Thelma (629414) – Hi, Iâ€™m Thelma. Iâ€™m currently in a foster home and doing great. My foster Mom says I have perfect manners: donâ€™t beg, donâ€™t chew things up, house trained, walk good on a leash, and barely shed. Iâ€™m gentle, playful and extremely tolerant of small children. I would be perfect for your home. (Thelma is a four-year-old spayed female mixed breed.)
Big Bama (639376) – Perfect cat alert! Iâ€™m a very loving cat. I love attention, sitting on your lap and even liked being groomed. And I like other cats and dogs. Oh, did I tell you how soft my fur is? I need a family to love, can it be yours? (Big Bama is a four-year-old neutered male.)
Dave (609325) – Iâ€™m super cute, house trained, walk good on a leash and am good with kids. Could you ask for a better dog? Oh yeah, I know sit and down too. Please adopt me!
(Dave is a one-year-old neutered boxer mix.)
Phoenix (641707) – My foster Mom says Iâ€™m regal like a lion. Iâ€™m a sweet, easy going guy and am good with other cats. No dogs please, they scare me. And Iâ€™m a lap kitty. I was abandoned and probably hit by a car. I lost one of my eyes in the accident. (Phoenix is a five-year-old neutered male.)
Adam (641474) – Iâ€™m mellow and rarely bark, but still love to play. I should be matched to other dogs in the household, because I may be too playful for some dogs. (Adam is a four-year-old neutered Jack Russell Terrier.)
Merryweather (632844) – I keep looking out the window at the shelter for my new family. Is it yours? Iâ€™m a beautiful kitty who was lost on the streets. Please take me home. (Merryweather is a spayed young adult female.)
Harley (641872) – Harley is a handsome dog with a beautiful brindle coat. He is smart, eager to please and very quick to learn tricks and commands. Stop by the shelter and check him out. (Harley is a one-year-old neutered Staffordshire.)
Katy Bell (646156) – Iâ€™m a friendly, beautiful green eyed kitty that is just waiting for you. Iâ€™m in Kitty Kingdom at the shelter. Hope you come to visit me soon. (Katy Bell is a young adult spayed female.)
Vinnie (643295) – My foster Mom adores me. I am well mannered and know sit, down, and shake. Iâ€™m good with other dogs and cats. I would love a new family. Can it be yours? (Vinnie is a five-year-old neutered male. Breed is mixed shepherd.)
Angelo (623483) – Hi, Iâ€™m Angelo, an orange and white cutie. Iâ€™m a friendly cat, but am a little scared at the shelter. Take me home, and I promise to love you to pieces. (Angelo is a young adult neutered male.)
Millie (642407) – My fur is soooooo soft the shelter rabbits are jealous. I greet everyone who visits Kitty Kingdom. I just love to be held and even like getting my beautiful fur brushed. Take me home today. (Millie is a young adult spayed female.)
