This handsome, large, medium-hair American tabby boy is all decked out in a spectacular coat of light to dark gray stripes and cream accents. At 1 year old, Gizmo has a friendly and calm nature, and he will be a welcome addition in a variety of good forever, loving home settings. Once there, he will blossom into a wonderful pet and companion. For more about Gizmo, see Facebook’s Friends of Beaufort County Shelter Cats page, Gizmo, ID No. 1960. Visit and see for yourself what wonderful cat he is; he’s available at the shelter.



Gorgeous, smart and friendly just begins to describe Farmer, a 3-year-old, male, tricolor – black, white and red, hound mix. He’s super sweet, loves people, and this big guy will do best with an active family/owner(s) willing to give him lots of exercise in a fenced area or on a leash, take him on their outings and give him their love and attention and, of course, a good forever home. For more about Farmer, see Facebook’s ENC Shelter Dog Page — Farmer, ID No. 1924. Come visit him, he’s available at the shelter.
