Hey, I’m Firecracker Jack or just Jack for short. They call me that because I know how to have fun! I just love it when I get to go out and play in the yard. I enjoy chasing the balls and just running around. I am still working on the whole leash thing, but do know my basic commands. l really enjoy exploring and playing with my friends. I’d prefer a new home with older kids that can keep up with me. So if you want an active play partner, I’m your man! Come take me out for a play date today! You won’t regret it!


Cat of the Week – MITTEN

Age: 3 years

Color: Black & Brown Tabby

Breed: Domestic Short Hair Mix

Gender: Male

Meet Mitten, a handsome brown tabby who’s a total sweetheart who loves people and gets along well with other cats. He wants to be loved so badly and rubs his head and body against your hand while purring loudly. Pretty soon he’s on his back for belly rubs! Mitten is suffering from a streak of bad luck. You see, this is his second time here at the shelter through absolutely no fault of his own. He originally came to us as a wandering stray but was soon adopted. Unfortunately his owners fell into hard times and were no longer able to care for him, so he’s back! Could you be Mitten’s happy fur-ever after? Stop by the Free Roam Room soon to meet him!

Hi! My name is Sawyer, and I’m about 10 months old and believe it or not, I came to the shelter as a stray. Because I’m still pretty young, I need your guidance to show me how to use the litter box and show me lots of affection so that I get used to people and being held. I’m a hidden gem who will reward you with a lifetime of love and happiness. I really want to find my home with you. Please stop by and see me soon!
