Featured Pet Of The Week

The kittens are hungry and keep eating all the kitten food!
The shelter needs more dry kitten food to feed them. Thanks!

I'm "WALLY".

I'm a sleek and playful light-gray Tabby.
I have an adorable pink nose and unique personality.
I'm a staff favorite because I'm so fun-loving and affectionate.
I may still be small at 4-6 months, but I've got a BIG purr!
I do great with other cats and will also do well with laid-back dogs.
Visit me and you'll fall in love.
I'm $45 off my adoption fee of $25 and the cost of my neuter and rabies vaccination.

"PRICE"--Labrador Retriever/Boxer mix
1-2 years   Male 43 lbs.

I'm a fun-loving, energetic young man.
I very much enjoy running! A jogging partner or someone who will play fetch with me is my dream owner.
I'm still very much a puppy and love attention.
Treats are one of my favorite things. That will make teaching me new commands or tricks easier.
Although I still have some of my puppy energy, I'm actually a pretty quiet guy and don't bark much.
I need to be introduced slowly to dogs that I don't know.
If they run up to me or come up quietly behind me, I get defensive.
If we're introduced calmly, I will be ready to play with a new friend.
I don't consider cats my friends, however. I'll need a home without cats.

1 year   Female 41 lbs.

One-on-one time with my special people makes me wiggle all over.
I enjoy having fun and being active outside. I especially like to go for walks.
I'm only 1-year-old and still a puppy who has been patiently waiting for my furever home that is a good match for me.
I enjoy playing with other other dogs.
I like to guard my food so it doesn't get taken, so I will need to be kept away from children and other pets while I eat.
I will need a home without cats or other small animals.
I do have a hound bay, so make sure the neighbors don't mind.

I'm a sweet girl who is loving and affectionate.
I like other cats and I will tolerate dogs if they leave me alone.

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!

"ALI McCLAW" - Short-Haired White w/Black KITTEN
12-14 wks   Female

I'm a very affectionate girl who loves to snuggle and play.
I'm a well-rounded kitten who would do good in any situation.
I'm always ready to play with other cats.
And I don't seem to mind the dogs who come into the cat room here at the shelter.
I do get a little squirmy if I'm held too long, but I'm only 4 months old and may grow into being a lap cat.
I'm here with my sister, Oprah Whiskers.
We would both love to come home with you, but it's also okay if we go to different homes.

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", 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.
