Pet of the Week


Spend a few minutes with Hercules and you'll see how perfect this name is for him! At close to 100 pounds of pure love and friskiness, he is sure to capture your heart.

Apparently no one has told him that at 8 years old, it's time to slow down because he is always ready to go for a walk or chase a ball! Hercules is waiting to meet his new family (older teens only due to his size and strength) so he can spend the summer out and about making new friends!

Trap - Neuter - Return

Rescue Village endorses a feral cat population management method called Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). TNR works because it addresses cat overpopulation where it starts - uncontrolled reproduction.

To participate or for more information, call 440.338.4819 ext. 10 or send us an email.
