Smart, inquisitive and friendly, that’s Mick. At one year old, this Chihuahua–mix may be small but he’s packed with plenty of personality. Looking dapper in a shorthair white, black and brown coat, and warm brown eyes, nose and ears — there is very little that gets by Mick. This smart fellow will make a great pet in a good forever home. Come spend a little time with him and see what a great dog Mick is.

He is available through Saturday at the shelter.

Jewel and Colt

Delightful, friendly, calm and fun are Jewel and Colt. Both cats are five months old, with beautiful, medium-length coats. Jewel, ever feminine and thoughtful, wears a magnificent pewter gray and pale orange coat of the dilute tortoiseshell-mix. Colt is an inquisitive tabby, and he looks splendid in his tangerine and pristine white coat. These fine felines will make fantastic pets and companions in a variety of good, forever home situations. Pay them a visit, they are available through Saturday at the shelter.
