Featured Pet Of The Week

I'm "GILLY",

I am a social and loving girl when it's just you and me.
I absolutely love to have my neck scratched.
I'll enjoy exploring all the nooks and crannies of your house too.
I'm 1- to 3-years-old and came in a stray.
I haven't divulged my story, but I'll do anything for a good meal.
I'm looking for a quiet home without loud noises.
Loud noises scare me and then I hide.
Thank goodness I'm done with being a mom.
I'm a Tabico, that's a Calico with Tabby stripes.
I made pretty white kittens, but I don't want to do it again.

**I'm SPAYED & up-to-date on my vaccinations. I'm only $45 to adopt!**

"STERGIS" - Pit Bull Terrier *NEUTERED*
3 yrs   Male 65 lbs

I'm a handsome black & white boy and I'm already neutered and up-to-date on my rabies vaccination, so I'm just $45 to adopt. I have also been microchipped, so my new owner can register me in his/her name!

"SPENCER"--Terrier mix
2-3 years   Male 26 lbs.

Spencer is energetic and fun, but at heart he just wants to cuddle up with his new best friend. He loves to sit on laps and give snuggles & kisses!

Spencer would probably be best as an only dog.

"TENDER" - Yellow Labrador Retriever mix
   Female

"JEFFERSON"--Bluetick Coonhound
2-3 years   Male 65 lbs.

If you're familiar with coon hounds, you know they don't like to be cooped up all the time. Jefferson is itching to go on a long run with his new best friend, or better yet, out into a big field where he can help you catch whatever you're hunting.

Jefferson is not going to be a lap dog, and not just because of his size. He's a big boy with lots of energy and he wants to put it to good use.

HELP OUR MEDICAL FUND:
Donate Steel and Aluminum Cans   

Not only can you donate aluminum cans for recycling, you can now DONATE STEEL CANS too!
All we ask is that you rinse out the steel cans really well (we don't want to encourage not-so-adoptable critters to hang out around the shelter) and place them in a separate bag from the aluminum cans.
Drop both types of cans (remember, in separate bags) in the large labeled bin that is on the east side of the shelter - that's to your left when facing the shelter's front door.
Thanks for helping with our four-legged friends' medical needs!

"FOREST"--Black & White (Tuxedo) Short-Hair - SPAYED
2-3 years   Female

I have beautiful green eyes....green like trees in a 'forest'.
I'm a snuggly girl who will rub up against you gently for love.
I have such a quiet & calm personality that I can appear stand-offish.
I enjoy having my shoulders and back petted and brushed.
However, I'm not a lap cat and am not fond of being carried around.
When it's playtime, I especially like stringed toys and balls I can chase around the room.
I came here with my kittens who have been adopted. It's now time for my furever home too.
I like other cats, but would prefer no dogs in my family.

**I'm SPAYED & up-to-date on my vaccinations. I'm only $45 to adopt!**

I'm a very social girl who likes people and other animals.

I like being pampered and spoiled.
I may be an adult, but I'm still young at heart and play like a kitten.
I hope your dogs and other cats like to play.
I have vivid gold eyes that shine brightly against my black fur.

"NIKKO"
NOT available for adoption   

You'll find me literally hanging out in the front lobby or in the shelter director's office (I'm her kitty).
I have a silly personality and you'll find me about anywhere.
Sometimes I'll be taking a nap on the floor and you'll have to step around me.
Sometimes I'll be visiting with the other cats & kittens....usually playing with them through the top of their cages.
And sometimes I'll be "helping" at the desk.

"BU"
   

IN MEMORY

"BU", our shelter cat, went across the rainbow bridge Monday May 22 from cancer.
Bu greeted visitors with love and playfulness, helped at the front desk with paperwork,
let the incoming pets know it was going to be okay, and tested the dogs for cat-friendliness.
But most of all Bu was friend, family & coworker to shelter employees and volunteers.
Bu is short for Shinobu which means to endure.
He will be missed and will endure in our hearts!
Bu was 17 years old.
