Maxine and Millie

Two little packages of fun, that’s our kittens of the week. They are all wrapped up in stylish, domestic medium-length coats. Maxine’s is all ebony-black and Millie’s is a tweed blend of orange and black. At two months old, these little sisters are loving, playful, friendly and demonstrate a curious nature. Little tikes now, these adorably cute fun-sters will mature into beautiful adults. They will make good playmates and bring years of companionship to any family environment. Maxine and Millie are waiting to go to their, good forever homes, and they are available through Saturday at the shelter.


Meet Dixie, a 6-year-old, spayed, female Jack Russell Terrier-mix. Her pretty face is marked with a mask of brown and white, and a cute black-button nose. Her brown ears are tipped with black, and her short, smooth coat is all pristine white. Typical of this breed, Dixie is energetic and needs a family that is equally active to ensure that she gets regular daily exercise and attention. Dixie will do best in a home, as an only pet.  She’s ready to go and her adoption fee is $ 15. Dixie was surrendered by her owners because they could no longer keep her.

Dixie is available through Saturday at the shelter.
