Sissy is a sassy 3-year-old calico cat who is ready to be the ultimate housecat in your home. She came to the shelter front-declawed and she is already spayed – so she’s ready for you to spoil her today!
Tito is approximately 3-years-old, and he is one of the most positive and upbeat dogs we’ve had in the station to date! Although he is so happy and seemingly carefree, we do know that being kenneled gives him anxiety, so he’ll need an understanding owner that won’t kennel him.
If you’re interested in bringing Tito home, contact Stephen Memorial Animal Shelter for more information. If you have other canine-companions, we suggest bringing them in for a “meet and greet” with Tito before you take him home with you. ????
She’s about 5 1/2 months old – and the only kitten remaining from strays that came in last season. But we don’t understand why she hasn’t found a home yet… because Maple is a sweet and curious kitten. Would you get a look at those eyes? She’s perfect!
Emma is a 10-month-old pit bull mix who came in as a stray a week ago. She gets along well with other dogs, but hasn’t been exposed to cats just yet.
She comes off as shy and timid at first, but we know she’ll warm up to the right person. Could that person be you? If so, stop in to Stephen Memorial Animal Shelter to see if she would be a good fit for your home. ???? SMAS is located at 2299 235th St in Oskaloosa, IA. They can be reached by phone at (641) 673-3991.
With the help of the Mahaska Humane Society, SMAS cares for over 1,000 animals per year. They provide animal control services for the City of Oskaloosa, rural Mahaska County, and smaller municipalities that have signed contracts with SMAS. In addition, they also work to educate the community about responsible pet ownership through multiple community outreach programs and through their “Spay the County” program in which they offer spay/neuter assistance to low-income families within Mahaska County, IA. Though we are a small shelter, serving a rural community, we pride ourselves on having a progressive view on animal sheltering as a field as well as the ways animal welfare organizations are a value to the community.
Lancelot is a 3-year-old polydactyl (which means he has extra toes!) who has been at Stephen Memorial Animal Shelter in Oskaloosa since October. Polydactyl’s are also known as “Hemingway Cats’. He’s super snuggly, already neutered, and he’d love to meet you. For more information, stop into the shelter, visit their website, or give them a call at 641-673-3991.
Say ‘Hello’ to KBOE’s newest Pet Of The Week: Phoenix! She’s a 6-month-old American Bulldog-Mastiff-Rottweiler mix currently available for adoption at Stephen Memorial Animal Shelter in Oskaloosa, Iowa. While it might take her a bit to overcome her shy nature, Phoenix is very loving, sweet, and we’re told that she does not mind cats.
Although her story seems sad for now, maybe one of our listeners can help to turn it around by giving her a fur-ever home! Stop into the shelter to learn more or give them a call at 641-673-6991.
KBOE’s Pet of the Week has been sponsored by Faux Paws Bakery in Pella, Iowa. Thanks to Faux Paws, the lucky family who ends up adopting sweet little Phoenix will ALSO receive a $10 Faux Paws Certificate. ????????
