MaciMaci Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer Mix Medium Adult Female - DEAF! LONG TIMER! Maci is a super friendly and playful girl but she also has her mellow side as well. Maci is listed as special needs because she is deaf but that does not stop her from enjoying life. She is dog friendly and will do best with a dog playmate of her own size and an owner that is willing and able to work with her by teaching her some sign language and be a good leader for her. Maci is HW negative, is up to date on her vaccinations and proper monthly preventatives and has been spayed. https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/35102364

THOMASThomas Domestic Short Hair/Tabby Mix Large SENIOR Male - Thomas’ Daddy passed away a few months ago, and all the household animals were brought to the shelter. Everyone else has already found new homes but Thomas is still here waiting his turn. What a sweet guy THOMAS is.! Thomas loves to play chase with the small dogs, and is very kind and gentle with the other cats in the foster home. He loves to be petted, but doesn't care to be picked up much. He is an indoor cat but loves to hang out by the doors so he can see what's going on outside. He doesn't mind staying in a large cage, and will walk into his crate on his own if he's going for a ride... all in all I'd say he's perfect. Thomas is neutered, micro-chipped, up to date on his vaccinations and flea control.. and is hoping the next home he is in.. will be his last. https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/33252590
