Say hi to Lilly, a Catahoula Leopard-Shepherd–mix dog. She is a medium size, one-year-old, trim, 31-pound female. Her short easy-to-care-for coat is white with tan markings; she has one warm brown eye and one icy blue eye; and freckles on her nose. She loves to play, especially with squeaky toys. Lilly is smart, quiet, gentle, loving, wants to be petted and told what she is: a very good dog. Given the love, attention and encouragement that she needs, Lilly will be a fantastic pet. She will do best in a single-family home setting with a large yard for her to run and play. Lilly is available through Tuesday, April 22, at the shelter.


Meet Pearl, a beautiful chocolate Angora. Pearl is a three-year-old female, domestic long hair. The colors of her coat range from very dark chocolate to a lighter milk chocolate, which highlights her plume-like tail. Pearl’s personality is calm, gentle, loving and inquisitive. She is very much a lap cat and she purrs with delight when stroked or brushed. She will make an excellent companion in an adult home, plus, she gets along well with other cats. Pearl is available through Tuesday, April 22, at the shelter.
