Friendly, sweet, gentle, calm and loving that’s our Holly. At 2 years old, this medium-size female has a wonderful disposition and wants to please. Pretty in her caramel color, shorthair coat and warm dark brown eyes, Holly has the characteristics of a boxer–mix. This girl deserves owner(s) who are willing to give her love, attention and exercise in a fenced area or on a leash, basic obedience training and a loving forever home where she will be a faithful companion and pet. See more of Holly in photos and video by visiting Shelter Dogs/ID#1438. Stop in and spend a little time with her. She’s available through next Saturday at the shelter.


Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels will recognize the name and agree it is appropriate for our Gandalf the white cat. This big, handsome, 2-year-old male has a gorgeous coat and huge peridot eyes that he will use to weave a spell and you will fall under his charms. Gandalf is loveable, gentle, calm, loves attention, being brushed and talked to and lounging. He will make a wonderful addition in a variety of good forever, loving home settings. See more of Gandalf in photos and video by visiting Shelter Cats/ID#1434. Stop in and spend a little time with him. He’s available through next Saturday at the shelter.
