Say hi to Cody, our nine month old, male, Labrador Retriever – mix.  His black, easy to care for, short coat is highlighted with a river of white which extends from his chinney – chin – chin to his tummy. His toes are white tipped also.  Cody is a calm, friendly, smart, sweet, attentive pup who wants to learn and please.  He loves attention, sweet talk and petting.  Cody would be a great dog for a young family with children or the perfect companion and faithful friend for the senior couple or person. Cody is available through Saturday at the shelter.


April, a Domestic short hair with a coat of orange and cream, is our Orange Creamsicle, Cat of the Week. She’s sweet and good, just like the familiar treat. This ten month old, female has a disposition of “Mellow Yellow.” When April, a stately junior kitten with a very calm and loving nature, casts her golden eyes on you… you’ll turn into a quivering mass of Jello. April does not care for dogs, however, but will do fine with everyone else! April is ready to share your good forever home and she is available through Saturday at the shelter.
