Raisen came to us with a history of being an outdoor stray kitty but to us it looks like she was always meant to be in a home! She likes to cozy on up in a comfy bed and dream about how good her life is now, no more cold nights that's for sure! She likes to talk so if you'd like a chatty companion she's the one for you. She does well with other kitties as long as she has a nice little spot to escape to when it's time for her to re-energize. She's definitely a love bug and would love to go home with you!

Meet miss thang, Roxy! Roxy has a very sweet personality once she warms up to you. Roxy was surrendered by her owner due to them moving overseas, she was unfortunately left behind with her Doberman buddy, Ramon. Since then, Ramon was lucky enough to find his forever home, sadly she has been left behind twice. She truly is a sweet heart. Any potential adopter must be willing to invest time into housebreaking her. Roxy is strong on the lead, so it is strongly recommended that Roxy be enrolled into a basic obedience course. She is awesome with kids too! Please share this post with your friends and family and help us find Roxy her forever too.

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.
