roaming around outside. Both male guinea pigs are in the lobby. Staff handle them every day, as well as feed them a variety of fruits and vegetables they enjoy munching on. With a calm environment, they come out of their dens and often can be heard playing in their cages, especially if they were given cardboard rolls stuffed with treats. These guys are still waiting on their forever homes and would love to be visited with.  Email
