Steamboat adoptable pets: AJ the cat and Kirby the dog

AJ, 5, used to be an outdoor cat and was a good mouser at his last home. His previous owners had to sell their home and move AJ’s shelter, so he’s now at the Routt County Humane Society looking for a new place to call home. AJ is shy around new people, but warms up quickly. If you’re looking for a handsome, debonair and hardworking kitty, AJ is your guy.

Kirby is a 1 1/2-year-old Australian shepherd/retriever mix. He’s a very personable dog ready to share all of his love with a new family. Kirby is people- and dog-friendly and yes, his hair is naturally that wavy. He walks very nicely on a leash, loves playing with a tennis balls and when he flashes his smile, it makes everyone’s day. Kirby was found as a stray, but is an all-around great guy.
