Save Our Strays has a cat and a dog available for adoption at its animal shelter, 1677 Post Road East:

Jack: This cat is a 2-year-old tuxedo boy who is up to date on all of his shots, has been neutered and is ready for a home. He weighs about 9 pounds but is very long and has a beautiful, shiny coat. He will do well in a home by himself or with other cats.

Sandy: Given up by her only owner, she is some sort of Shetland Sheepdog mix, although much smaller. She loves people and does not bark. She appears to be house trained, has been spayed and is up to date with all of her shots. She is about 2 years old and weighs 15 pounds.

The adoption fees are: adult cats, $100; kittens, $150; and all dogs, $250.
