Pets available for adoption

Special to the Daily

Four- to 8-week-old kittens. Applications being accepted now.


Cleo – Domestic medium hair; 1-year-old spayed calico female; this sweet petite cat would do best in a home with older children; she would prefer to be the only animal in the house; an adorable cat!

Clara – I’m a gorgeous tortie celebrating my golden years. A girl never tells her real age but, just between us, I’m in great shape. No other animals please, as I can’t tolerate the competition. All I require is a sunny window and a kind-hearted person to share my retirement.

Sierra – I am a 3-year-old multicolored beauty. I’m looking for a home with a sunny window to sleep by and unlimited cat nip. I wouldn’t mind being an office cat as I am very clean, self-sufficient and I never try to escape. I don’t mind dogs or other cats as long as I have my own space.

Peewee – Domestic short hair; 3-year-old brown and black tabby; this sensitive, affectionate cat would do best being the only animal in the house; he loves attention; he used to sit in his previous guardian’s lap, purring happily.

Mickie – A warm cozy bed and a loving companion are my greatest desires. I’m a pretty 3-year-old with green eyes and black fur. I’m not into other animals much, but would love to have a lasting friendship with a kind person.

Uno – I’m a sleek, black, 1-year-old girl with a bit of “catitude.” I’m very talkative, loving and I purr a lot! Playing with toys, people and kids are my favorite things to do. I prefer to be the only pet so that I can have all the attention.

Anastasia – Five-year-old white female with blue eyes. I get along with other animals and like to play with children. I’m an easygoing and well-behaved girl who prefers to use a scratching post (vs. your furniture). I walk around purring – I’m a happy cat!

Annie – I’m a 4 1/2-year-old gray and white female. I’m mellow, calm and quite pretty. Come to visit me and I’ll show you just how affectionate I can be. I love to rub up against people.

Pringle – A 6-year-old gray and dilute calico. I’m a lover and like to watch TV while snuggled up on a warm lap. My favorite place to sleep is under the covers on my owners feet. I like attention but am fine if left home alone for awhile.

Valentine – I’ve been busy mothering my four kittens but am looking forward to being the center of attention myself again. I’m a sweet, gentle and loving 1-year-old white and gray tabby. My babies are all going home soon and I’d like to as well.


Roscoe – I’m a 1 1/2-year-old American Staffordshire terrier. I’m an energetic, smart and handsome guy, but am told that I’m a handful. All I really want is lots of love and attention. With a bit of direction and training from an experienced owner I’ll be the best dog ever. I promise that I’m a quick and eager student. I prefer an adult home without cats, but love to play with other dogs.

Brandie – Six-year-old female, black and white Aussie mix. Very shy at first, especially with men. Very mellow and loving once she gets to know you. Best in a calm home.

Mollie – A 2 1/2-year-old tan/white American Staffordshire terrier. Very affectionate, calm, obedient and smart. Great with kids and other dogs. Walks well on leash.

Louie – I’m a year-and-a-half-old Dachshund although, some people call me a “wiener dog.” I’m a little guy with a big heart and a lot of spunk. I love people, other dogs and kids.

Dexter – At only a year and a half, I’m a very

well-behaved little guy. I’m easygoing, quiet and get along well with everybody. I’ve already learned how to sit, stay, lay down and to walk well on a leash. My favorite thing is to be around people.

Bruno – I’m a 1-year-old very handsome pit bull mix. Some people are afraid of my breed, but I don’t have a mean bone in my body. I get along great with cats, kids and other dogs, especially the females. I listen well and am a very quick learner. If you sit next to me I love to lean into you and snuggle.

Newbie – I’m a 3-year-old red and white Aussie mix. I absolutely love people and am looking for a new best friend who likes to hike and play ball. Other dogs are OK, but, I would prefer to have all the attention myself. I’m well-behaved in the house and like to sleep in my crate at night.

Kali – Female black lab mix. I’m looking for a new energetic friend who can give me lots of love and attention. I’m only a year old and love to cuddle and hang out with people and other dogs.


Daisy – 1-year-old beautiful white rabbit. Very social, gets along with people, dogs, cats and likes to be held.

Mumford – I’m a 6-month-old black and white male. I am very well socialized and get along with people, dogs and Daisy, my bunny friend here at the shelter. I’m litter-box trained and would make a great addition to your family.
