Lady Bird

This large, approximately 1-year-old pointer-mix is a friendly and absolutely gorgeous girl with striking markings and features including her warm brown face, ears and legs and a coat of white and brown tick. Lady Bird is an application only dog. Those interested in her should go into the shelter, in person, and fill out an application. Once all applications have been reviewed, the shelter will call the applicant that the shelter believes is best suited for this dog, as well as having experience with this breed. Lady Bird’s ID is No. 1827.




This beautiful American shorthair tabby girl is all decked out in a spectacular coat of buff, gray and ebony stripes. White highlights on her pretty face, huge pale green eyes and a rosebud nose complete a lovely picture. Scarlet, a 2-year-old, is a friendly cuddle-bug, and she loves to be held and loved. She will be a welcome addition in a variety of good forever, loving, home settings. Once there, she will blossom into a wonderful pet and companion. Visit Scarlet, ID No. 1813, and see for yourself what wonderful cat she is. She’s available at the shelter.
