Please note, the shelter is closed on the first Wednesday of each month for cleaning and maintenance.



Handsome in his brown shorthair coat with white and dark brown accents, approximately 1-year-old Simon is listed as a large, shepherd-mix fellow. He will do best with an active, loving and attentive family who will spend time with him, include him in their activities, give him plenty of regular exercise — play may be included — preferably in a fenced area or on leash, give him obedience training and, of course, a good forever home. Come meet this personable fellow; Simon’s ID is No. 1900. He’s available at the shelter.



This sweet boy is a beautifully marked American shorthair tabby, and he is so handsome he’s pretty. His soft coat of pristine white, champagne and darker orange stripes is a delight to stroke; huge eyes that glisten and a rosebud nose create a feast for the eyes. Festus is calm, gentle, friendly and in need of love and a good forever home. Listed as an approximately 3-month-old kitten, Festus will fit well into a variety of home settings. When given the love, warmth and stability of a good forever home, he will blossom into a devoted pet, companion and a genuine treasure. Come meet darling Festus, ID No. 1890. He’s available at the shelter.
