Handsome in his American shorthair coat, this tabby fellow is dressed in colors of creamy tan with ebony stripes. Pristine white shows on his chin area and near his rosebud nose. One-year-old Chuckles is a medium-size boy with huge, captivating hazel eyes and a personality that is friendly and loving. When given the love, warmth and stability of a good forever home, he will blossom into a devoted friend, pet and companion. For more on this Chuckles, visit Chuckles’ ID#0182.

Come in and meet this remarkable cat; he’s available at the shelter.



This sweet 4-month-old, female puppy is as her name suggests: a love. Friendly, social and gentle, this fun girl likes attention and play. Love is attractive with a shorthair coat of black and brown and a white bib and feet. A beagle/Australian shepherd–mix, Love appears more like the beagle side, though due to her heritage, she could grow larger.

Love deserves a good, loving forever home where she can be a faithful companion with owner(s) willing to give her affection, care and exercise in a fenced area or on leash and basic obedience training.
