Eight-year-old Sherman was surrendered for no fault of his own in July. His former family tells us that he is friendly and gets along well with kids and other cats.
Eve is a sweet, loving and friendly kitty. She is house trained and spayed, so we know she used to be someone's cat.

Clarence is an energetic, fun-loving guy with a beautiful shiny coat. He knows "sit" and "paw" and is proud to show off his tricks.
Chloe is house trained, leash trained and active. She loves the attention of people -- adults and children older than 15 years, but is not recommended for anyone with younger children.
Atlas is a friendly guy, but is not fond of cats and can't go to a home that has them.
Diamond is friendly, but very strong, so only families with older children will be considered. Diamond loves to run and play and needs lots of daily exercise.

Sequoia is a friendly, calm, sweet, and a little bit shy. He also likes to be petted.
Candy gets along well with other cats so would do well as a second or third cat. She is a bit shy at first but quickly warms up and likes to be petted.
Maximus is a very friendly dog around people, but is also strong, so older children would be the best fit for him.
