Good news, Torbi cat Flo has found her forever home. Here’s to years of love and happiness.

Our pet of the week is Baby Cakes, a two-year-old, female tabby. Baby Cakes is very shy and will need an owner with patience and understanding. We know there’s that special someone out there for her.

Also in need of a home is Julius, a four-year-old, male ferret. Julius is a brown and white bandit ferret who has been hand raised and is very sweet. As a bonus he comes with his cage and enough food to last for the next six to twelve months. Julius is not at the shelter so if you’d like to meet him, please contact us to make an appointment.

The next nail clinic takes place on Saturday, July 13 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.l; walks ins only, $20 cash or check.

Please join us for our annual Garden Party on Monday, June 24 from 5:30 until 8 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets please visit
