We’re delighted to report that Max, the Labrador/husky mix, and his new family are totally smitten with each other. This makes us so happy. And the adoption news for the week is that Dee Dee, the year-old calico, has an adoption pending. We’re hoping for the best for this lovely girl.

Alice, the two-year old, torbi and white cat is our featured pet this week. Alice has matured into a really lovely girl. She’s extremely affectionate and playful, adores people and is a good lap sitter, but would do best with an experienced cat owner since she believes that she’s the one in charge. She’s tolerant of dogs but not cats; she wants all the loving for herself. This cat is loaded with personality and could be your valentine this year and forever. 

Also available is Sally, a ten-year old tuxedo cat. Sally was abandoned by her owners and is fearful of her surroundings. She is beginning to warm up and seems to be a really sweet girl. Stop by and see if she picks you as her valentine.

Looking for a gift for the person/people who have everything? Please consider making a donation to the Shelter in their name(s). It’s the perfect gift for any occasion.

Just give us a call during regular shelter hours.
