Packed with plenty of personality and charm, this 2-month-old male kitten exhibits a sweet, friendly, playful and gentle nature. Non-purebred cats have a little of this and a little of that in their genes. This baby, a black and white bi-color, also has Turkish Van DNA and his ears are breed specific, most likely Abyssinian or Devon Rex, and all that is rolled up in one neat little package we call Thor! Really nice, loves being held, played with and showered with attention, Thor will fit well into a variety of home settings. When he’s given the love, warmth and stability of a good forever home, he will blossom into a devoted friend, pet and companion. Thor’s ID is No. 1203. Come visit this remarkable kitten in person. He’s available at the shelter.

Olaf (Dottie Walker)


Approximately 3 years old, Olaf is already neutered and ready to go, after his reduced fee is paid. Listed as a Labrador Retriever/hound mix, this large fellow is handsome with an attractive face, a well-proportioned body, brown/black coat and long legs. A bit shy at first, Olaf quickly warms up showing his friendly, fun-loving side. Olaf will do best with active owner(s) willing to give him their love, take him along on their outings, exercise — playtime may be included — in a fenced area or on a leash, basic obedience training and a good forever home. Olaf’s ID is No. 1185.Come in and see this great dog; he’s available at the shelter.
