Hi, my name is Oren and I’m puttin’ on my top hat, tyin’ up my white tie, brushin’ off my tail, ‘cause, as you can see, I’m a handsome “Tuxedo” cat. I’m ready to party with Ginger or Rita or anyone who will give me a good, forever home. I’m a neat guy with a silky, medium length, black and white coat. I love to be petted and fussed over, and I adore having someone talk lovey–dovey to me. But if you want a buddy to watch the game with, I am your man … at least I will be, right now I’m a six-month-old, juvenile cat.


I’m available through Saturday at the shelter.





When the camera met Sally, it was love at first sight. This beautiful, one-year-old, female, American Foxhound–mix could very well be a movie star. Long limbs, trim figure, pretty face with an intelligent expression, engaging pale baby blue eyes, a graceful noble carriage, sparkling white and caramel brown, short hair coat — definite star quality. Sally’s a little on the shy side until you sweet-talk her a tiny bit and then you see her personality surface. It’s friendly, playful, loving, alert, sweet, gentle and mild tempered. Sally is very much in need of a good forever home and she is available through Saturday at the shelter.
