This beautiful, friendly, playful and fun little 10-week-old girl wears a gorgeous American longhair black coat, frosted with white and a sparkling white star on her chest. Jackie-O-Lantern is a truly wonderful kitten and a delightful treasure. With her warm and loving nature, she will be a welcome addition in a variety of good and loving forever home settings. See more of Jackie-O-Lantern, ID No. 1021, on Facebook’s ENC Shelter Cat page, and at the shelter.



Handsome with his white spotted shorthair coat and listed as a 2-year-old, American pit bull terrier mix, Wilson loves attention and treats. This large, sweet boy will do best with a loving, attentive, active family who will spend time with him, give plenty of regular exercise/play — preferably in a fenced area or on a leash — give him obedience training and, of course, a good forever home. See more of Wilson, ID No. 1022, on Facebook’s ENC Shelter Dogs. He’s available at the Shelter.
