Adopt-a-pet: Olive and Jack-jack


Olive is a 2-year-old unaltered, female Terrier. Handlers say she would enjoy being a part of a family, gets along well with other dogs and likes to take walks. Jack-jack is a 5-year-old neutered, male, domestic long hair/Maine Coon mix. Handlers say he is a typical big orange tabby and would do best in a mature, quiet home.
