Kassipoeg, a 14-month-old female domestic shorthair, arrived at the shelter with her kittens, who have since been adopted. You can meet this gentle girl, whose name means “kitten” in Estonian, in the new adoption center.
Santiago, a 13-month-old male mixed breed, arrived at the shelter as a stray. He’s playful, likes tennis balls and plush squeaky toys, and will benefit by some leash training. Santiago knows “sit,” “down,” and “shake” with both paws, and shelter evaluators think he’ll do best in an active home. They’d like him to meet his potential home’s children and dogs at the new adoption center.
Starla, a 21-week-old female domestic shorthair, is a lovely and shy girl. Like many cats and kittens introduced to a new place, she’ll need love and time to adjust. You can meet Starla at a shelter offsite adoption area, Pet Supplies Plus Dearborn, 2621 S. Telegraph Road.
