When we get adopters in who are looking for longer-haired kitties, we often have to disappoint them because we do not have longer-haired felines for them to meet. But now we do!

Introducing the Fuzz Brothers: Bernard and Jackson. These guys are very handsome and “floofy.”

We do not know for sure that they are brothers but we think they might be. They were surrendered by the same person, who told us the kitties were wild, but they were only at the shelter a few days when we noticed how calm and affectionate they are.

Bernard is orange and white, and Jackson is a gray tabby with white accents. They both are still a little shy, but loved to be talked to and petted. Their age is guesstimated to be between 2 and 4 years old.

It can be tough sometimes for the shyer kitties to find homes, but we are hoping that someone who loves longer-haired kitties will come along and give them a chance. They would thrive in a quiet home and would be wonderful, loving kitty companions.

Volunteer orientation

The SPCHS is a volunteer-driven organization, and we are always looking for new volunteers. We have many volunteer opportunities, ranging from dog walking and cat cuddling to clerical and front desk staffing.

The next volunteer orientation is Saturday, Jan. 11, at the Shelter Annex building next door to the shelter at 330 Second Street NE in Long Beach. The orientation will start at 10 a.m. and run until about noon.

The orientation will include a review of the Volunteer Handbook, volunteer opportunities available, and a tour of the shelter. Volunteering is a great way to meet like-minded individuals and to feel you are doing something worthwhile.

Please do not bring your pets, except for service animals. You are welcome to bring food and drinks for yourself. Hope to see you Saturday!
