The adoption package is valued at $500.

This week's featured pets are long-timers at the shelter. They both have been neglected in the past and are deserving of a great new home!

Pet Bio

Name: Ellie Mae

ID #: 528953

Breed: Hound Mix

Sex: Spayed Female

Age: 1 years old

Color: Black & Tan

Comments: When Ellie Mae came to the shelter in February she was in very poor condition and extremely underweight. She also suffered from an eye condition which caused her lashes to rub against her eyes. She has had surgery to fix her eye problems and has gained 15 lbs. Ellie Mae loves kids and gets along great with other dogs and cats. She is an athletic girl and would do best in a home with a yard and an active family. Ellie Mae is also house trained and loves chew toys and bones. She is currently in a foster home so if you are interested in meeting her please send an email to:

Adoption Fee: Free (regularly $75) during Animal Services Construction Special!

Pet Bio

Name: Lucy

ID #: 524647

Breed: Domestic Short Hair

Sex: Spayed Female

Age: 3 years old

Color: Black

Comments: Lucy has been at the shelter since December. She came from a home with more than 70 cats so individual care and attention is something she is hoping to find in her new forever home! Lucy is affectionate and it's no surprise that she gets along well with other cats. She and her sister Vera are the only cats from her former home that are still at the shelter. It would be great if they could stay together. How about adopting two?
