Evvie Althena

Sweet as sugar describes Evvie. She is a 2-year-old black and white Tuxedo that adores being held and cuddled. Pay her a visit at the shelter, and Evvie will not only greet you with a friendly meow, but she will extend her paw to touch you. This engaging cat has a calmness about her and she will be a fantastic companion cat to a single family with grown children or a retired couple. Evvie Althena is available through Saturday at the shelter.

James and Joe

James and Joe are 2-month-old, Labrador Retriever-mix puppies from a litter of seven. James is the only chocolate. Joe and the rest of the siblings are black, and their genders are an assortment of male/female. This breed is gentle, intelligent, with stable temperaments, loves children and are family-friendly. All the puppies will fit in well with active families who will play and interact with the pups to give them the attention and exercise that’s needed. These puppies are available through Saturday at the shelter.
