Trixie and Trunky

Two sweethearts, that’s exactly what these juvenile cats are. Both are about 5 months old, and they love to purr, be held and have fun. Absolutely gorgeous, Trixie, a stunning female tortie, wears black and orange. Trunky, (not pictured) a handsome male, bicolor sports designs in ebony and pristine white. These charmers will fit well into a variety of home settings. When they’re given the love, warmth and stability of a good forever home, these juvenile cats will blossom into devoted friends, pets and companions.

Come in; they’d love to meet you. They are available through the following Saturday at the shelter.


This 6-year-old, large Labrador retriever-mix is friendly, smart, enthusiastic and nice. Greedy, a good-looking fellow, has spellbinding, icy blue eyes, and he wears a shorthair coat that’s jet black with white accents and easy to care for. Greedy is already neutered, and he’s ready to go to a good, forever home after a reduced fee is paid. He needs owner(s) willing to give good care, love, attention, lots of consistent exercise in a fenced area or on a leash and basic obedience training.

For more information, visit Greedy’s ID is No. 1849.

Come spend a little time with him; he will be available through the following week at the shelter.
