Glamorous and friendly that’s our Xena, a 1-year-old Seal Point Siamese mix. She’s ready to step out dressed in her exotic shorthair coat with unique markings and huge, China-blue eyes. A truly remarkable cat with a warm, affectionate and calm nature, Xena, ID No. 1328, will make a wonderful companion and pet in a good and loving forever home setting. Come meet this fabulous cat, you’ll be glad you did. She is available at the shelter.



This beautiful black and tan, Bloodhound mix is a large, friendly girl with a sweet and gentle nature. At approximately 2 years old, Daisy displays characteristics of the fine breed she is descended from. She will do best with an active family with owner(s) willing to give her lots of attention and love, consistent exercise — playtime may be included — in a fenced area or on leash, basic obedience training and, of course, a good forever home. The shelter is now accepting applications, in person, for Daisy’s adoption; her ID is No. 1338. Come pay this fantastic dog a visit; she’s available at the shelter.
