At the Shelter (12/18/14)
Meggie (62528) came to the shelter as a stray and is available for adoption now. She is obviously a shepherd mix and is approximately 4 months old. Meggie is very, very scared at the shelter. She is precious and wants to be loved so badly. Finn (29392) was surrendered to the shelter by his owner. He is a sweet, gentle soul and only one year old. Finn would make a good winter partner during these cold days ahead. Fletcher (62511) came to the shelter as a stray on 12/01. He is a big guy but friendly as ever. He is neutered but he is heartworm positive. Please call the shelter with all questions about Fletcher at 731-285-4889.
