A friendly, sweet guy who likes to give kisses, that’s Tugg, an American pit bull terrier mix. He’s handsome in his brown and white shorthair coat, and, at 2 years old, Tugg appears to have had some training, and he’s eager to please. This large male will do best with a loving, attentive and active family who will spend time with him, include him in their activities, give him plenty of regular exercise and play, preferably in a fenced area or on a leash, give him obedience training and, of course, a good forever home.

Come meet this charming fellow; Tugg’s ID is No. 1360. He’s available at the shelter.



This handsome hunk is already neutered so he’s good to go, as soon as his reduced fee is paid. Friendly, smart and calm, Lucky, an extra-large male tabby, is handsome in his American shorthair coat of ebony and honey-colored stripes. His huge, light-green eyes are showstoppers and heart-warmers. At 11 years old, Lucky needs a good forever home where he will find stability and love that will enable him to return to the wonderful pet and companion that he is. Lucky’s ID is No. 1426. Pay him a visit and see for yourself what great cat he is. He’s available at the shelter.
