Jingle, top, is a sweet girl with deep orange/red fur. She likes affection, so don't be surprised when she sticks close. She would be a good companion. She is 5 to 7-years-old, spayed, and up-to-date on vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $45.

Socks, bottom, is a puppy that is a little bundle of energy. He likes to play and run. Once he runs his wiggles out, he likes to learn new tricks and would be good for a 4-H family that will do obedience training with him. She is a 6-month-old, male Beagle mix that currently weighs 26 pounds. He is neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations. His adoption fee is $45. Socks will not be placed in a home with children under 12 years of age. He will need to continue obedience training.
