Josiah, Rodney and Abby

Peas in a pod — that’s our friendly, playful and attractive, 4-month-old, American shorthair tabbies. They wear almost identical coats with light and dark orange stripes and hints of white highlights. Their huge eyes are spellbinding.

Affectionate boys, Josiah and Rodney are genuine purr-meisters. Abby (not in the photo) is a loveable female and she looks very much a like her brothers. All three love sweet talk and attention. When given a good forever home, with loving and caring owner(s), they will blossom into a wonderful pets and companions. For more information on them, visit Shelter Cats. Josiah’s ID No. 1531; Rodney’s ID is No. 1532 and Abby’s ID is No. 1533. Come in and have a little playtime with them; they’re available through next Saturday at the shelter.


Meg, a white, Miniature Poodle–mix, is an older dog of 10 years. This sweet girl has special needs because she appears to be blind and deaf. But she walks nicely, although slowly, on a leash; she’s calm, gentle and she tries to please. Darling Meg wants and needs a loving forever home that will provide her with a comfortable, peaceful and safe place to be cared for and loved. And in return, she will be a faithful companion and friend.

For more information, please visit Shelter Dogs. Meg’s ID is No. 1617. Pay her a visit and spend a little time. She’s available through the next Saturday at the shelter.
