Don’t overlook Dimitrios
Dimitrios is an adult male American shorthair who was left at the shelter when his owners had a baby. He is friendly, but is often overlooked for more colorful cats by pound visitors.

Save Speckles
Speckles is a pit bull terrier who was surrendered after her owner moved to an apartment where pets were not allowed.

Maggie needs a home
Maggie is an adult female Labrador retriever who gets along well with dogs and cats. She arrived at the pound with raw, torn-up paw pads from hot pavement when she was a stray, but has since recovered.
