Our weekly spotlight on a dog or cat looking for a forever home.
Meet Paris, a one-year-old domestic shorthair cat ready for adoption at the Kendall County Animal Control shelter in Yorkville. Paris was a stray, and her front paws are declawed. She's up to date on all shots. Paris has been at the shelter for about three weeks. Warden Anna Payton described her as a "diva," meaning she likes affection on her terms. Payton said she wouldn't recommend Paris to a home with small children, since the cat may be terrified of them. But she's friendly and kind and loves to be scratched, as you'll see in the video. For information on adopting Paris, or any of the other animals at the shelter, call 630-553-9256.

This shorthair cat was found and rescued after being caught in a live trap, according to Kendall County Animal Control Warden Christine Johnson. Despite that, she's incredibly sweet and friendly.
This week, we're introducting you to Peggy, a two-year-old shorthair currently living at the Kendall County Animal Control Shelter in Yorkville. Peggy was rescued after getting caught in a live trap, according to Warden Christine Johnson, which is how her nose was injured, and why she's missing claws from her front paws—she tried to dig her way free. She was found by a creek, Johnson said, sopping wet. Despite all that, Peggy is sweet and friendly. She's been spayed, and is up to date on her shots. She was born with one yellow eye and one blue eye as well, giving her a unique look. For information on adopting Peggy, or any of the other animals at the shelter, call 630-553-9256.

This two-year-old Hound/Beagle mix was adopted from the Kendall County Animal Control Shelter, but returned shortly thereafter.
Copper is looking for a home. Again. This adorable Hound/Beagle mix was abandoned, and found by the staff of the Kendall County Animal Control Shelter in Yorkville on Feb. 15. He's extremely friendly—if you come to the shelter, Copper's usually hanging out in the front office with Warden Christine Johnson. Johnson's son took Copper in last week, but according to shelter staff, the arrangement didn't work out. ("He does have a loud bark, and the neighbors were complaining," said Tech Forrest Duvick.) So Copper's back at the shelter, looking for someone to take him home. Copper is neutered and microchipped. He's had his rabies and distemper shots, and gets along with other dogs. To adopt Copper (or any of the animals at the shelter), call …
