Neko, above, has been taking care of her babies and is now ready to be adopted. She is a calm 2 to 3-year-old silver-colored Tabby that likes to play. She would prefer a home that would let her decide when it's play time, nap time, and so on. She doesn't get along with other cats, but likes dogs. She is $50 off her adoption/spay fee.

Roxy, below, is an outgoing and friendly 1-year-old girl. She likes to be carried and sit on laps. She is a small beagle/Jack Russell terrier mix that weighs 15 to 20 pounds. She would be a good family companion.
