At 5 months old, Chloe, our American shorthair, female, mackerel tabby kitten is a love bug! With a stunning display of stripes in buff, brown and black, white star sparkling brightly on her chest and huge green eyes, she is a feast for the eyes — a gorgeous cat. This friendly, loving, active and adoring girl will make a fantastic pet, playmate and companion in a variety of good forever home scenarios. Come spend a little time with her and see for yourself what a wonderful girl she is — she’ll meet you with a touch of her paw and a friendly meow.

For Chloe’s video and photos, visit Shelter Cats/ID#1534. Chloe is available through next Saturday at the shelter.


Cute, friendly, smart, playful and an all-around great little girl, that’s our Blessing.  At 3 months old, this American pit bull-Terrier mix, is true to the saying, “Happiness is a warm puppy.” She has a shorthair coat of fawn, with white accents; her nose is speckled pink. Blessing will need owner(s) willing to give her love, attention and provide her with basic obedience training to enable her to start life off on the right paw. Exercise in a fenced area or on a leash is also a necessity. Given the love, care and attention she deserves, she will make a wonderful pet, playmate and be a true Blessing, in a good forever home.

For more about Blessing, visit Shelter Dogs/ID#1611.  Come in and meet her; she’s available through next Saturday at the shelter.
