loving and permanent homes, and it is hoped that the “Pets of the Week”
highlight will help bring attention to all of the animals currently
housed at the Douglas County Animal Shelter.
Bey Bey #8563 is a regal-looking black and white female domestic short hair cat. This queenly feline holds her graceful long neck up when she looks over her dominion. A very sweet cat, she will make a wonderful lap warmer as fall and winter’s chill approaches.
Foxy #9215 is a beautiful and intelligent red and black Shepherd mix. This young non-spayed female has a luscious red, black and white coat and a sweet personality.

Dogs include pit bulls, pit bull mixes, Shepherd mixes, a purebred German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever mixes, Australian Shepherd mixes, Chihuahua mixes, Shih Tzu, Poodle mixes, Shar Pei mixes, Terrier mixes, Pug mixes and more.
