Catnis, the Maltese-mix and the cattle dog (actually a Catahoula) Smiley have been spoken for.

That leaves Peeta, the brown and white male King Charles-mix (right), and Rue, the small female Chihuahua-mix (below).

For days, the community and animal control tried to capture three of them, (not Smiley) from Highway 243. Patience from our Hill community finally won out. They are now safe. Look for the full story in our next newsletter.

They both are very loving, good with other animals and absolutely thankful to sit in a human’s lap and be loved.

They can be adopted separately.


Also available is a  male Lab-mix who is good with children.

ARF has many animals on our website in assisted adoption, also.

ARF has many cats available for adoption or fostering.
