Dog, Ace 0078

A super, sweet boy, who loves people and, he will break out into a full body wiggle, when he sees you!  Ace, a large, 3 year old, Bully-mix, appears to be dog friendly, so far.  He needs attention, love and lots of regular exercise/play, preferably in a fenced yard.  With his loving personality, Ace, ID No. 0078, will make a wonderful pet in his forever home. He’s waiting at the Shelter.


Cat, Purrcy 0104

This gorgeous girl is already spayed and ready to go with a reduced fee!  Purrcy is a sweet and friendly, 4 year old, American medium hair, with a dazzling array of gray and black tabby stripes. Huge, pale yellow/green eyes complete this pretty picture.  Packed with lots of personality, Purrcy, ID No. 0104, will be a welcome and wonderful addition to a loving, forever home. Come meet her at the Shelter.
