Dog of the Week – MERLE

Age: 8 months

Color: Brown & Black

Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier Mix

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $250

Are you looking for the love of your life? Come and see me, and I think I might just fit the bill! Hi, I’m Merle and at just 8 months old, I’m still a puppy. I may be mixed with a Catahoula Leopard Dog (look it up), but the people here at the shelter aren’t sure because I came in as a stray. One thing’s for sure though: I am all sweetness and playfulness wrapped up in a cute little package. I love to play with my toys and I’m working on learning my basic commands from the volunteers here. Why don’t you plan a trip to the shelter to meet me?

Cats of the Week – DANNY BOY

Age: 3 years

Color: Orange & White

Breed: Domestic Short Hair Mix

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $95

Hi, I am Danny Boy, a handsome orange and white boy who is looking for a new start in this New Year. You see, my owners brought me here because they were moving and couldn’t take me with them. I am adjusting to my current life at the shelter but really wish that I had a real home once again. I get along with other cats and I’ll be waiting to see you in the shelter’s Free Roam Room!

Small Critter of the Week – CHARLIE

Age: 2 years

Color: Black & White

Breed: Rex Rabbit

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $50

Hi everyone, I’m Charlie the rabbit, and I am C-U-T-E cute! I was surrendered because my owner got busy and didn’t have time to spend with me anymore. I’m surrounded by friends here at the shelter, but sometimes it gets lonely, particularly at night. I miss having a person to snuggle with. My former owner says I’m a lap bunny who loves being groomed and loved on. She also said I’m litter box trained and good with dogs and kids. If you have a good lap that I can snuggle into, I want to meet you ASAP!
