News & Updates

**YorkiPoo update**
We’re happy to announce that the seven YorkiPoo puppies recently surrendered will shortly be available for adoption.
Because of the incredible interest in these puppies, we will be taking applications for a limited time only. Applications will be taken tomorrow (Tuesday August 4) between 12-4pm at the Noble Family Adoption Center, in-person only.  Interested parties will meet with an adoption counselor (puppies will NOT be present) to discuss your application. After all applications are reviewed, we’ll contact potential adopters who are the best match for the needs of each puppy.
