Sylvester, Bugs and Lola

Friendly, playful and fun, these American shorthair kittens are listed as 1 month, 12 days old, but appear to be closer to approximately 3 months old. Sylvester, a male tuxedo, is dressed for a party in black and white. Bugs, also male, is all medium gray, but looking closer, he also has slightly darker gray stripes of a swirl tabby. Lola, the only female, is dressed in the ever-elegant silky black. All three kittens have personalities that will fit well in a variety of home settings.  When given the love, warmth and stability of a good forever home(s), they will blossom into devoted pets and companions. Come meet Sylvester, ID No. 0519; Bugs, ID No.0520; and Lola, ID No. 0518. They are available at the shelter.



Sweet, friendly Thor likes people and their attention. At approximately 1 year old, he has a playful personality, and at the same time, he tries very hard to mind his manners. He’s a large, male, retriever mix, handsome in his shorthair tan and white coat. Thor will make a great companion and do best with a loving, attentive and active family who will spend time with him, include him in their activities, give him plenty of regular exercise and play —  preferably in a fenced area or on a leash — give obedience training (he appears to have had some) and, of course, a good forever home. See a video of Thor, ID No. 0515, on the Facebook ENC Shelter Dog page. Come meet this personable fellow, he’s available at the shelter.
