Dog, Old Man, ID No. 0200

Described as a friendly and goofy guy, this 4 year old, Hound-mix loves to follow his nose, wherever it goes!  Old Man is people friendly and he’s believed to be dog friendly, too.  He will do best when given love, attention, exercise and play – preferably in a fenced yard and inclusion in activities. Handsome, Old Man, ID No. 0200, would love a forever home to call his own. Come meet him, he is at the shelter.


Cat, Dani 0173

She’s already spayed and good to go with a reduced rate!  Dani is such a love bug however, she would prefer to be the only kitty in the house. At 4 years-10 months old, she’s a beautiful, American Shorthair with an amazing display of gray, black, tan and cream tabby stripes. With her affectionate personality, Dani, ID No. 0173, will make a welcome addition to a good forever home. She’s waiting for you at the Shelter.
