 So handsome to see, so cuddly to hold, so loyal a friend — that’s our Prince.

He’s an 18-month-old male, domestic shorthair with a calm and dignified nature.  We just love this sweet boy with the huge, heart-melting emerald eyes. He wants to be loved and cared for and, in exchange, he promises to bring years of joyful companionship to his forever family. Prince is available through Saturday at the shelter.



 Affectionate, loving, friendly Rose, is our 5-month-old fawn and white, Boxer-mix puppy. She’s a smart, funloving cuddler who loves attention and tummy rubs. One of this breed’s most notable characteristics is its desire for human affection, especially from children. They are patient and spirited with children, but also protective, making them a popular choice for families. The Boxer requires little grooming, but needs daily exercise. Rose is available through Saturday at the shelter.
