Fudge, top, is a friendly, playful 1 to 2-year-old boy. He looks serious, but is really just wondering when he is going to get to play. He is an active, yet well-behaved Plott Hound mix that likes other dogs, especially if they want to play. He wants to play with cats too, but since he weighs 50 pounds, it wouldn't be recommended as he wants to play with them like he would another dog. Fudge is neutered and his adoption fee is $45 plus the cost of a rabies vaccination.
The annual Spring Sprint 5K Run & Walk fundraiser is April 6. Registration forms are available at the shelter. The cost is $20 before March 15 and $25 after that date. T-shirts are only guaranteed for those registering before March 15. The event will start and end at the shelter, 2727 Hannah Drive. The race will begin at 8 a.m. with registration beginning at 6:30 a.m. Leashed and well-behaved dogs are invited to participate with proof of rabies vaccination.
Iris, bottom, is a sweet girl that has been at the shelter for 3 months and would like to have a home. She has a wonderful personality, and likes to be held and snuggled. She is so laid back that she doesn't mind being held on her back or even upside down! Iris is a 9 to 11-month-old kitten. She is $50 off her adoption/spay fee.
