The Humane Society of Ray County has a selection of adoptable cats and dogs at its shelter. Regular adoption days are each Saturday and Sunday from 1-3 p.m. at 200 S. College St. (the old county jail).
Adoption coordinator Shirley Saulter can answer questions and set up times for shelter visits at 816-776-8576 or 816-456-4976.
Adoption fees are $100 for dogs or $80 for cats, which includes spay/neutering, shots, tests and microchipping for dogs.
Information on these pets and others at the shelter is available at http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/MO513.html or at www.humanesocietyofraycounty.org.
Featured this week are roommates Squeaks and Lizzy, top to bottom, right, and Jock, a 2-year-old Schnauzer mix.
The cats were very timid when they came to the shelter, but have warmed up and like to be petted. Jock, about 16 pounds, is very friendly and likes children.
The Humane Society has a two-cats-for-the-price-of one special this weekend, July 13-14.
There are many cats needing good homes, a number of which came to the shelter together and share a room.
Only cats living in the same room qualify for the two-for-one special.
