Mandy, sweet as sugar candy!  That describes our Mandy, a 3-month-old female, Retriever-mix puppy. She has a beautiful black coat with brown and black brindle markings on her legs. White shows on her little chin, in a small streak on her throat-chest area, and on the tips on her feet. Mandy is a gentle, loving, smart and friendly pup, and she loves to give kisses. She will be great with a young family that can raise her in a good home and train her to be an amazing dog. Mandy is available through Saturday at the shelter.


We’ve come up with some adjectives to perfectly describe our boy Oscar. They are: handsome, funny, sweet, cuddly, purr-fectly calm and elegant. Oscar is a 10-month-old orange Tabby with a medium length coat and a fluffy white ascot. He truly is elegant and very fastidious. He is a gentle soul and loves to be held. We can’t say enough about this wonderful feline who is looking for his forever home. Oscar is available through Saturday at the Shelter,
