Roxy Hart

Roxy Hart
Roxy Heart is a sweet girl that will steal your heart to match the one she wears. Roxy is a beautiful dilute calico with an estimated birthdate of Jan. 13, 2019. Roxy enjoys snuggling on your lap or keeping your feet warm at night. She’s always up for a little attention, conversation and scratches on her head. And if you look close, you will see that she wears her heart on her side. Roxy’s foster mom reports that she is open to other cats but not too thrilled with dogs.

Adoption fees are $80 for kittens up to 6 months old and $60 for cats 7 months and older. The fee includes a FeLV/FIV test, spay or neuter, shots, deworming, and a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). Fees can be paid by cash or credit card.


A citizen brough Buster to the shelter on Jan. 7. Buster weighs a whopping 75 pounds and has an estimated birthdate of june 7, 2019. He is a bundle of fun wrapped in a gorgeous package. His striking brown eyes and impressive physique turn heads wherever he goes. Then comes the huge, adorably goofy, tongue-out grin, and you’re hooked.

Buster enjoys toys and plays with them the same way he takes treats–gently. At the top of Buster’s favorite things list is soaking up all the love he can get. His reaction to other dogs has been mixed, and he’s pretty sure cats are useless, so this hunk of love will likely thrive in a home as your only fur baby. Buster also doesn’t realize how big he is and can be a powerhouse, so it’s best this big guy goes to a home without children. Buster’s enthusiasm is infectious, and the family lucky enough to call him their own will reap the rewards of a lifetime of smiles.

The shelter’s adoption fees for dogs are as follows: shelter dogs, $150; prison dogs, $200; puppies, $250; popular pure-breeds, $400. Fees includes a Home Again microchip, shots, deworming, heartworm testing (if old enough), spay or neuter, and a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). All dogs that are adopted must leave with a county license at an additional cost of $17. The license fee is cash only. Adoption fees can be paid by credit card or cash.
