Pet of the Week
photo: towncrier

HI, my name is Bernie. It's Christmas time. I'm lonely, I'm homeless, I'm handsome -- an orange and white longhair neutered male. That's it, folks. That's me: just the facts, straight to the point, short on flowery phrases, long on purrs and hugs. You know you need me, come and get me, pretty please.

If you'd like to adopt a pet, call or stop by the Animal Shelter on the Bypass across from the post office. The shelter is open seven days a week, 11 a.m.- 2 p.m. Call 235-3141, e-mail, or visit the shelter's Web site at
