ID# A1823371 – Fred is a 11 year-old, Seal Point Domestic Shorthair mix. Fred is an outgoing and friendly senior. He loves head pets and ear scratches. Fred’s New Year’s resolution is to meet a lifelong human companion and live his life in a happy and new home. If you would like to make Fred’s year, stop by the Eastside shelter for a visit and get into our virtual line.  

ID# A1802700 – Max is a 2 year old, Brown, German Shepherd mix.  Max loves to go for walks and does pretty well on leash. He is a good boy, who loves attention and really enjoys his time in the playyard. Max would love nothing more than to go for walks or hikes with someone, or to just hang out Max is energetic, but he does slow down after a while. If you come meet Max at the eastside shelter, you will not be disappointed!
