Gorgeous! In her luxurious shorthair coat of buff, orange, ebony and accents of white, this 1-year-old, large tabby is gorgeous! Huge pale green eyes and a rosebud nose complete this pretty picture. But she’s not merely a pretty girl. Friendly, personable, calm, and smart — she will make a wonderful pet and companion in a variety of good forever home settings. Come introduce yourself to Ginger; she’d love to meet you. She is available through Saturday at the shelter.

Laura and Scotty

No doubt about it, happiness is a warm puppy — that makes a good pillow. At least that’s what Laura thinks as she rests her head on Scotty. Both are 2-month-old, retriever-mix puppies. Laura is dressed in a shorthair, brown and tan brindle coat. Scotty, a male, is handsome in his shorthair, butterscotch-tan coat. These puppies are sweet, attentive, playful and love being petted. Given the love and attention they deserve, Laura and Scotty will be wonderful pets in a variety of good forever home settings. Come visit them; they are available through Saturday at the shelter.
