Denny is neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccinations: Bivalent Flu, Bordetella, Da2PPL, and Rabies. He has been dewormed and heartworm tested negative.

I am up to date on shots and heartworm negative. I like children and I just know I will make a great companion for you. My adoption fee is $150, which includes my 2018 dog tags. Won’t you please come out and see me? If you will open your home and your heart with just a little spot for me in your family, I promise to be the best girl you ever had!

PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Please meet Selena. She is a 5-year-old pointer mix that is just as sweet as she is smart. And, she is a very smart girl! Selena will make someone a wonderful companion. She just needs to find a home that has no small animals. Selena likes some dogs and doesn’t like others, so she will need to have a meet and greet with prospective housemates. She would do well as an only pet. Selena is spayed and goes home fully vetted.
