She’s got personality, walks with personality — talks, smiles, charms, loves with personality plus she’s got a great big heart. That’s our Mixie. This 4-month-old, beautiful, shorthair, black and orange, tortoiseshell is packed full of all this and fun too. Loving people, attention and play, Mixie will make a wonderful addition in a variety of good, forever home settings. Come meet this fabulous juvenile kitten; you’ll fall in love. Mixie is available through Saturday at the shelter.


Sweet as a spring breeze, that’s our Tulip. At 1 month old, she is discovering what life is all about and to her it is all wonderful fun. Tulip is a retriever–mix and she is brown with black markings and just as cute as she can be. At her tender age, Tulip will need special attention and will need to be fed about every three to four hours. Consulting a veterinarian would ensure she is getting proper food for her age as well as to what her needs are. When she gets older her owner(s) must be willing to spend time with her, give her exercise in a fenced area or on a leash and basic obedience training so she will know what is expected of her. Tulip is available through Saturday at the shelter.
