Jackson and Killer


Jackson is a 6-to-8-year-old, blonde, male Poodle. Because he is a senior, his adoption fee is reduced. His caretakers say Jackson is such a sweet little boy – “a real cutie pie.” Jackson is already neutered and ready to go to his new forever home. There may be a grooming fee for his new haircut. Jackson’s Intake number is 297329, his Reference Picture number is 8990.

Killer is a 6-year-old, grey, female Domestic Short Hair. Her caretakers say to not let her name frighten anyone off, adding that “she is a great cat with a quiet disposition.” Killer loves to be held. She is already litter-box trained and knows to use a scratching post. Killer is good with kids and even dogs, but would probably do best as the only cat in the family. Her Intake number is 297506, and her Reference Picture number is 9082. To adopt either of these pets, contact Animal Friends of the Valleys at 674-0618.

  • 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.
