Meet our VNB Pets of the Month …


Buster is a dog who loves his people. He’s almost 5 years old, but he has plenty of pep in his step. He also has beautiful brown eyes and lovely long white and copper/brown fur.

Buster is looking for someone who can make him feel safe and live his best life. He enjoys adventures and loves to hang his head out of the car window. Buster attended our bow-WOW-walk this year at Lee Park and had a great time making new friends, both human and canine! Sweet Buster can be protective of his people and does need to go to a home without young children. He is housetrained and knows some basic obedience too!

Pumpkin is a cat who loves her routine. She enjoys her time out and about on the cat rows but does prefer not to be too close to other cats. The staff and volunteers at the shelter have learned a lot about Pumpkin in the year she has lived at the shelter, and are so happy she started to seek out the laps of those she trusts! Pumpkin likes to be in charge, so she does prefer not to picked up, but enjoys being brushed and petted in addition to lap sitting.
