We just love orange tabbies! Jesse is one to always want to be in the middle of things. He’s endlessly curious and always wants to help in any way that he can. You haven’t lived until you’ve been owned by a helpful kitty. He's also a calm kitty and will take anything with stride, he gets along well with his cat-mates in his room, and will sometimes even provide a little grooming session here and there. He’s ready to meet you! Fly yourself on over here and fall for this friendly feline!

Quite the character, Holly is easy to correct and takes treats and toys so gently. She loves play time, especially with people. When you get her excited, Holly barks to let you know just how much she loves to play! Did we mention one of her favorite activities is hunting and eating flies? Yep, you will never be bothered by an insect again! Holly doesn't take long to warm up and she is very loving. Holly does well with large dogs.

Lost & Found
· Be persistent!! Often times, well meaning people will keep a lost pet at their house for an extended period before turning the dog or cat into the animal shelter
· Come to the animal shelter. Only you can positively identify your pet. As much as we would like to help you, we cannot identify your animal over the phone.
Check the shelter at least every 72 hours. Unlicensed, stray dogs and cats are only required to be held for five days before they can be adopted or euthanized.
· Make up fliers with your pet’s description (include a picture if possible). List sex, color, tags, collars or distinguishing characteristics, the area lost, and your information for someone to contact you. Post the notices on supermarket bulletin boards, Animal Service’s Lost and Found Board, with other humane organizations, schools, and nearby neighbors.
· If you have recently moved, leave notices with neighbors in both your old and new neighborhoods, and check with agencies in that area.
· If you have lost a purebred dog, check with the ARF volunteers for current Breed Rescue Clubs.
· Make sure that all current and correct information is on file for your dog’s license and rabies tags. If your animal has been micro chipped, make sure the company has your current information.
· Check your neighborhood frequently on foot. Be sure to check at night. If your pet is in an area it is not familiar with, it will only come out when it is quiet.
