Adopt Violet and Oreo

Yavapai Humane Society
Prescott, Arizona
Contact: or 928-227-0806

They didn’t know each other when they arrived at the shelter. Violet was scared and shy; Oreo was rambunctious and easily excitable. But the two became fast friends and right away brought out the best in each other. Violet was suddenly more sure of herself, while Oreo seemed to relax and exhale. And now, the two pups are looking for a home together. Don’t miss the video of besties Violet and Oreo.
