Dog of the Week – PIPER

Age: 2 years

Color: Black & White

Breed: Basset Hound/American Bulldog Mix

Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: $160

Greetings, I’m Piper, a 2-year-old girl who’s ready to leap into your life, cover you with kisses and cuddle on your couch.  I am a happy girl who insists on being near her people all the time.  I am super playful and I have tons of energy, so if you like to go for walks, or even for hikes on the Ma & Pa Trail, I’m up for it!  When it comes to other dogs, I like to be the one in charge who calls the shots.  I would be a great pet for a family with older children.  Why don’t you come over and take me for a walk around the beautiful grounds of the shelter and let’s get to know one another?



Cat of the Week – HUNTER

Ages: 4 years

Don’t you just love a cat with LOADS of personality?  Then you’ve gotta come and check me out!  I’m Hunter, and I’m quite the charmer, yes I am! I love to talk, but I don’t meow…no, I make an adorable chirping noise. I chirp at you, at other cats, at what’s going on outside the window, and basically to announce everything I’m doing. It’s so cute! I also love to give kisses and lick those I love. I get along with other cats and dogs too and I love to play.  I’m just an awesome, all-around boy!  I am currently up in the administration offices. If you would like to meet me and see how charming I am, then stop on up.

This cute little guy is Patches, and at just a year old he’s ready to delight your family.  Patches would make a wonderful companion for someone who can devote an hour or two each day for exercise and affection.
