Handsome as a Hollywood movie star, that’s our 2-year-old tabby. He wears a medium-length coat with black and warm-gray stripes in an elegant manner; a wonderful plume of a tail is his signature feature. Fairbanks is a lover, and he wants nothing but your attention, affection and love. He will make a wonderful pet and companion in a variety of good forever, loving home settings.

To see more of Fairbanks, visit Shelter Cats. Fairbanks’ ID#0334. This is your cue to come meet this gorgeous boy. He is available through the following Saturday at the shelter.




This adorable 2-month-old male is friendly, gentle, calm and a little shy because he has only been in the shelter a few days. A retriever/shepherd-mix, Aaron is just as cute and fluffy as can be. He deserves a good, loving forever home where he can be a faithful pet and companion with owner(s) willing to give him attention, affection, care, exercise in a fenced area or on a leash and basic obedience training.

For more photos, visit Aaron’s ID#0342.

Aaron won’t be available for adoption until Monday. Preliminary paperwork maybe filled out prior to that date by multiple interested parties. Adoptions are handled on a first-come, first-served basis. We regret any inconvenience.

Come spend a little time with Aaron. He’s available for one week after the availability date at the shelter.
