The 2-year-old pit bill mix is available at Kendall County Animal Control.
Meet Tobias. He's a pit bull mix that until recently had been a stray. For a few weeks, he's been at Kendall County Animal Control, where a trainer has been working with him on his sitting skills. He passed a staff temperment test, but Animal Control staff suggest he join a family without small kids given his strength and occasional powerful jumps. For more information about adopting him or another pet, call Animal Control at 630-553-9256.

This two-year-old cat was abandoned on a farm and is looking for a forever home.
Scooter has a little white mustache and black-and-white coloring resembling a tuxedo. He is waiting at Kendall County Animal Control to be adopted after being abandoned on a farm. "He's real affectionate," Warden Anna Payton said. "Normally, he's the first one to come up and rub against you." He plays well with another kitten at the shelter and, although Animal Control workers don't test cats with dogs, Payton believes he'd likely do well with a family that had a dog. Animal Control staff can offer advice for introducing new cats to a home with established pets. For more information about Scooter or other pets available for adoption, call Animal Control at 630-553-9256. Last week's featured pet, Autumn, was still available as of Friday …

The brindle pit bull female is still pretty energetic at age 1 or 2.
Autumn is a stray brindle pit bull with tons of energy. She would do well with a family who has children ages 10 or older, simply because of her age and size, Kendall County Animal Control Warden Anna Payton said. Autumn had at least one litter of puppies in the past but recently was spayed, micro-chipped and updated on her shots. For more information on adopting her or another pet, call Kendall County Animal Control at 630-553-9256.

Leaders say adoptions and community support have increased, but spending outpaced revenues at the Yorkville shelter in the fiscal year that ended Nov. 30.
The number of adoptions has increased at the Kendall County Animal Control shelter, but Animal Control spent more money than it received last fiscal year after years of building savings, leaders said. In November, Anne Vickery, now the county board vice-chairman, announced that the shelter was facing a crisis with animals being left tied up outside the facility and the department running a deficit for the first time in eight or nine years, according to county board meeting minutes. By the end of November, which also was the end of the county's fiscal year, Animal Control had seen its fund balance drop to $2,110, said Joe Trupiano, who creates financial reports for Animal Control on top of working as fiscal director for the county health …
