Jenna is just shy of 3 months old, and has been spayed. This kit­ten was just one day old when she, her lit­ter­mates and their mom were brought into the shel­ter. PALS res­cued them all just a few days later, and they’ve grown into feisty, play­ful and lov­ing kit­tens.

Jenna is def­i­nitely the ad­ven­tur­ous one of the lit­ter. She’s al­ways first to check out new toys and the first to come up and meet new peo­ple. Jenna’s al­ways in the mid­dle of what­ever is go­ing on with her sib­lings, too, whether it’s rough­hous­ing with each other or curl­ing up and tak­ing long af­ter­noon naps to­gether. When she’s not hang­ing out with her brother and sis­ters, Jenna loves get­ting lots of one-on-one at­ten­tion from our vol­un­teers. She’s al­ways happy to show her ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the love with a loud purr and some chin nuz­zling. If you’re in­ter­ested in giv­ing her a for­ever home, come in and meet her!

For more in­for­ma­tion, call PALS at 209-224-0354. To meet other cats and dogs avail­able for adop­tion, stop by the PALS Adop­tion Cen­ter at 1405 W. Ket­tle­man Lane, next to the Lodi An­i­mal Shel­ter. Cen­ter hours are Tues­day to Satur­day, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and closed Sun­day and Mon­day.

••• Twelve-year-old Smokey was left aban­doned in the drive­way at An­i­mal Friends Con­nec­tion. You’d never guess from his man­ners — he is a per­fect house­guest, ac­cord­ing to his fos­ters. He quickly learned how to use the doggy door and seems to be fully house-trained.

Smokey gets along great with all of the dogs in his fos­ter home; we are not sure how he is with cats. He ab­so­lutely adores peo­ple. Be­cause of his age, we feel he would do best in a home with no chil­dren or older chil­dren. Smokey is def­i­nitely a lap dog and loves to snug­gle. He would pre­fer some­one who can be home with him, pos­si­bly a re­tired cou­ple, or some­one who works from home.

He is ready and ex­cited for the next chap­ter in his life, and look­ing for the per­fect lap to snug­gle in. Do you have that lap?

An­i­mal Friends Con­nec­tion is a Lodi non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to help­ing com­pan­ion an­i­mals since 1990. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 209-365-0535. To view other dogs and cats avail­able for adop­tion, visit the sanc­tu­ary at 933 S. Chero­kee Lane, Lodi, or visit

Sanc­tu­ary hours are from noon to 6 p.m. Mon­day through Fri­day and from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on week­ends.

Come join the Walk N Wag pro­gram at 9 a.m. Satur­day and Sun­day, or any time through­out the week. Vol­un­teer walk­ers take dogs on a one-mile loop around the sanc­tu­ary. The dogs love it! If you can’t adopt or fos­ter, this is a great way to par­tic­i­pate, vol­un­teer to make a dif­fer­ence in the life of our dogs.

••• Kelsey was skin and bones when he was res­cued from the streets. He’s bat­tle-scarred, but the curly left ear and miss­ing teeth give him char­ac­ter! The vet­eri­nar­ian es­ti­mated Kelsey to be close to 12 years old. Once flea treat­ment, de­wormer, vac­cines, qual­ity food and love were given, he be­gan to thrive.

Kelsey is highly al­ler­gic to fleas, so flea treat­ment is re­quired and must be used on a con­tin­u­ous ba­sis if he will be liv­ing with dogs or cats who go in and out (Kelsey is a strictly in­door-only cat). The al­lergy causes him to lose his fur.

Kelsey is a ver­bal guy when he’s hun­gry, and with only two teeth, he should eat wet food to en­sure he gets enough. He loves scratch­ing on his scratch­ing post and is a laid­back, calm kitty. He doesn’t like be­ing alone too much and will fol­low you around un­til you sit down; then he’ll lay down right next to you.

Kelsey will be hap­pi­est in a quiet home where he’ll re­ceive lots of at­ten­tion. He will tol­er­ate other well-be­haved pets, and en­joys re­spect­ful chil­dren who will pet him but won’t pick him up or carry him around. He may have some nor­mal, mild arthri­tis be­gin­ning in his back legs but that doesn’t slow him down. He jumps to the bed and the couch, but can’t reach coun­ters or high ledges.

Kelsey is neutered, vac­ci­nated, mi­crochipped, de­wormed, de­flead and FeLV/FIV neg­a­tive.
