Keeps his motor running…that’s our Harley!  He’s a 2-year-old domestic shorthair, chocolate-swirl tabby. This big, handsome hunk has gorgeous markings of dark chocolate and caramel with a snow white vest and socks. Possessing a sweet, gentle disposition, Harley’s a fun-loving boy who likes to explore, loves people and greets them with a friendly “Meow.” Harley will make an amazing pet and companion in a good forever home. Harley is available through Saturday at the shelter.


At 2 years old, Dreamer is a sweet female hound-mix. She’s intelligent and may have had some obedience training. With a short, easy-to-maintain fawn and white coat, rosebud nose, shell-pink whisker pads and pop-up ears, she’s cute as can be. She’s friendly, gentle, attentive, and she seems to enjoy attention. Dreamer needs tender loving care and in return, she will be a faithful pet in a good, forever home. Dreamer is available through Saturday at the shelter.
