Featured Pet: Apollo & Stella

Apollo&Stella Get ready to meet an adorable odd couple! Apollo and Stella are bonded for life and looking for a loving, compassionate owner. Apollo is the young buck; he’s a 1.5 year old brown Chihuahua. Stella is his much adored matriarch companion; she is a 9 year old Labrador mix. These two are very close. Apollo is energetic, friendly, and a bit more independent. He’ll do well with daily exercise and will be a great walking buddy. Stella could join the walk for a bit, but prefers to spend her days relaxing in a low-key style of life, reflecting on how much she loves her friend Apollo. They are both very good-looking, enjoy treats, and are precious together. Come down to the shelter and say hello to this delightful duo. Apollo, A058793, and Stella, A058794… you could be their perfect third!

FEATURED PETS: BLACKIE & DANCER

BAS_2706It’s “Here kitty, kitty… girl time!”.  There’s no denying these two kitties are sisters.  Blackie and Dancer are just 1.5 years old and ready to be transported to their new life.  Look how lovely they are together with their black coats, white paws and chest – plus those intricate facial markings!  Gorgeous!  Blackie and Dancer are very smart, but a bit shy; they like the company of people, and maintain a cool independence as well.  A quieter household would be great, with older kids please.  Other cats are fine, as these girls are both of a very sweet disposition.  Do you love the idea of adding a pair of stunning sisters to the family?  Blackie, A059822, and Dancer, A059823, just might be your girls!
