Wade, top, is a little boy with a big purr! He is a very loving, mellow and playful kitten. He is a 3 to 4-month-old light gray Tabby.

Bruce, bottom, is an outgoing and friendly 1-year-old. His ideal home would have no cats and a yard with a tall fence as he can be a bit of an escape artist. He weighs 51 pounds and is neutered. He is a fawn and white boxer/hound mix, whose adoption fee is $45 plus the cost of a rabies vaccination.

The Madison-Jefferson County Animal Shelter currently has more than 17 dogs and puppies, and 18 cats and kittens available. Pictures of additional pets waiting for adoption can be seen at www.sisaveapet.com.
