Cat found in River Run

Picture1A cute and friendly cat has shown up on the doorstep of a family in the River Run neighborhood. While the kind family adores her and is making sure her belly stays full, they are hopeful she has an owner out there looking for her. Does she look familiar? Is this your cat?

If you are missing this cute kitty, know who she might belong to, or are looking to add a loving, young cat to your family, please contact Shanna at shannadfo@gmail.com.

Cornelius Animal Shelter pets of the week

Percy and Smokey

Percy and Smokey

The Cornelius Animal Shelter has pets available for adoption. For more information about these or other adoptable pets, please contact the Cornelius Police Department. The shelter is open Tuesday-Friday 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. It is also open on Saturdays from 9 a.m.-noon. Read on for more about this week’s pets.

This week the shelter would like to feature a new pup named Percy and a sweet new kitten named Smokey.

Percy is a 6-year-old miniature Poodle mix who recently arrived at the shelter. He has a soft, black coat and a cute curly tail. He has a sweet personality, is very curious and loves to explore. He does like to dig, so he needs a secure fence when outside. He is up to date on all his shots and ready for a forever home.

Smokey is a 2-year-old grey domestic short hair who recently arrived at the shelter. She has a soft, smoke grey coat and golden eyes. She is friendly and affectionate and would make a great family pet. Please stop by to meet her.

General information about the Cornelius Animal Shelter as well as a list of available animals can be found at http://www.cornelius.org/animalshelter. CAS is looking for volunteers. Information on how to get started volunteering is also available at the site.
