Hayes is a fun boy who loves people but does not always get along with other dogs. We have not seen him around  cats so we can not comment on that. Hayes is around 2 years old, up to date on his vaccines , neutered, and microchipped. As you can see by his photo, one of his most favorite games to play is, “if I can’t see you, you can’t see me”.




Hello, I am Paige.  I am a very beautiful 2 year old cat with a fun nature.  Sometimes I can be bossy with the other cats, but I don’t really mind them being around.  I am told I may be part Abyssinian which could account for my bobcat-like appearance.  I am spayed and micro-chipped, and am current with all my vaccinations.  Please come to the shelter for a visit soon!
