    Brooke is a very pretty 9-month-old dilute calico kitty. She has an exotic look to her, with the shape of her head being similar to a Siamese. Brooke also has amazingly, large golden eyes. Brooke is very friendly and very active. She is not a kitty to just lie around. Brooke likes to be moving and she takes great interest in her surroundings. Brooke will be a wonderful lifelong companion for her lucky adopter.

    Layla is a cute 1-year-old Jack Russell Terrier mix. She is very outgoing with people and gets along with other dogs. Layla’s owner hit on hard times and Layla was brought to the humane society for a fresh start. True to her breed mix, Layla is energetic and likes to explore and interact with people. Layla deserves a home where she will get the love and attention that she deserves. Come for a visit and see if Layla is that perfect match for you!

    Have you made any New Year’s resolutions? How about focusing on some ideas to enhance the health and add some fun to your pets’ lives. Regular exercise and good nutrition will help your pet maintain a healthy body weight. That daily walk for your dog not only provides exercise, but is also a time to teach good manners and provides quality bonding time for you and your pet. Many kitties love some indoor play time with their favorite cat toy and person. 

    Regular brushing, and bathing as needed, will keep your pet attractive and smelling good. Grooming, for both dogs and cats, can help keep the skin healthy. It is also a good time to check for external parasites or any injuries that may be hidden by your pet’s fur. 

    Giving your dog or cat extra time and attention will not only provide benefits for your pet, but it also does wonders for the pet owner!
