“Ernest,” the Hemingway cat has been cleverly named in honor of his breed of cat. “Ernest” is about 13-14 weeks old. He is a black, white and brown Domestic Shorthair tabby cat that is very loving and gets along well with everyone, including dogs, cats and children of all ages. He is an owner-surrender that was reluctantly given up due to a move to a location where pets are not permitted. The former owner would like to find a loving forever home for this unique polydactyl feline (poly=many/dactyl=finger). Ernest Hemingway, the author, was once quoted as saying, “A cat has absolute emotional honesty; human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.” Come into the Shelter for your dose of “absolute emotional honesty” and adopt our Hemingway. “Ernest’s” ID number is A152689.
“Dempsey” is just the most adorable male, 13-week old, white and chocolate Boxer/Lab mix. He is named after the famous boxer and he has the energy and stamina of his namesake. He is also an owner-surrender, reluctantly returned because this precious puppy needs lots of time and attention to be taught “the ropes.” “Dempsey” will knock you out with his sweet face and hook you with his positive puppy attitude. Come in today and adopt our little fighter. He has already been neutered and has had some vaccinations, so hurry in and you can take him home, today! “Dempsey’s” ID number is A152606.
