A friendly girl who likes interacting with people, that’s Zoey, a large, 3-year-old American pit bull terrier mix. Her velvet-like shorthair coat — the color of taupe, is amazingly beautiful. Zoey needs to be the only dog 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 Zoey, ID No. 0372. She’s available at the shelter.



This beautiful American shorthair calico-tabby girl wants love, attention and caressing. Maddie is stunning in her spectacular coat of orange, ebony and white, and her huge amber-colored eyes and a rosebud nose complete this pretty picture. Maddie, at 6 months, is a really nice cat with a friendly, playful 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 Maddie, ID No. 0375, a visit and see for yourself what wonderful cat she is. She’s available at the shelter.
