Dog of the Week – FRED

Age: 7 years

Color: Yellow

Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $95

I’m Fred and I’m ready to play! Don’t let my age fool you. I may be middle aged at 7 years old, but I’m always ready to go. I love to go for long walks, play in the snow and just be a goofy, rambunctious Lab. I get along with other dogs, so if you already have another dog at home I should be fine, but just to be sure, bring him or her so we can do a quick meet and greet here at the shelter before I go home with you!


Cat of the Week – PEPPER

Age: 7 years

Color: Black, Brown & White

Breed: Domestic Shorthair Mix

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $45

Hi there, my name is Pepper and I’m quite the laid-back dude who’s looking to love my way into your life. I like to jump up in your lap, rub my head and face against you and curl up for a nap. I am a bit of a talker, so say my name, and I’ll answer you right back! I get along with other kitties and I don’t mind dogs one bit either. My foster mom nicknamed me Peppy Paws and she says I’m a huge love bug. I’m neutered, up-to-date on my shots and I’m ready to go home with you today!


Small Critters of the Week – FORREST

Age: 3 years

Color: Black & White

Breed: Rabbit

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $25

Hi everyone, my name’s Forrest, and I am a handsome little boy rabbit with the cutest big black smudge on my nose! I am in search of a person or family who has older children, well-behaved pets and plenty of time to spend with me outside of my cage. I love to munch on Timothy hay throughout the day and I enjoy the occasional treat of a fresh veggie. Meet me today in the Critter Cottage!
