Sienna the chocolate lab

Sienna is a young adult female chocolate lab and weighs about 45 pounds. Sienna has been at the shelter since late October and is such a sweet dog that we cannot believe no one has adopted her. She has a wonderful personality, loves the water and enjoys play-time. She is curious and gets along with other dogs. She is tired of the cold concrete floor and yearns for a soft bed. Sienna would be the perfect dog for a hike or camping, or long walks on the beach. If you are looking for love and a loyal companion, Sienna is waiting for you!

Hi, Guys! Aren’t my eyes hypnotizing? My name is Zorro and I’m a shepherd/Lab mix who is about 2 years old. I love to play with toys and run around with my doggie friends. I’d love a home with children, but I can be a little clumsy, so bigger kids would be best. If you are interested in me, please contact BAS and ask for me Zorro, No. 27896.

Sasha should really be named chatty Kathy. When you walk into the cat room at the shelter, Sasha is always the first to say hello. She just loves to have conversations with BAS staff and even chirps. She’s a young, beautiful tabby cat around 8 months old and has big bright yellow eyes. Take a look at her super long tail; it is rather bushy and has really cool stripes on it. Please stop by the shelter and fill out an adoption application. The cost to adopt her is $30, and she is fully vaccinated and ready to go home with you.
