Dog of the Week – BASHFUL

Age: 12 years

Color: Blonde & White

Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $35

Hi everyone. My name is Bashful, and I’m a 12-year-old Lab mix who came to the shelter as a stray. Please don’t be discouraged by my age…the quality time we spend together is much more important than some silly little number. I am a very sweet and energetic boy who’s looking for a home where I can be the center of attention and the only pet in your life. I would love to meet you and hope you come in to visit soon!


Cat of the Week – ORLANDO

Age: 2 years

Color: Grey & White Calico

Breed: Domestic Shorthair Mix

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $95

Hi there, my name is Orlando and I am a super duper sweet guy with the biggest heart. I love everyone and everything including other cats. I enjoy playing with my toys, long naps, and snuggling. I would make the perfect family cat! Please take some time to stop in and check me out. I look forward to meeting you.


Small Critter of the Week – DAISY

Age: 3 months

Color: Tan & White

Breed: Domestic Rat

Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: $20

Rats make wonderful pets! Hi, I’m Daisy and I’m a little 3-month-old female domesticated rat. Rats are extremely friendly and sociable and when handled gently, we quickly learn to enjoy riding on your shoulders and napping in your lap. We are also very curious, intelligent and always up for some fun. I’d love to be adopted into a home where there’s another female rat, but if not, just please provide me with plenty of toys and handling so I stay mentally alert and physically fit.
