Pepper is a handsome brown tabby and a great conversationalist. He’s a friendly boy who just wants a chance to follow his owner around and sit in a warm lap.

He’s also crazy about toys and can entertain himself for hours chasing objects both real and imagined. If you have visitors at your house, Ihe can provide all of the after-dinner entertainment.

He gets along with dogs, but would prefer to be in a home where he’s the only kitty. he has already been neutered and microchipped. He can provide wonderful companionship, especially as a “Senior for Senior” cat. If you’re 60 or older, inquire at the shelter about this great program.

Emmie loves to learn and create little games for herself. She has a very outgoing personalityand as you can see from her curious expression, is interested in her surroundings.

Her last owners had to surrender her to the shelter because they couldn’t keep up with her active lifestyle. She has been spayed and microchipped. She is a 3-year-old blue heeler. Please remember she’s a herding breed and thinks that small, fast moving things like children are meant to be corralled like sheep.

For that reason a home with older children would be best for her. She’s very food motivated and always ready to learn new things.

She needs a family that can give her lots of attention and provide lots of exercise and play time.
