CARA Puppy

Pet of the Week

Cat of the Week

Nypsey is a male domestic shorthair who is 8-9 years old. His "likes" include dogs, brushing, cuddling, and watching TV. Nypsey has the virus--but not the symptoms--of feline AIDS so he needs to be in a single cat household. If you are interested in adopting Nypsey, please click on the link below.

 Dog of the Week
Fortune is a female Lab mix who is about 2 years old. She loves humans and animals and would fit into any home. Fortune's guardian angel is WLBT news anchor, Marsha Thompson. If you are interested in adopting Fortune, please click on the link below.
