Maggie Mae – a sweet fun girl who, just like her brother Clinton, had a rough start in life – they were abandoned at the shelter last year and have both been waiting for someone who sees what everyone else has missed – just what great dogs they are!!!


Maggie Mae is a good looking girl who is lots of fun to be around and she's looking for an active family to call her own. She knows they are out there - she just needs to get their attention!!!


  • Very friendly with both kids and adults
  • Will sit, especially for a treat
  • Walks well on a leash
  • Loves to play chase and wrestle with her doggie friends
  • Great smile
  • Crate trained
  • A sweet girl with a great personality
  • Loved by all the volunteers

Maggie Mae is not a big girl - she weighs about 50 pounds - and would love to have a fenced yard where she can run. She is a real beauty with her wonderful smile, long legs and great coloring.


Please come and see our wonderful Maggie Mae at Dog & Kitty City.

Meet Clinton – a friendly and energetic boy, Clinton had a rough start in life - abandoned at the shelter with his sister Maggie Mae last year, he is waiting for that person who will give him a second chance in life.


Clinton is a very good looking guy with striking eyes; he is ready to give lots of love to his new ‘forever’ person and family. Like his friend Jessie who recently went to a wonderful home after a long stay at the shelter, Clinton is certain that one day someone will come to the shelter who won't pass him by but will stop and spend some time with him and say – you know... this is just the dog I've been looking for!!!


  • Very friendly
  • Lots of energy, would be a perfect buddy for a runner or walker or active children
  • Walks well on a leash
  • Plays well with other dogs – big or small. He will get along great with dogs that are already in a home or he can be an only dog.
  • Crate trained
  • Good with kids
  • Working on his good doggie manners

Clinton is not a big dog – he weighs around 50 pounds. He is tall and lean!!!


Please come and see handsome Clinton at Dog & Kitty City.

Updates on Hildie and Mockingbird Mom
Monday, 30 July 2012
Update on Hildie


Hildie arrived a really sad, sorrowful little bundle of no fur. She was so miserable that she just sank into a soft bed and looked pathetic.


We found she was microchipped, but backtracked the number to Houston where we lost the trail, so we are unsure whether some sad owner has lost this little darling or someone just left her behind when they moved.


Vet determines she is probably 8 years old. New exams and tests show no serious underlying problems, but really severe skin abrasions from allergies and exposure.


She is being housed indoors and seems happy with her little condo. Each day a little more sparkle shows in her eyes. If you visit her at the shelter, don't be surprised if she has a purple hue! This is part of her treatment.


We have a foster mom standing by, but staff wanted to treat and observe her for at least a week to be sure she is on the mend.


We thank everyone for their concern about this sweet little girl. We are getting her ready for her debut and that search for her forever home.



Update on Mockingbird Mom


The DuckTeam6 rescue volunteers have been out in force to help this family in distress. First success was Sam. Next was three more puppies, currently in foster care. For the big happy ending, fingers crossed for trapping mom. They have noted her leg is injured but cannot get close enough to evaluate the injury.


A nearby resident says she has been there for more than a year, and walks him to the bus at 4:30 every morning and then goes back to her spot. The sweet girl needs a second chance. Anyone out there with a yard and a spot for this very loyal girl?
