The RepairLabs Team and their “Best Friends”!

Brittany and Willy

Willy is polydactyl and has opposable thumbs. He has a lion haircut in order to intimidate other cats! Observe his frightening boxing gloves.

Sean and Axis

This is my best friend Axis a German Shepard. He is German born and Slovakian trained. I think he is actually human and just playing a trick on me. He goes everywhere I go and never takes his eyes off of me. My favorite thing about him is how sweet he is. He loves to cuddle and give love.

Ashleigh and Maya

Maya, my chocolate brown Pomeranian-Mix sweetheart, has been such a blessing in my life! She found me while I was visiting my local shelter about 4 years ago. Maya was labeled a ‘runaway’ puppy, and to my sadness, I saw that 2 other families were already on the waiting list to take her home. With my name as the third person down on her list, I figured my chances of adopting her were slim to one; however, three days later I got a call to come pick her up! Something had fallen through with the other families on the list, so fate decided to bring Maya and I together! She is the most beautiful, furry little friend I could ask for! We love to snuggle together next to the fire during the cold winter months, and we love to race around the backyard in the summer and bark at all the neighbors.

Ana and Sara

Ana got Sara from the Humane Society in Pittsburgh KS that she volunteered at. Sarah chose Ana, when she came in sick and skinny and Ana would walk her every day because she was quarantined. Ana even hand fed her. Sarah now can jump very high and loves to go to the dog park. Sarah is overjoyed to see Ana every time she goes into the back yard.

Taylor and Dakota

Dakota’s hobbies include playing video games and hopping like a kangaroo. He is a sensitive soul whose feelings are easily hurt.

Anna and Odelay

Odelay loves it when people yodel at her. Her job is to guard the house and her Mommy (Anna) during walks. She is a capitalist doggie who only does tricks for cookies. She is an excellent listener. She and Anna are best friends.
