Here for some gourd vibes? Well here’s the scoop: our boy Pumpkin is sweet as pie. He’s 12 years young and full of sugar and spice. He’s not a fan of sharing his patch with other cats, so he’ll have to be your one and only. He’s a big fan of naps, watching squash games on TV, and being an amazing friend. If you’re ready to carve out some time to meet him, call us and set up an appointment. Let’s get this guy into a new home for the holidays.

The animal shelter is located across from the Public Works Department off the Sterling Highway. The shelter’s business hours are noon-7 p.m. Tuesday, noon-5 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, and 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. Closed Mondays. For more information, call 907-235-3141.
