Picture of Damon


Damon  is a kind and thoughtful young man who enjoys eating out, watching movies and going to the park.

He has recently discovered rock-collecting and can identify many different kinds of rocks. Damon likes school; he is very energetic and loves sports, especially basketball, rollerblading and riding his bike. Damon is accustomed to living with cats and would likely adjust to being around dogs, though he is a bit more apprehensive of dogs.

He is waiting for a forever home and genuinely desires the safety and comfort of a loving, committed family.

Picture of Summer


Summer is in the 8th grade and already taking high school classes. She enjoys hiking and biking outdoors, and loves music and reading.

Summer is self-taught on piano and guitar - she can play a song by ear with just a few attempts. She would like a family that has a love for music and enjoys being active in the community.
