Fernando—A young white and orange kitty who loves lounging the day away. This friendly male is currently in a larger kennel that has a “cat hammock” hanging inside – he loves lounging in it! He can be a bit picky about his feline friends, so he might need a little bit of time to warm up to new companions.
Mr. Whiskers—A big tabby cat that is about 4 years old. Changes are a bit stressful for him, so he will likely need a little bit of time to adjust to his new home. He can be independent, but he’s also very sweet and likes to snuggle when he’s in the mood! He is okay with mellow cats, but other dominant males sometimes bother him.
Lemon—A sweet older cat that was left at the front door of the shelter with no information or history. Lemon is currently in foster care receiving treatment for diabetes; her foster home reports that they call her Sugar, since she’s so sweet! When Lemon is feeling better, she’ll be looking for a mellow home that is understanding of the needs of a diabetic cat.
Waggs—A loving senior kitty that lost her home due to a family medical situation. This little tortie gal just wants to share her love with someone! Waggs has spent her entire life as an only cat, but with a bit of patience, Waggs can successfully integrate herself into an existing pride of cats. She does require solitude at mealtime, as she is submissive about her food bowl; otherwise, she just wants to be part of your family and enjoy a soft bed in a sunny location. She gives a cute little squeak of “Mew!” when she wants company or food.
Ciel—A young Siamese mix male cat with beautiful blue eyes. He loves exploring new places, especially if there are lots of fun nooks and crannies to hide in! He seems to be more accepting of submissive female cats rather than male cats.
Cookie—A 3.5-year-old Boxer mix who can’t wait to find a family that will help her continue to improve her training and commands. She did not have much training before coming to the shelter, but volunteers are working with her to help her learn proper behavior. She’d love to show you how well she can “come,” “sit,” and “down.” She is an energetic girl that would like to be with a family that has an active lifestyle. She has not been around younger children or cats, but she does do well with men, women, and older children.
Gretchen—A young and petite pit mix who needed to have one of her rear legs amputated due to a severely fractured femur. She certainly doesn’t let that slow her down though! She loves to relax and give kisses, she’s very comfortable in new places, and she thinks that treats make everything better! Gretchen is currently in foster care. Call the shelter for information on how to meet Gretchen.
Flash Gordon—A handsome 3-year-old rat terrier mix. Flash recently took a field trip to the KRSN radio studio, and he absolutely loved his outing! He curled up on his handler’s lap and feel asleep for the entire interview. Afterwards, he had a friendly visit with some humans (including children), which he also enjoyed. This petite boy can’t wait to make you fall in love with him.
Other dogs at the shelter include Julie (a young cattle dog mix), Monkey (a young boxer mix), and Anita and Hanna (both smaller terrier mixes). Stay tuned for more information about these dogs, or stop by the shelter to meet them.
