At 8 months old, this friendly, medium-size, smart girl knows the sit command, and she likes interacting with people. Shimmer, an American pit bull terrier is attractive, with her tan shorthair coat and warm brown eyes. She will do best with a loving, attentive and active family who will spend time with her, include her in their activities, give her plenty of regular exercise and play, in a fenced area or on a leash, give her obedience training and, of course, a good forever home. Come meet sweet Shimmer, ID No. 0284; she’s available at the shelter.



This beautiful American shorthair tabby girl is already spayed and ready to go, as soon as her reduced fee is paid. Tigger is stunning in a spectacular coat of buff, gray and ebony with white accents, huge pale green eyes and a rosebud nose. Tigger, at 1 year, 6 months old, is a really nice cat with a friendly, calm and gentle nature. 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. Pay Tigger, ID No. 0306, a visit, and see for yourself what wonderful cat she is. She’s available at the shelter.
