At approximately 2 months old, our American shorthair, male tabby kitten is a sweet lover! Tommy adores attention, cuddling and being showered with affection. His coat displays a stunning array of stripes in oranges and creams; his huge golden eyes and a rosebud nose, make him a feast for the eyes too. This friendly, loving, little guy will make a fantastic pet, playmate and companion in a variety of good forever home scenarios. Come spend a little time with Tommy and see for yourself what a remarkable kitten he is. Tommy’s ID is No. 0016.



Sweet and adorable just begins to describe Rich, a 1-month-old male, Labrador retriever mix puppy. He’s cute as can be in his jet black, shorthair coat and tiny white goatee.

Rich needs owner(s) who will give him care during his young age. This care, as well as future care, would best be discussed with his veterinarian. Rich’s breed is known to be friendly, outgoing, good with kids, active and high-spirited. Rich will do best with an active family with owner(s) willing to give him basic obedience training, plenty of exercise in a fenced area or on a leash, their love and attention and a good forever home.

Come spend a little with time with this wonderful little fellow. Rich’s ID is No. 0022.
