Timothy and Silas

At approximately 5 months old, our American shorthair, male kittens are all decked out in sleek, jet black coats, white stars on their chests and huge golden eyes. Delightful, playful and fun, it’s a treat to watch them make a game of tossing and hiding their toy mouse. Timothy and Silas (only one pictured here) are friendly, loving kittens, and they will make fantastic pets, playmates and companions as they blossom and grow in a variety of good forever home scenarios. Come share a little playtime with them and see for yourself what remarkable sweethearts they are. Both kittens are available through next Saturday. For more information, visit Shelter Cats. Timothy’s ID is No. 1333 and Silas’ ID is No. 1334.


At 6 years old, this blue and white, medium-size, bully-mix appears to love people and craves their attention. It’s obvious that he’s had a rough life and right now he’s hungry for companionship and food — Jock’s way too thin. Given tender, loving care, some vetting and a healthy diet, this sweet, friendly, affectionate, smart and handsome fellow will blossom into a gorgeous dog. Jock will do best with an active family with owner(s) willing to give him nutritious food, basic obedience training, consistent exercise in a fenced area or on leash, their love and kindness, in a good forever home. For more information about Jock, visit Shelter Dogs. Jock’s ID is No. 1347. Come in for a visit; he’s available through next Saturday at the shelter.
