Ms. Sue

This beautiful 2-year-old tabby girl wears an American shorthair coat that’s to be studied and admired. Pale apricot blends with light butterscotch, morphing into buff; ebony and dark brown stripes create artistic accents. Facial features include huge pastel green-gray eyes, accents of white and a rosebud nose.

Ms. Sue’s friendly and loving disposition is demonstrated as she extends her little paw as a greeting and enticement to come closer. She will be a welcome addition in a variety of good forever, loving, home settings, where she will blossom into a true companion and pet.

Ms. Sue’s ID is No. 1522. Come meet her — she is available at the shelter.



At approximately 5 years old, this large, male, American pit bull terrier–mix is friendly, playful and affectionate. Having a trim/fit physique and wearing a brown-and-black brindle shorthair coat, Scar is a handsome fellow. Smart and attentive, he deserves a good, loving forever home, and he will do best with owner(s) willing to give him attention, care, plenty of exercise in a fenced area or on a leash, and basic obedience training.
