Adopt a Pet: Foxy and Taz


Foxy is a four-year-old Cairn Terrier Pomeranian Mix. His caretakers say he is a very loving boy who has a lot of energy to play. He is good with dogs and kids. Foxy is unaltered and would need to be fixed before going to his “fur”ever home. His intake number is 339747. His reference picture number is 2275.

Taz is a nine-year-old white domestic short-hair. His caretakers say he is a spunky boy who gets along with other cats. He is litter-box trained. Taz is neutered and ready to go to his “fur”ever  home. His intake number is 340026. His reference picture number is 39471.

All dog and cat adoption fees include a microchip, basic shelter vaccines (excluding rabies) and a free veterinarian check-up. All cats/kittens, pitbulls and Chihuahua adoptions are just $5 (spay/neuter fees, if applicable, are additional).
