Steamboat adoptable pets: Lily Pie the cat and Apollo the dog


Lily Pie is a sweet, 1-year-old, female, diluted calico cat who is ready for a mellow home to call her own. She is accustomed to living with other cats and would love a home where she can take long naps in the sunshine and watch birds out the window. She is silly and playful and has brains along with beauty as she is quickly figuring out the treat-dispensing puzzle enrichment toys Routt County Humane Society provides. Her favorites though are jingly balls, toy mice and feathers. This gem is a bit on the shy side but warms up and blossoms when given a little time and patience.


This handsome 65-pound, 4-year-old Blue Nose Pitbull is named Apollo, although he has a shortened nickname of Pauly from the RCHS staff. Though he looks like a tough guy, he’s really just a big goofy couch potato who loves to snuggle. Every morning, he likes to show off his favorite toy to everyone he sees and then chew on his Kong until he has ensured that every little speck of peanut butter has been eaten. He loves playing ball, going on long walks and eating snow along the way.

Apollo has had several chances at a new home, but none worked out for various reasons that affected his successful transition. This sweet boy is looking for someone who can consistently work with him and establish a solid relationship where he feels protected by his owner before bringing him into crowds and new social situations. He is the type of pup who would love to hang out at the house and go for walks around the block until he really settles into his new family’s life. It would be in Apollo’s best interest to be the only animal in the home, so he can be the main focus.
