This fun little guy loves cuddles, being held and his playtime! At approximately 6 weeks old, Babbles is a handsome, American shorthair, tuxedo kitten. He’s adorably dressed for a party sporting his black jacket, white bib and white feet. An adorable kitten with a warm and loving nature, Babbles will be a welcome and wonderful addition in a variety of good and loving forever-home settings. Come play with Babbles, ID No. 1071 at the shelter.



Very sweet, friendly, outgoing Lucky is an approximately 2-year-old hound mix. He’s a large, handsome tricolor with long legs and a too-trim body. Lucky deserves some TLC and  good food and will do best with loving, attentive owner(s) who will spend time with him, give him regular exercise/play/outings — preferably on leash or in a fenced area — some obedience training and, of course, a good forever home. See more of Lucky, ID No. 1089, on Facebook ENC Shelter Dogs. He’s available at the shelter.
