Ruby is a 3-year-old mama who is sure to keep her little ones in line. While she is the boss of her kennel, she is also a sweetheart who is the first to greet you. Ruby is food motivated and will do just about anything for a treat. She is gentle and loving and would make a perfect addition to your home. Ruby has been at APS since June due to an upper respiratory infection delaying her spay surgery, therefore delaying her adoptable status. She is now healthy and spayed and would happily join your forever home! Meet Ruby at APS and find out if she is a good fit for you.

Thanks to APS partner Two Men and a Truck, Ruby’s adoption fee, along with all cats and dogs at APS, is only $50 until the end of October. Stop in to take advantage of this great deal!
