Pet of the Week

My people had to move and left me behind. It’s not my fault — I’m a good girl. My name is Lily, and I am an 8-year-old, spayed, domestic white cat. I am very loving, but don’t like noises or a lot of people coming and going, so I need a quiet home.

To adopt a pet, call or stop by the animal shelter across from the city’s Public Works Department off the Sterling Highway. The shelter is open from noon-5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, call 235-3141.
