Rory just can't stop watching and waiting for her new family! Is that you? Sweet Rory is our newest cat, and she really misses having a home to call her own. She dejectedly sits by the window looking out, watching everyone go by, hoping someone will fall in love with her. She is a bit skittish being in such a strange new environment- shelter life is a tough transition after living in a home- but she quickly comes around when you start to pet her. She even shoves her head in your hands for more attention! Rory is a 2 year old female domestic shorthair cat available for adoption today. We really want this wonderful girl to live the good life!

Lost & Found

tips on finding your lost pet…  

· 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.
