Ladybug, a 24-week-old female mixed breed, arrived at the shelter via one of its partner shelters in California. Shelter evaluators think she’ll do well in a calm home where children are at least 8 years old. You can meet her in the Lapdog Lofts in the new adoption center.
Val, a 20-month-old female domestic shorthair, arrived at the shelter with three kittens who all have been adopted. She’s not keen on being held, but she’s a lover; she will curl up and sleep on you. Also, she is polydactyl — she has extra toes. Check out those thumbs! You can meet her at the new adoption center.
Coco Chanel, a 14-year-old female Bichon Frise, is a surrender because her owner is moving to senior housing that does not permit pets. He said she likes long car rides, sleeps a lot, and has not lived with other pets. Coco knows “sit” and “come,” and likes to play with plush, squeaky and tug toys. She also will push her nose under your hand so you’ll pet her. She is house-trained and has not been allowed on furniture. Shelter evaluators think she’ll do well in a calm home where children are at least 12 years old. You can meet her in the Lapdog Lofts in the new adoption center.
