Sweet, friendly, playful and a people lover — that’s our Thunder. At 8 months old, this medium-size, male shepherd–mix is demonstrating a pleasant, outgoing personality. A brown shorthair coat with a white chest patch, white paws and black facial markings create a handsome fellow. Thunder will make a wonderful addition in a variety of home settings, providing his owner(s) show him love, attention and exercise in a fenced area or on a leash. Thunder is available through Saturday at the shelter.


If words like gentle, calm and loving sound good to you, then our Ginger is the cat for you. This gorgeous, 8-month-old tabby with a cream and pale orange, apricot and amber shorthair coat, delicate soft green eyes and a rosebud nose is elegant. She is sociable, friendly and charming. Ginger will make a wonderful pet and companion in a variety of good, forever-home settings. Pay her a visit and you will see what a fantastic girl she is. Ginger is available through Saturday at the shelter.
