Say hi to Lelia, a 5-year-old, Terrier, American Pit Bull-mix. Lelia is a sweet, loving dog that just wants to be close to someone. She was play-tested with a male dog and they played well together. Showing no signs of aggression, she wagged her tail and just wanted to play the whole time. Lelia will be great with any kind of family and she is available through Saturday at the shelter.


The purr-fect cat for you, that’s Flash. He’s a 9-month-old juvenile, American medium hair, buff (very pale orange and white), Tabby. His big, beautiful, golden eyes and sweet disposition will melt your heart. Flash has a lot of personality and he’s intelligent, alert, very clean and he likes people. Flash will be perfect in any family setting and he is available through Saturday at the shelter.
