Bishop, a 1-year-old male mixed breed, arrived at the shelter as a stray. He’s a friendly guy who is smart and curious but hasn’t spent a lot of time with other animals, but shelter evaluators know Bishop is a good boy who responds to “sit.” They think he would do best in an active home that likes to play, be outside and have fun with children over 8 years old. They advise all prospective adopters to take their children with them to the shelter.
Artemis, a 2-year-old female domestic shorthair, arrived at the shelter as a rescue. She is an affectionate and loving cat, and should thrive with anyone who enjoys warm, soothing purrs. You can meet her at the adoption center.
Martha, a 13-month-old female mixed breed, is a cuddly and goofy gal but hasn’t spent a lot of time with other animals. She’s also a very bright girl; she knows how to shake with both paws and sit. Her favorite toys squeak, and she also loves having that tennis ball tossed for her. Shelter evaluators she would do best in an active home that likes to play and have fun, with children over 12 years old. They advise all prospective adopters to take their children with them to the shelter.
