Pets of the Week for July 9


Kermit, a 2-year-old male domestic long hair, arrived at the shelter as a stray. He is very affectionate and loves to cuddle. He has tested positive for feline leukemia. According to the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, cats with FeLV can live normal lives for prolonged periods of time. Neither a human nor a dog can be infected through contact with an infected cat. Read more about the feline leukemia virus here: Adoption fee is $35.






Lavender, a 3-year-old female mixed breed, is shy and needs lot of love and socialization. Adoption fee is $150.










Kitters, a 15-month-old male domestic shorthair, arrived at the shelter as a declawed stray. He loves to give head butts. Kitters is shy as he adjusts to the shelter’s Cat Community Center, but should be a wonderful pet for someone willing to give him time and love. If someone is interested in two cats, he seems to have made good friends with Annie, a pretty black-and-white girl sharing his living space. Adoption fee is $5.
