The adoption news this week is that Cabot, the long-haired orange and white cat, has been adopted and his housemate, Baby Cakes, has an adoption pending as well.

Hey big dog lovers, we have two beauties in need of a home. Astra and Ursa are a mother and daughter pair of harlequin Great Danes. Astra is eight years of age while Ursa is five and the larger of the two. They each have one blue eye. These girls may be large but they are gentle giants, just really big couch potatoes that don’t require much exercise. Both are friendly, well mannered and get along with other dogs, cats and children of all ages. These are two really nice dogs.

If you’d prefer a cat, Benny is an eight-year-old, rag doll mix who inherited those piercing blue eyes. We’re looking for a special angel for Benny as he suffers from diabetes and needs insulin injections. That said, he is a charming fellow, affectionate and quite the purrer. Is there an angel out there for Benny? Also available is Jerry, a four-year-old, male, black and white cat with artistic markings on his legs. Both are sweet, gentle, affectionate cats.
