>> Meet Toby, an almost 4-year-old black mouth cur/ Lab mix weighing 71 pounds. He was transferred from another shelter, and we were not given any information about his background.

He is an affectionate and outgoing boy who likes to give kisses and lean up against you. He walks well on a leash. Toby is gentle and friendly with children and gets along with other dogs. >> Meet Toby, an almost 4-year-old black mouth cur/ Lab mix weighing 71 pounds.

>> This is Libby, a 1½-year-old domestic shorthair weighing 7 pounds. She is a confident cat who adapts well to new situations. She is easily crated and rides well in a car. Libby is outgoing and affectionate toward people — very happy in their company — but she is terrified of dogs and is not especially fond of cats. Libby is definitely a “people cat” who will enjoy the company of adults and children alike. >> This is Libby, a 1½-year-old domestic shorthair weighing 7 pounds.
