Astro, a 1-year-old male mixed breed, arrived at the shelter already knowing a few tricks. He is an energetic and agile boy who shelter evaluators think will do best in an active home.
Fran, a 5-year-old female mixed breed, loves to snuggle up in laps. She is an affectionate bundle of energy that loves to play outside. She already knows how to “sit” and is eager to learn more. Fran has lived on her own for some time but has done phenomenal with children during the shelter’s Read to Rover program. She has tested positive for heartworm, but FAMD covers the cost of the treatment.
Firefly, a 13-week-old male domestic shorthair, has a playful nature and is ready to pounce and prance with all sorts of toys.
