Beauty, elegance and grace, that’s our Oreo. At 12 years old, this attractive, golden eyed Tuxedo cat, will do best in a quiet household, with a single adult or couple. Oreo needs tender loving care, in a good home that will show her attention and let her know she is loved and special. In return, Oreo will give the companionship and unconditional love that only a pet can give. She is available through Saturday at the shelter.



Full of love and affection — that’s our Dakota. She’s a Golden Retriever–mix, and at two months old, she is showing signs that her breed is known for, namely, intelligence, friendliness and devotion. Dakota is a good looking girl with a shorthair, fawn colored, coat. She will need daily exercise either on a leash or in a fenced area. She will make a wonderful pet in a good forever home. Dakota is available through Saturday at the shelter.
