Our featured pets this week are Johnny and Dakota.


Johnny is a sweet one-year-old tabby cat that was found as a stray during cold winter weather. Johnny is enjoying his comfortable surroundings at the humane society, but he would really love a permanent home. Johnny is very friendly, not a bit shy, and he is ready to greet all visitors. If you are looking for a handsome and personable feline companion, then come for a visit with Johnny and see if he’s your purrfect match!

Dakota is a precious six-month-old mixed breed puppy. We think he may have some Doberman Pincher in his background. Dakota was part of a large litter and most of his siblings have been adopted. Just Dakota and his sweet sister, Millie, are still in search of their forever homes. Dakota likes to play and explore and give puppy kisses. He loves to take naps curled up on his bed in between playtimes. Dakota is ready to become a treasured member of a loving family!


The shelter needs extra bedding to help keep the animals warm and dry. The dogs and puppies appreciate used blankets and the kitties love to snuggle in their towels.

Other supplies on the shelter wish list include paper towels, bleach, Pine Sol, dish soap, liquid laundry detergent and hand soap and sanitizer. All donations are always appreciated!
