Officials have reduced the adoption fees for cats for the time being to help encourage adoptions. The fee for cat adoptions is now $10. The adoption fee for dogs remains $40.

Goliath is an Anatolian Shepherd type dog that may even be a purebred. He is a young adult at 1 to 2 years old and weighs approximately 70 pounds. He is a bit thin and should weigh a little more than that. Goliath can be timid of strangers at first, but once he realizes you mean him no harm he can be very friendly. He enjoys attention. He walks on a leash and can pull a bit. He immediately sits when asked. Anatolian Shepherds are a guardian breed and he will become a loyal protector of his family.

Snickers is a 7-month-old female fawn tabby. She has both spots and stripes with the classic tabby “M” on her forehead. She has white on her face, chest and legs. Snickers is super friendly and affectionate. She enjoys attention and loves to play. She is a curious kitty and would make an entertaining companion.
