Nessie (pictured above) is a 7-year-old great Pyrenees mix who is a VBSPCA staff favorite. She’s very sweet and quite the dancer. Nessie tends to guard her people, which is a common breed trait. She’d do best with kids 14 and older. Nessie is heartworm positive, but her medical bills are covered thanks to generous donors.
Larry is a 4-year-old tabby who has had a rough start to life. He recently had surgery for a painful eye condition as well as a dental procedure, and now he’s feeling much better! Larry is FIV+ and has a cleft palate, but the VBSPCA team can talk you through everything you need to know to keep him happy and healthy.
Baxter is a 2-year-old Labrador retriever/basset hound mix. He is very shy when you first meet him but will gladly snuggle up with you once he gets to know you. Baxter would do best with children 16 and older. The VBSPCA will also set up meet-and-greets with any resident dogs to make sure everyone gets along.
Iris is a 1-year-old tabby with lots of energy. She loves attention and has no problem asking for it. Iris did not get along with the animals in her previous home, so she will need to be an only pet. She would also do best with older, cat-savvy children because her play style can be a little rough.
Trudy is a 6-year-old American rabbit who is very laid back. She is very good about keeping her area clean and is great about using her litter box. When Trudy was spayed, the VBSPCA veterinary team discovered she had uterine cancer. Thankfully, she is now cancer free!
