At approximately 3 years old, this good-looking, large, brindle and white bully-mix fellow is a friendly, tail-waggin’ boy. Caesar loves attention, and he needs owner(s) willing to give him plenty of it, plus love, care and consistent exercise in a fenced area or on a leash. He deserves a good, loving forever home where he can be a faithful companion and pet.

Come spend a little time with Caesar, he is available at the shelter.


Exquisite — that’s our American shorthair tabby girl. Four-month-old Peaches has the most intriguingly beautiful markings. Tabby stripes in soft and dark gray dominate her appearance; accents of a bib and paws in pristine white are also evident. But if you look closer, the palest of peach shows, especially on her face, and her sweet nose resembles that of a dilute tortoiseshell cat. Her disposition of charm, sweetness and tranquility is matched by her beauty. When she’s given the love, warmth and stability of a good forever home, she will blossom into a devoted friend, pet and companion. For more information, visit and click on the appropriate links. Peaches’ ID is No. 1406.

Come in and meet this remarkable cat — she’s available at the shelter.
