Here is a doggie who needs a new, good home. Right now Bo is owned by my coworker who has a pig farm (and is kept outdoors). She is current on all shots and has been fixed, but they say Bo doesn't do well with the pigs (barks at them a lot, etc.), but is a very nice pup. She will be 1 year old on Dec 2.
If people had questions they could for sure contact Andrea via email at andreab97[at] and she has offered to get a hold of Melanie if they wanted more information.

Cats needing a Home

A family left two cats on the doorstep of Cedar Valley Vet Center at 506 W. 1st St. in Cedar Falls. A note attached said the family did not have the money to feed them, neuter them or have their shots. They are asking that a good home be found for them. There is a solid black male and a black and white female. The clinic neutered them. Both are friendly. Please call or stop by to see them if you are interested. They are very pretty,well behaved pets.
