Featured Critter of the Week
FEATURED CRITTER OF THE WEEK
AGE: 10 yrs
BREED: Gray/Black Tabby
WEIGHT: 11 lbs
Bella is a talkative kitty who adores being petted and loved. This 10 year old beauty would like a companion who will spend lots of time brushing her and doting on her. Bella has tested positive for FIV (feline AIDS). The disease is only transmitted cat to cat. FIV is spread mainly through bite wounds or from infected mother to kitten. It is not transmitted to humans, dogs or other species. Cats with FIV can live long lives. It helps for them to have a "high quality" diet, a stress free home life and regular visits to the veterinarian. She would do great in a home where she is the only cat, with a dog that likes cats, or in a home with another FIV cat! She’d love to have the company. If you would like to give Bella a happy forever, please come in and meet her. You will see how very special she is.

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.
