Jake and Maisy



Jake is a 7-month-old, red and white, male Terrier mix. He is still a pup, so he will need some basic training, but he gets along well with other dogs. Jake’s caretakers say he is a happy little guy and would be a wonderful family pet. He will need to be neutered before going to his new loving home. Jake’s Intake number is 272329; Reference Picture number is 0025.

Maisy is a 3-year-old, gray and white, female Domestic Short Hair. She is good with kids of all ages, and she gets along with other cats and even dogs! According to her caretakers, Maisy can be a little shy at first, then warms right up and starts purring. They add that she is very pretty. Maisy is already spayed and ready for her new forever home. Her Intake number is 272851; her Reference Picture number is 0238.

  • AFV is asking for help with their care of homeless cats by purchasing Tidy Cats litter (clumping or non-clumping) and/or Friskies Pate Classic canned food. “With so many cats and kittens being cared for at this time our supply is low,” says AFV caretakers.

Those interested can visit animalfriendsofthevalleys.com to view available animals, for more information or to make a gift that can be designated for litter or canned wet food with a personal note in the section provided. Also, please “Like” them on Facebook.

AFV wishes to thank everyone for their help with supporting the homeless.
