Sophie is a friendly girl and she llikes to have your attention. If you’re looking for the perfect housemate, then she’s your cat. She’s a 4-year-old domestic short hair that has been spayed and microchipped.

She has calico fur which she refers to as her coat of many colors. There are some oranges and browns and white all mixed in. Some people believe that calico is a breed, or that it is the color of a cat. Calico actually refers to the pattern of how the coloring appears on her coat.

She was found stray and has been at the shelter since January. It’s such a big world out there that she must have lost her way. Hopefully she will find a nice new home where she will be loved and cared for.

Carlos is a busy, outgoing boy who loves attention and would make a great walking partner. He’s a 6-year-old black-and-white cockapoo that came all the way from Alabama.

He prefers a home with adults only, please, but would be willing to share with others of the canine persuasion. He will need a little bit of housetraining, as still has some accidents, but he’s anxious to learn and already knows some commands like “sit.”

He’s sure that a training class would prove most beneficial for him and his new family. He’s very playful and would love a home where he can run and have fun — and lots of toys would be nice too.

He loves attention and has lots of love to give.
