Say hi to Doc. He is a 4 month old hound/lab mix who is all about making funny faces and having fun. Doc gets along well with the other dogs here at the shelter and loves the kids, but we are not sure how he feels about cats. He is up to date on his vaccinations and has been micro-chipped.







Houdini2This is Houdini.  He is a young boy, about 3 years old, he likes to play and watch over the cat department (he thinks he’s in charge!) He has a great personality, and doesn’t mind the other cats although he will definitely be the boss!  He is neutered, micro-chipped, and is current on all his immunizations.  Please come and see him for yourself!
