Steamboat adoptable pets: Jinx the cat and Rusty the dog

Jinx is a male 1-year-old brown tabby cat who weighs 9 pounds. He is the coolest cat around and some would even say he’s the life of the party. He is super playful and exceptionally sweet. Jinx loves following people around to see what they’re doing and shows his love by rubbing all over them and chirping sweetly into their ear. An ideal night for him would be a movie marathon and snuggling with his people. Jinx would make a great mouser too if you need some help with rodent control.

Rusty is a male 2-year-old red heeler/shepherd mix weighing in at 54 pounds with ears that are always that cute. He is dog-friendly and enjoys catching snowballs and frolicking in meadows. Rusty is also cat-friendly, kid-friendly, crate-trained and loves a good snuggle on the couch. Fetch is a hobby of his and he always brings the ball right back to you. All Rusty needs is some basic training, stability and love. You surely won’t be disappointed with this smart, handsome guy. Come meet him.
