The Cat of the Week is Mary Lynn, ID No. 42811706.

Mary Lynn is a Bombay/Domestic Short Hair. She is solid black with large round amber eyes. She is three to four months old.

She has received the first in the series of kitten vaccines. Mary Lynn is very affectionate and enjoys attention. She is also a curious and playful kitten, according to volunteers at Animal Control.

This week’s pup is Duke, ID No. 42960594, and is in Polk County Animal Control after an owner surrender because his family felt they could not provide proper care.

He is a 10 month old jack russell terrier/beagle mix. His previous family wrote that he loves bones, walks and treats.

Duke likes kittens and is okay with other dogs. He does not like being alone.

Volunteers at the shelter added that: “He’s young and full of energy but so dang funny. Got to love him!”
