At 3 months old, this little white, red and black Beagle-mix girl is full of love, friendliness and fun. Precious will do best with a loving, attentive and active family who will be mindful of her young age, consult with her veterinarian for her best care, spend time with her, include her in their activities, give her age appropriate obedience training and exercise — play may be included — in a fenced area or on a leash and, of course, a good forever home.

Come meet this adorable puppy, Precious, ID No. 0453. She’s available at the shelter.



This good-looking, medium-size, 6-month-old tabby boy is friendly, playful and loves being showered with attention. He’s smartly dressed in his shorthair coat with colors of champagne, buff and ebony stripes; his rosebud nose and amber eyes will melt your heart.  Gill will make a wonderful pet and a welcome addition in a good and loving forever home setting. Come meet Gill, ID No. 0436. He’s available at the shelter.
