Shelby, black Lab

Meet Shelby, a 45-pound female black Lab mix. Shelby has been at Beaumont Animal Care since Oct. 24, and shelter staff wish to see her adopted soon. She is a happy dog, gets along with her kennel mates, and walks like a sweet lady on a leash. Shelby is not a big fan of cats but loves to be with people, especially when they have an endless supply of toys for her. She has kind, gentle behavior. To learn more about Shelby, visit her at Beaumont Animal Care, 1884 Pine St., Beaumont, ID No. 31595.

Be a Santa to a Senior

While many seniors enjoy being able to live independently, the holidays can be a difficult time for those who are unable to spend them with friends or loved ones and isolated seniors are at great risk for loneliness, anxiety and depression.

This is why the local Home Instead Senior Care office serving Jefferson, Orange, and Hardin counties is inviting the community to come together to bring some comfort and holiday cheer to area seniors through its Be a Santa to a Senior program.
