Pets Of The Week: Golden Boy Bailey And Stunning, Radiant Calypso

Wednesday, May 22, 2013


Calypso is a tortie Persian. She is 10 years old and has been spayed. She arrived at the shelter on April 22 with matted fur that was “in horrible shape.”

Thus, Calypso received what’s known as the “lion cut” seen in her photo.

Shelter staff said the following about her: “Calypso is a precious, vibrant little girl who is gloriously radiant in her stunning tortie colors. She is a happy and friendly cat, enjoyed by the kennel staff.”

Come see Calypso at the shelter today and make her a loved member of your family.” Her ID number is A063116.



Big, beautiful, Golden Boy Bailey is waiting for that special person who will give him the loving home he so deserves.

Eight-year-old Bailey and his dog companion were abandoned in crates at the side of the road a day or two after they were posted on Craigslist.

They were brought to the shelter on April 24.

His friend has been adopted and her new owner would like to set up play dates with Bailey when he finds his forever home.

Bailey is very affectionate and loves company, whether going out for a walk, playing with his toys or just sitting in the play yard.

He has been through so much upheaval in such a short time; please help him to find a stable loving home!

Bailey is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations. His ID# is A063182.
