A friendly girl who likes interacting with people, that’s Miley, a large, 4-year-old American pit bull terrier mix. Beautifully dressed in her tan and white shorthair coat, she’s eager to please, and she will do best with a loving, attentive and active family/owner(s) who will spend time with her, include her in their activities, give her plenty of regular exercise and play in a fenced area or on a leash, give her some obedience training and, of course, a good forever home. For more on Miley, ID No. 2047, see Facebook’s ENC Shelter Dog page. Come meet her; she’s available at the shelter.



At approximately 2 years old, Oliver, an American shorthair tabby, is a big, handsome guy decked out in his beautifully colored, champagne-ginger-orange-striped coat with white bib and paws. This magnificent cat is friendly, lovable and calm, and he will be a wonderful and welcome addition in a good, loving forever home. For more on Oliver, ID No. 2062, see Facebook’s Friends of Beaufort County Shelter Cats Page. Pay him a visit; you’ll be glad you did. He is available at the shelter.
