Katie is a three-year-old Catahoula Leopard dog who loves to play. Her caretakers say she loves walks and adventures and is great at playing catch. Katie needs to be spayed before going to her “fur”ever home. Her intake number is 389711. Reference picture: Katie.

Beau is an eight-year-old domestic long hair Maine Coon. His caretakers say he is super soft and super sweet. He was born with a bowed leg but he doesn’t let that stop him from living his best life and loving his humans. Beau is neutered and ready to go to his “fur”ever home. His intake number is 394429.

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