Sam I am — and good looks and fantastic personalities run in my family. I’m a male, with a shorthair fur coat of cream, apricot and stripes the color of dark marmalade. My eyes are deep amber and I am rather proud of my rosebud nose. In addition to being smart, agreeable and friendly, I have a muscular build and at two years old, my disposition is calm. But you don’t have to take my word, come in and see for yourself what a great guy I am. Sam’s available through Saturday at the shelter.


Our Holly is a 6-month-old, Terrier-mix with a pretty coat of brindle and white. She is happy, playful, affectionate and excitable. But that is to be expected, after all, she surely never had as much attention as she did during her photo session. But she kept her sense of humor and thought it was fun to have no less than three women trying to hold her and get her to smile. Holly would love to meet you. Pay her a visit — she is available through Saturday at the shelter.
