Dog of the Week – DUCHESS

Age: 3 years

Color: Tan & White

Breed: Mixed Breed

Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: $160 $80 (1/2 price throughout October)

Yeah, I know my name is “Duchess”. But here’s my secret, just between you and me: I’ll love you even if you’re no “Duke” or member of any royal family. Because I won’t check your pedigree, your bank account or your credit score. I’m only interested in checking out one thing about you: the size of your heart. And if there’s room for a tan and white mutt named Duchess, then it’s just the right size for me. My history with children is unknown, but I love people so much, the shelter staff think I’d be great with kids. Other animals are no bueno but that’s okay because I’ve got enough love to give everyone. The shelter’s open 7 days a week, so there’s no excuse not to come see me!

Cat of the Week – ITSY

Age: 10 years

Color: Black & White

Breed: Domestic Shorthair Mix

Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: $45 $22.50 (1/2 price throughout October)

Meet Itsy! This fabulous feline’s modesty is endearing, and as the days have gone by, we’ve loved watching her blossom and cultivate more intense friendships with our staff. Once you’ve won her heart, you can count on her to approach you for chin scratches and belly rubs. Itsy is very curious and loves laying in the windowsill, looking out at the world. She gets along famously with other cats and when she’s not endearing herself to you, Itsy dreams about all things food. Nom nom nom! 

Critters of the Week MOUSKETEERS

Age: unknown

Color: White

Breed: Domestic Mice

Gender: Males & Females

Adoption Fee: $5 each

Got mice? Well, we sure do! We have 13 itty bitty, teeny tiny white mice we’re calling the Mousketeers. They’re very friendly and love to explore, play, cuddle and snuggle, and because they’re social creatures, must be adopted all together or in pairs. They’re so busy and are fun to watch as they make tunnels, build nests and run on their wheels. The Mousketeers take up hardly any room, so would be a great pet for an apartment dweller. Come and see them today!
