Megan McFarland, an animal activist who runs the Mums and Mutts program, has made connections with local animal shelters to help our furry friends find their forever homes.

Meet Hokie! He’s a two-year-old Boxer/Hound mix with a lot of energy. He loves to run around and play so a home with a fenced yard would be best for him. Hokie is good with other dogs and would do best in a house with children over 10 years old.


This is Celeste, a two-year-old Beagle/ Hound mix. She’s very calm and loves attention. Celeste can be adopted into a home with other dogs and does well with children of all ages.

Barkley is a curious, 1-year-old English Setter/ Lab mix. He really enjoys being outside and would make a great hiking partner. A home with children over six years old is the place for Barkley.

Look at those ears! Flint is a one-year-old Lab mix. He already knows some basic commands and loves playing with toys. Flint can get along with most dogs, but is a little picky. Aren’t we all? He’d do well in a house with children 6 years old or older.

Say hello to Sabre, a two-year-old Boxer mix. She’s high energy so a fenced in yard would be best for her. She likes to run a lot! Because Sabre is so excitable a home with children over 10 is ideal.
