Casey - I love visiting my new friend Casey. I really enjoy visiting with all the animals at the shelter, but this little guy is special. There is just something about him that says "Love Me!" He is so calm, so sweet, gentle and loving. He is a senior-age golden cocker spaniel that was found roaming the streets. We have him on medication for an ear infection and he will be healthy soon. He already looks so much better. I think Casey would make a great cuddle bug for a less active household. Please come by the shelter today and see Casey; he needs someone to love him.

Emma - Miss Emma is a5-year-old sweet and affectionate, almost completely blind blue-eyed strawberry blonde flame-point Siamese cat. Because this little lady can only see shadow-like images, she is sensitive to sudden movements and loud noises. She is most at ease in small cave-like spaces made of pillows and blankets. She would love one of those half-dome cat beds where she would feel safe from unfamiliar objects and sounds.

Because of her inability to see, Emma should alwaysbe indoors. She loves company and snuggling next to you for hours, but she is unsure about being held. She would love a home without small children where she could get all the love and attention she deserves. Do you have a room in your heart and in your home for this loving special-needs kitty? Please come see her today.
