Hi! My name is Nico, I am around 2 years old, about 43lbs, already neutered, microchipped & up to date on vaccinations and all set to move right into your home and heart!

My friends here call me the cutest little chicken nugget and baby hippo. I do love chicken nuggets, and, like the hippo, I am very shy, loving and loyal to my people and fellow hippos. I would love an adult-only, kitty-free, calm, quiet home with another dog to help me build confidence. I take a little time to warm up to new people, but my friends say that once I warm up, I will give you my heart, endless laughs, kisses & cuddles. I love to play with my adult human friends, I love toys, chasing tennis balls and spending time cuddling in the warm sun.

My friends here at PAC say I am a big goofball and I make them smile. I do love making them smile. I love that they are so patient with me and let me choose when I am ready to cuddle up or try new things. If you give me a chance, I would love to cuddle up with you too.

If you want to meet me, please complete an adoption profile and email it to my friend, Stevie, at and then we'll be in touch. I can't wait to meet you! XO – Nico

P.S. Someone is so excited for me to find my fur-ever home, that they have sponsored my adoption fee! That means I can join your family today for FREE! Woohoo!!

    Even If You Can't Adopt, You Can Still Help!

    Foster Nico

    Foster parents are always needed for kittens, dogs and puppies. Some pets need as little as 2 weeks of care while others may need a few months.

    No matter how little or as much time as you can dedicate, there’s an animal that would benefit from your help.

    Sponsor Nico

    Your generous sponsorship will help cover the cost of the adoption package. It will also waive the chosen animal’s adoption fee!

    Pet sponsors receive updates about their sponsored pet and will be notified when that animal has found his or her forever home.

    As of Jan. 6, our Center is temporarily closed. We hope to re-open within 3 weeks.
