First, meet Nemo, a 20-pound, 6-year-old, long-haired dachshund mix with oodles of personality in a small package. Cute and curious, he will deliver a dose of adventure to your life. Nemo is pretty sure he is the star in the film called life and he adores being the center of attention. With his larger-than-life point of view, we suggest a meet and greet with the whole family. You can give this story a happy-ever-after ending by helping to find Nemo a forever home.

And then there is Elvis, our hunk, a hunk of kitty love. This 6-month-old tabby and white cat makes all the staff and volunteers swoon. The whole SHS crew is trying to find him a new place to dwell with a family that can’t help falling in love with him. His eyes beg, “Love me tender, love me sweet, never let me go. You have made my life complete, and I love you so.” Elvis is at the adoption center at Petsmart on Hwy 280. Go visit him there and help Elvis finally leave the building.

For more information, contact an adoption counselor by email or call 205-669-3916 ext. 2005. To see the large variety of adoptable cats and dogs at SHS, visit Tuesday through Saturday from 12-5:30 p.m. You can also follow SHS on Facebook and at
