Dog and cat of the week up for adoption


Age: 2 years

Breed: Hound mix

Sex: Male

Description: This dog has a very sweet disposition! He is a big boy and very energetic, so a home with an active family without very small children would be best. Franklin likes kids, but his enthusiasm for life might lead him to knock down a very small child. He likes many other dogs and appears to be house trained. Franklin could benefit from training since he’s had little of it in the past.


Age: 3 1/2 months

Breed: Tri-tabby

Sex: Male

Description: Boots is quite the go-getter and a confident male kitten. He is full of energy and very playful. He is also a cuddlebug. Please stop by and visit with him/her and the other cats at the shelter between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday or by appointment.
