ID# A1756406 – Nox is a 6 year old, Gray, Domestic Shorthair mix. Nox is a little indecisive. He is not sure which he enjoys more exploring or napping, so he makes time for both. Nox is friendly and independent with low play drive. Can you give this mellow fellow a forever home? He is over at the eastside shelter, and would like very much to live in a home with his person/ people and will patiently be waiting at the Eastside shelter. Please come to our Eastside shelter location and get into the virtual line.
ID# A1824099 – Benny is a 1 year-old, Gray, American Pit bull terrier mix. Benny had a ruff start before coming to the shelter, he was malnourished and uncared for but today he is a different dog. At his best, with patient consistency and using praise with tasty treats, he is a very good boy. He loves to explore, and is easily distracted by sights and smells. Benny walks best with an easy walk harness (he already has one that will go home with him). Benny is bright and attentive in quiet outdoor spaces. He is going to be a great companion pet. If you would like to visit him, come by the Eastside shelter and join the virtual line.
