Oriole and Monarch

Friendly, playful, calm and just a little over 2 months old, these kittens just want love, attention and quality play time. Both are females, with American shorthair coats. Oriole is a dilute calico with her coat of pale orange, gray and white. Monarch, also a calico, wears brighter colors of orange, black and white. Both kittens will fit well into a variety of home settings. When given the love, warmth and stability of a good forever home(s), they will blossom into devoted pets and companions. Come in and meet Oriole ID No. 1375 and Monarch, ID No. 1376. They are available at the shelter.



Friendly, sweet and well-behaved, Nubbee, an American pit bull terrier mix, is pretty in her red and white shorthair coat. At 3 years old, she conducts herself like a lady, as demonstrated by her accepting dog biscuits — gently and with care. This large girl will do best with a loving, attentive and active family who will spend time with her, give her plenty of regular exercise and play, preferably in a fenced area or on a leash, give her obedience training, and of course, a good forever home. Nubbee’s ID is No. 1363. Come meet this charming girl, she’s available at the shelter.
