I'm "GAIA",

Happy Belated Motherís Day! Rainbow and I know what itís like being a mom.
Itís being overlooked by adopters in favor of our kittens.
Both Rainbow and I were good mothers and raised great kittens.
It takes a special cat to do that and weíre looking for a home that recognizes our worth.
The great thing about adopting an adult kitty is that you know what youíre getting.
For example, I'm a laid-back gal who would be perfect for an adopter looking for a loving cat that wants affection.
Iím a black short-hair who is 1- to 3-years-old.
Weíre both $45 off our adoption fees courtesy of the shelter and the Jefferson County Humane Society.
If I havenít convinced you to adopt one of us, our kittens are available too.
But youíll pay full price for a kitten and we canít guarantee what their personalities will be like when they grow up.


**SPECIAL** $40 off my spay fee and just $20 for my adoption fee!

For example, I'm an agreeable lady who would be a good fit for a home with dogs. Of course, I mean dogs that actually like cats.

"ECLIPSE" - Pug
5-7 yrs   Male

Brindle male pug hit by car...NEED TO FIND OWNER (no photo at this time)


5/19 Accident happened in front of Darrell's Tire on 421

"FRANK" - Australian Shepherd mix *NEUTERED*
5 yrs   Male 55 lbs

I'm a sensitive boy who will need to time to adjust to new surroundings and new people.
I am choosy about who I like, so please be sure to spend some time with me so that we can make sure I will accept you as my new forever friend.

The shelter is not my favorite place since I don't like being kenneled and I don't like noise.
I would not be an ideal dog for a home with young children. They make noise and their unpredictable touching makes me anxious.
I just need to know that everything is going to be okay and I'll give my heart to you.

I need to meet any animals in the home before I can leave.

I would love my new home to have an outdoor place where I can bathe in the sunlight and explore.

**I'm NEUTERED and up-to-date on vaccinations.**

"DREYFUS" - Boxer/Lab mix
2-3 yrs   Male 62 lbs

I'm done with my heartworm treatment and READY FOR A HOME OF MY OWN! The vets say I'm good to go!

I'm full of energy now that I'm feeling better, so I need some exercise!

I'm a handsome boy. I'm very attentive and I want to please.
I will take my treats softly and I wait for them patiently like the gentleman I am.
I still scare easily and will feel most comfortable in a quiet home.
I need a home with no cats and other dogs must meet me first.

"CHURCHILL" - Beagle mix
5-7 yrs   Male 17 lbs

I look pretty rough right now, but it's just because I was out for so long and had a run in with ticks and fleas. Now that I'm here, I'm getting some good nutrition and the fleas and ticks have been treated. I'll look fabulous soon!

"ACE" - Black & White Short-hair
3-5 yrs   Male

I'm a laid-back fellow who lives by my own schedule.
I have some hobbies you should know about:
I like to sleep on the window sill.
I also enjoy sleeping on the sofa.
You'll find me sleeping in my bed (or yours) too.
When I'm not busy sleeping, I do have fun playing.
I will seek out affection from you when I need some loving.
Because I like my own schedule, I would not be good for a home with young children that want to carry me around.
I also am not fond of dogs.
I prefer dry cat food and am actually only picky about the canned food I'm served.
I would be okay living in someone's barn too.

HELP OUR MEDICAL FUND:
Donate Steel and Aluminum Cans   

Not only can you donate aluminum cans for recycling, you can now DONATE STEEL CANS too!
All we ask is that you rinse out the steel cans really well (we don't want to encourage not-so-adoptable critters to hang out around the shelter) and place them in a separate bag from the aluminum cans.
Drop both types of cans (remember, in separate bags) in the large labeled bin that is on the east side of the shelter - that's to your left when facing the shelter's front door.
Thanks for helping with our four-legged friends' medical needs!

HOW YOU CAN HELP

DOC *not available for adoption*
   

I'm the new King of the Shelter. You will find me roaming the lobby and helping to welcome people and pets to our shelter.

Sometimes you'll find me snoozing in my cozy bed on the counter...I love a good massage, so feel free to spoil me!

I'm a laid back guy, so I'm pretty good at putting people and pets at ease. I'm also helping to "cat-test" other animals.

"BU"
   

IN MEMORY

"BU", our shelter cat, went across the rainbow bridge Monday May 22 from cancer.
Bu greeted visitors with love and playfulness, helped at the front desk with paperwork,
let the incoming pets know it was going to be okay, and tested the dogs for cat-friendliness.
But most of all Bu was friend, family & coworker to shelter employees and volunteers.
Bu is short for Shinobu which means to endure.
He will be missed and will endure in our hearts!
Bu was 17 years old.
