Callie, Liam, Shadow and Sunny are the featured pets of the week at Monroe County Animal Shelter.
Callie is a pretty, 3-year-old, calico girl who is friendly, vocal and so sweet. She came in as a stray and would love to be in her forever home.
Sunny is a 1-year-old, orange tabby who is feline immunodeficiency virus positive. He is sweet, playful and loves to zoom around his condo like a crazy cat. He adores toys and wants all the attention that you can offer. He seems to be fine with other cats.
Liam is a 3-year-old, buff, long-haired boy who is FIV positive. He is a quiet boy who prefers to stick to the sidelines and observe the world go by. He appears to have some mild allergies to fleas so the shelter suggests an indoor-only home with good flea control prescribed by a vet.
Shadow is a 2-year-old, beautiful, black, short-haired cat. He was brought in as a stray so we don’t know his history. Shadow is a lively boy who is FIV positive. He is friendly, loves affection and would make a perfect house shadow.
