We have no adoptions to report this week, but we did have a visit from a former resident. Max, the Labrador retriever/husky mix, and his new owner dropped in to report on how well everything is going and how happy they are. This was a certainly a perfect match and we’re just delighted.

At the moment we still have only one animal available for adoption. Alice, the two-year old,torbi and white cat is our featured pet again this week. Alice has matured into a really lovely yet funny girl who is extremely affectionate and playful. She adores people and is a good lap sitter, but would do best with an experienced cat owner since she believes that she’s the queen of the castle. She’s tolerant of dogs but not cats; she wants it all for herself. Although the staff has fallen in love with Alice and will miss her, we would be willing to let her go to the right home.

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.
