Run, don’t walk to meet our boy, Zoose. This attractive, 8-month-old male, silver-swirl tabby has a remarkable shorthair coat. Gray and buff softly blended; ebony and white provide patterns; a dusting of frost is visible. Zoose looks you smack in the eyes, and you know he thinks you’re special. This love bug is a fun cat, engaging you with his paw to play. Bright, smart, packed with personality, Zoose will make a fantastic pet in his new forever home. Pay him a visit. He’s available through Saturday at the shelter.


Long and lanky, that’s our Paul; a 1-year-old handsome, black, tan and white tricolor hound–mix. He’s a sweet, friendly, inquisitive boy with that hound dog nose for new scents! This worthy dog is too thin and he will need to be fed good dog food, along with a generous portion of tender, loving care, from people who will love him and provide him with his new forever home. Hounds — a wonderful breed — need exercise on a leash or in a fenced area. Paul is available through Saturday at the shelter.
