Roxy and Tookie


Roxy is a 6-year-old, black and tan, female Shepherd mix. She is housebroken and good with kids. According to her caretakers, Roxy will need a home with a secure yard because she is able to jump a seven-foot fence. They say Roxy is a very good girl and would do best with someone home most of the time. Roxy is already spayed and ready to go to a loving home. Her Intake number is 272825, and her Reference Picture number is 1642.

Tookie is a 3-month-old, white and orange, male Domestic Short Hair. He is playful and friendly. Tookie’s caretakers say he loves to be snuggled and held. His Intake number is 275552, and his Reference Picture number is 1292.

  • 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 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.
