Already neutered and good to go to his forever home after his reduced fee is paid! This big boy wears a snow-white shorthair coat and has gorgeous blue eyes. At 4 years old, Raymond, an American pit bull terrier mix, is very sweet and friendly. He will 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 in a fenced area or on a leash, give him obedience training and, of course, a good forever home. For more about Raymond, ID No. 2002, see Facebook’s ENC Shelter Dog page. He’s available at the shelter.


Handsome, friendly and loves attention, meet Tinsel, an approximately 2-year-old, American shorthair. This large fellow is dressed for success, in his tabby-striped coat of gray, tan, black and white. A truly remarkable cat with a warm, affectionate nature, he will be a welcome addition in a variety of good and loving forever home settings. For more about Tinsel, ID No. 1984, see Facebook’s Friends of Beaufort County Shelter Cats page. Come meet him; he’s is available at the shelter.
