This would be a wonderful time to consider giving a home to one of the animals in the shelter.
All adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro chipped.
Basil — Young, petite Lab-mix. Even with all of the barking dogs at the shelter, she sits calmly at her kennel door until you open it to let her out. She would love to show offer her obedience skills to a new mom or dad.
Fly —A very sweet female Border Collie-mix. She is very shy and living in a foster home, where she is gaining some confidence. To meet Fly in her foster home, call 412-3451.
Mildred — Young Lab-mix with a bundle of energy. She has a wonderful time running her energy off at the dog park and despite her small size, she enjoys the company of large dogs more than small dogs. She is a very sweet girl who wants to please.
Penny — This two-year-old Pit Bull has weaned her large litter of puppies and can’t wait to find a new home. She walks nicely on leash and stays close on off-leash hikes, comes when called. Great mid-level energy and adores kids, OK with cats and other dogs. She comes with a free training consultation with Proton Pawsitive Dog Training to help settle her in. Call Jacinta at 433-8617 to meet her.
Puppies —Eight-weeks-old, Pit Bull/Rottweilers who should mature to between 60 and 80 lbs. Extremely well-socialized and suitable for homes with kids, dogs and cats. They come with a free training consultation with Proton Pawsitive Dog Training to help them settle in. Call Jacinta at 433-8617 to meet them.
Remy — Two-year-old German Shepherd-mix. Very shy initially, but she will shower you with love once you gain her trust. The secret to earning her love is long walks. Remy has never met a large dog that she doesn’t like, but she finds small dogs and cats quite annoying and prefers not to live with them. Come meet this sweet and loving girl.
Romper — A very shy boy that will bond with his person, given enough time and consistency. Changing homes is frightening for him, but having a dog companion helps. To meet Romper in his foster home, call 412-3451.
Turbo — Two-year-old brown-and-white male dog seeking endless tennis ball tosses and a loving owner who will help him with his new diet. Turbo is a bit large for small children, but he enjoys the company of adults, female dogs and some male dogs.
Calysta — Domestic short-hair Calico Tabby found on Rover. Since her family never came for her, she is hoping that a new family will come fall in love with her and take her home. Very sweet, loves attention.
County ordinance requires that a roaming animal be kept for 10 days waiting for owners to claim it. Keep those tags on your pets so they can come home to you quickly.

• Tan, female dog found roaming near the airport. Very sweet girl, someone must be searching for her. Ask for Oodles.
