Pets of the month

Chuckles is a big girl with lots of love. She is scared of dogs so a house without dogs is best. She does well with other respectful felines. She's a hunter and would love a place where she can play and hunt mice. She spends much of her days napping and cuddling. Chuckles is good with folks of all ages and enjoys the company of guests. Come see this charming kitty. For information, call CASA at 360-387-1902 or visit the shelter at 198, Can Ku Road, Camano Island.

Jake is a silly, energetic 1-year-old mixed breed cattle dog that’s looking for an active family to share all of life’s adventures. He has strong Heeler instincts, so an experienced owner willing to put him through some “good manners training” is highly recommended. Jake loves people, but doesn’t know his own strength and has a tendency to jump up and “bop” you in the face when he greets you, so he will need a home with children 12 and older. Jake has done well with other dogs, so be sure to bring yours along (if you have one) for a meet and greet. If you have the time (and space) for a bouncy, energetic breed, hurry into The NOAH Center at 31300, Brandstrom Road, Stanwood, or call 360-629-7055.
