POW-12-6-13Flash was adopted from us as a tiny kitten and lived the last few years very comfortably with his adopter. After his person passed away, none of the family members could keep him, so he came back to Operation Kindness. Flash is a very independent guy and enjoys roaming loose in our cat room.  He will make a wonderful companion, and he is looking for a family to call his own.

Flash and other pets are available for adoption from Operation Kindness, 3201 Earhart Drive, Carrollton. The no-kill shelter is open six days: Monday, 3-8 p.m.; closed Tuesday; Wednesday, 3-8 p.m.; Thursday, noon-8 p.m.; Friday, noon-5 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; and Sunday, noon-5 p.m. The cost is $110 for cats, $135 for kittens, $150 for dogs over 1 year, and $175 for puppies. The cost includes the spay/neuter surgery, microchipping, vaccinations, heartworm test for dogs, leukemia and FIV test for cats, and more. Those who adopt two pets at the same time receive a $20 discount.
