Welcome to Safe Place For Pets

Meet Goose: Goose is a healthy, beautiful 14 lb. spayed female DSH sweetheart with a gorgeous gray and tan coat. In her youth, Goose wrangled lizards and mice. But now in her retirement, she prefers a much more laid back and relaxed lifestyle. Goose can be quite affectionate, on her terms of course. She has a great purr, and a squeak of a meow. She has lived with a dog. With a clean bill of health from the vet, Goose has plenty of life left in her.
