Kissing up
Nearly 1 year old, Sam’s breed is a red mackerel British domestic shorthair tabby mix. If the long breed name isn’t enough of a mouthful, Sam is also friendly, playful and full of kisses. He is a good family cat for those with children and is neutered.

Everything nice
A Russian blue shorthair, Spice just turned 1 year old. She was found as a stray, but is very playful.

Adventurous Sprocket seeks home
Sprocket is a 4-year-old tricolor beagle who was microchipped and abandoned, meaning he can be found easily by his new owners if he ever goes hunting on his own. An adventurous family dog, Sprocket would be best off as the only dog in a family with a fenced-in yard.

Dog adoption fees are $85 and cat adoption fees are $60 (both in cash). Fees include spaying or neutering, first distemper vaccine and a rabies vaccine if the animal is old enough.
