Mr. O’Malley

This handsome, large, American shorthair, tabby lover boy is all decked out in a spectacular coat of white, tan, brown and dark brown stripes. His huge, light-green eyes are showstoppers and heart-warmers. At 5 years old, Mr. O’Malley deserves and wants love, attention and petting. His friendly, calm and gentle nature will make him a welcome addition in a variety of good forever, loving home settings. Once there, he will blossom into a wonderful pet and companion. Visit Mr. O’Malley, ID No. 0465, and see for yourself what wonderful cat he is. He’s available at the shelter.



Gorgeous in her brown and black brindle coat with white features, Dutchess, a Boxer mix, displays the traits of the noble breed she is descended from: friendly, alert and smart, just to name a few. At approximately 2 years old, she will do best with an active family with owner(s) willing to give her their love, attention, consistent exercise in a fenced area or on a leash, include her in their outings, obedience training and a good, forever home. Come meet Dutchess, ID No. 0480. She’s available at the shelter.
