Pups of the Week From the Animal Shelter
These two pups were having a blast playing the day I met them. They do not appear to be siblings and could easily be adopted into separate homes as they are not bonded. I received a warm welcome of paws and licks when I went into their play area.
Kohler is the female. She has a wider head than the other pup. Kohler was found as a stray on January 16, 2017. She is listed as a red Pit Bull. She likes to play fetch and lay in the grass. If you inquire about Kohler, please use her Pet Record #76099 or Form #224459.
Attilla is a male Lab mix. He was found as a stray on January 13, 2017. He is very friendly and seemed to be smiling inasmuch as a dog can smile of course. He has a happy-go-lucky disposition. If you inquire about Attilla, please use his Pet Record #76018 or Form #224455.

If you have recently lost a dog you can see the latest photos posted on the Animal Care and Adoption Center's Facebook page.
The animal shelter has three basic areas for dogs: The intake area where the kennels for the dogs are listed as "HP" which stands for Hold Pending. When dogs first arrive at the shelter, this is where they go first. The next area is the lower building that is attached to the adoption floor by a long hallway. The lower building is usually called the Stray building and the kennels are listed with a "S" in front of the numbered cage. In that building there are 15 stray kennels, with another five kennels set aside behind a gate often used for bite cases. Those kennels are marked as "OB." This area is often used for overflow when there aren't any bite cases. The area that most people see is the Adoption Floor. The kennels on the adoption floor are marked with a "D" in front of the cage number. That stands for Dog.
