Never miss a local story.
Description: This special-needs dog has glaucoma. He came to us stuffed in a too-small crate left in the driveway of the shelter late one night, so he started off very scared and distrusting of people. But in a couple of days he found out all humans are not created equal and now trusts people once he gets to know them. Tommy is house trained, LOVES to play with other dogs of all sizes, ages and either sex. Tommy still has vision in his remaining eye, but will likely become blind eventually.
Breed: Buff and white, medium haired
Description: This kitty has spent most of his life outside an apartment complex in the cold and heat, relying on strangers to feed him. After being rescued and taken to the vet for an exam, he is ready to be adopted. He is friendly, mellow, loves to be brushed and is a wonderful cat. He is in excellent health and has been around other cats and dogs. Please stop by and visit with him and the other cats that are at the shelter between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday or by appointment.
