Mammas is a two-year-old Lab/Pit mix looking for her “fur”ever home. She was found wandering the streets with her litter of puppies. All her puppies have been adopted and now it’s her turn to find a loving home. Her caretakers say she is super sweet, playful and has a lot of love to give. Mammas is spayed and ready for adoption. Her intake number is 406923. Reference: picture: Mammas.

Joseph is a two-year-old domestic long hair kitty in need of a “fur”ever home. His caretakers say he is a silly boy with a huge personality. He loves to show off and play fetch and has no fear of water. Joseph is best around adults and older kids who don’t mind his style of playing. He needs to be neutered before being adopted. His intake number is 408264. Reference picture: Joseph
