Billy is a black-and-white male border collie/heeler mix available for adoption at Help for Homeless Pets. This unclaimed stray is 2 to 3 years old. He is good with kids, listens well to commands and is interested in going for car rides. He has good herding instincts and is housebroken. Billy needs to be the only pet in the home. He is neutered and current on vaccinations.

Other available animals include dogs and cats of many ages and sizes. Adult cat adoption costs $35, which includes shots and spaying or neutering.

To adopt Billy for $95, contact Help for Homeless Pets at 2910 Hannon Road, or call 896-1700. Hours are 1 to 6 p.m. daily.

The organization needs shredded paper, blankets, quilts, sheets, towels, pillowcases, bleach, laundry soap, dry and canned cat food, and cat and dog treats and toys. Monetary donations are also accepted. New volunteers are always welcome and can choose to help with a variety of tasks in many areas.

Help for Homeless Pets will host its annual feral and barn cat spay and neuter clinic on Wednesday, Feb. 19. Cost is $25 with a donation of pet food, treats or toys and includes rabies, distemper combo and worming. Discounts are available for larger feral cat colonies. Additionally, a vaccination and microchip clinic for previously spayed and neutered dogs and cats will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Rabies, dog parvo/distemper combo, cat distemper combo and dog bordatella cost $12 each. Microchipping costs $15. To make an appointment, call Kirsten, 208-0037, or Angie, 860-8735.
