PETS OF THE WEEK

 

Sierra

Hello, my name is Sierra. I am a pretty little black and white cat that is looking for a new home. I had an owner for a while, but she moved into a place that didn’t allow pets. I guess she forgot she had me! Any way I have all of my vaccinations, I have a microchip, and I have been spayed. I love to lie in the sunshine in the windows in the cat room. It feels so good! But you know what would feel better? If someone would come in and adopt me and let me be a part of their family. Yea, that would be great! FYI...A little human was in the cat room today and I was just great with him! I was purring and cuddling with him! I even gave him a kiss!!

 

Sweetie Pie

My name is Sweetie Pie! I have been told that is a perfect name for me, because that is what I am…..a big Sweetie Pie!! A kind stranger found me. He searched for my owners but had no luck so he brought me here. I was never claimed by my family and now I am up for adoption. I have all of my vaccinations, I am heartworm negative, I have a microchip, and I have been spayed. I am a one-year-old terrier mix. I love to be right next to you. In fact it was hard to take my picture because I wanted to be right next to my “holder” the whole time! I have lots of love to give to my next family!
