Adopt-a-Pet: Kobe and Sherman

Kobe is two-year-old pit bull mix looking for a “fur”ever home. His caretakers say he is the sweetest boy. He can be a bit shy to touch and skittish around some humans, but once he is shown love, he is a sweetheart. He is good with kids and other dogs. He thinks that kitties want to play with him, so a home without that temptation would be best for him. Kobe is neutered and ready for adoption. His intake number is 393354. Reference: picture: Kobe.

Sherman is a three-year-old tabby cat who loves to love. This chatty boy loves pets and ear rubs. Sherman needs to be neutered before going to his “fur”ever home. His intake number is 398906. Reference picture: Sherman.

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).
