Handsome as can be, with an affectionate and loveable personality, that’s our lover boy, Salmon. Wearing his magnificent jet-black coat, as shiny as patent leather, this large, approximately 2-year-old, American shorthair is gentle and loves attention. Salmon will be a wonderful and welcome addition to a loving, forever home. For more information, see Facebook’s Friends of Beaufort County Shelter Cat Page, Salmon, ID No. 0152. Come visit him; he’s available at the shelter.



Friendly, loves attention and looking gorgeous in her jet-black-with-white-accented coat, meet Lucy. She’s listed as a large, approximately 1-year-old, pit bull terrier mix — and the mix may be retriever. Lucy will do best with a loving, attentive, active family who will spend time with her, include her in their activities, give plenty of regular exercise/play, preferably in a fenced area or on a leash, give her obedience training and, of course, a good forever home. For more information, visit Facebook’s ENC Shelter Dog Page, Lucy, ID No. 0148. Come visit; she’s available at the shelter.
