Setting your New Year resolutions? Looking to get outdoors more? Run a marathon? Pick up a new active hobby? Well KAR has the perfect solution to your resolution. It's Dex—the ultimate buddy!
Dex was at the local shelter for far too long and he was nearing the end of his stay there. Luckily, a KAR foster saw him and recognized his potential. He has been in his foster home for a few months now and has adjusted well, but we just know he is waiting patiently for his forever home.

Dex is the ultimate in fun loving adventures! He will be up for anything! He will make the perfect bike, skateboard, running, walking, hiking buddy. 

His foster home has been working with him on walking on a leash politely and he is a star pupil. Dex even attends a weekly obedience class and the instructors have noted how smart he is. He is a quick learner and would excel at lots of fun hobbies, such as agility or Frisbee. Dex especially loves playtime at the end of class when he gets to play with the other dogs!

If you are ready to open up your home to a deserving buddy, please consider meeting Dex. He is one in a million!

Kallista and Kassiopeia

Sisters Kallista and Kassiopeia are hoping to find their forever home together in time for the holidays. 

Kalli and Kassi came into the rescue at just a few weeks old with their three siblings and mom Kalliope.

We love playing under the blankets :)

We're great helpers and promise we won't steal ALL of your pens.

 Dreaming of my very own Happy Tail.

You can read more about these two cuties by following the name links to their bios on the KAR website: Kallista and Kassiopeia.
