This handsome Shepherd-mix is approximately 4 years old, and he’s a friendly, smart and likeable, good fellow who loves attention, playing and dog treats. Baxter has significant damage to his ears from fly bites, and even though the wounds are healed, they’re evidence that he needs and deserves owner(s) who will provide him with love, care, attention, basic obedience training and exercise in a fenced area or on a leash, and a good forever home.

To see more of him, visit Shelter Dogs, and click on photos (Baxter’s ID#1937). Come spend some time with this really nice dog. He will be available through the following Saturday at the shelter.



Elegantly sleek in her black-satin, medium-length coat, with mesmerizingly huge peridot eyes and a personality to match, that’s our Gabrielle. At 1 year old, this enchantress is a loving, friendly young lady who adores attention, being petted and lovey-dovey talk. Gabrielle will make a fantastic pet, playmate and companion in a variety of good, forever home settings.

For video and more photos, visit Shelter Cats, and click on photos with a link to her video (Gabrielle’s ID#2015).

Gabrielle will love to meet you — she will be available through next Saturday.
