Shep, above, is a shepherd mix that is looking for an active family! He is an energetic boy that likes to be on the go. He is a chestnut puppy that is going to stay a medium-sized dog. He currently weighs 31 lbs. and is 10 to 11 months old. Oliver, below, is a good-natured boy with a laid-back and affectionate personality. He has been "ear-tipped," which means he was an outdoor cat at some point and was neutered. He is a 1 to 2-year-old orange Tabby with white patches. He is neutered, so his adoption fee is only $45 plus the cost of a rabies vaccination. He is also sponsored for $25 of his adoption fee.
