Adopt a Friend!

from the Lakefield Animal Welfare Society


“Cannon” is a mature boy. He seems shy at first but does warm up. He is very vocal along with a bit of “cattitude” and probably would do best as the only pet in the home.  Have a few hours to spare?  Reliable Volunteers are needed for  the  LAWS Thrift Store. Weekly shift or occasional 3 hr Saturday, the choice is yours. Applications are on website & at the shelter.
