Handsome with his American shorthair coat of glistening jet-black, 1-year-old, already neutered Karnak is a big, charming lover boy who wants to steal your heart. He will do it, too, with a disposition that is gentle and sweet. All he wants is love, attention and petting. When that’s given to him, along with affection, care, warmth and stability, Karnac will blossom into a devoted friend, pet and companion and make a wonderful addition in a variety of good forever, loving, home settings.

Come adopt him and because he’s already neutered, you can take him right home after his reduced fee is paid. Karnak’s ID is No. 0073. He would love to meet you. Pay him a visit; he is available at the shelter.



Beautiful in her black/brown brindle coat with white highlights, this American pit bull terrier mix is a large, approximately 3-year-old girl. She’s a little shy, but when given lots of love and attention, she will come right out of her shell. Reagan lies quietly on her bed, does well when bathed, enjoys playing with a ball and will gently take treat from your hand.

Reagan is busy filling out her paperwork to be ready for her adoption. She will do best with owner(s) willing to give her their love, attention, plenty of regular exercise in a fenced area or on a leash, basic obedience training and a good forever home. Reagan’s ID No. 0028.

Come meet this remarkable dog; she is available at the shelter.
