Dog of the Week – ROXY

Age: 2 years

Color: Tan

Breed: Hound/American Pit Bull Terrier Mix

Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: $160

Hello, my name is Roxy, and I am a very sweet young girl who came to the shelter as a stray. I am very vocal and will let you know when I want your attention! I seem to be very drawn to children so the staff here thinks I must have lived with kids before. I hope that you will stop in and visit with me soon. I could just be the perfect match for your family. I can’t wait to meet you!


Cat of the Week – LUCKY

Age: 3 years

Color: Orange & White

Breed: Domestic Shorthair Mix

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $95

Hello there, my name is Lucky and I am one big ball of handsome orange fur! I am a big boy who loves to have meowing conversations with you. I am pretty lazy so I just lay there and let you get to know me. The only thing is once you pick me up, there is no going back. I just love to be held. I will lay on your shoulder and just purr up a storm in your ear. Come on in and see me in the shelter’s Free Roam Cat Room and consider bringing me home for the holidays.


Small Critter of the Week – PENELOPE

Age: 2 years

Color: White

Breed: Rabbit

Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: $25

Hi folks, it’s Penelope here, and I’m a 2-year-old gorgeous Holland Lop who’s very used to being handled. Holland Lops rabbits learn very easily and can be potty trained. The first step when adopting a bunny is to train me to trust you and to work on developing a relationship with me. Don’t be surprised when you bring me home that for the first few days I might be scared, anxious, and not the cuddliest. Plan on spending some time and effort to demonstrate to me that I can trust you and in return, I will award you with my affection.
