Pets of the Week

There are always plenty of animals at your local shelters in need of love and attention, and in desperate need of a home. I wish I had enough time and space to highlight all of them, but each week I get the opportunity to call attention to four prospective pets, and each week there are wonderful candidates for each spot.

This week’s Pets of the Week:

• Sidney is a gray and white, adult neutered male domestic long hair who loves to talk. Very curious and sweet, he would make a great companion for someone who loves the continual back-and-forth between pets and parents, and would make a wonderful cuddler as well. Visit with Sidney and take him home!

• Maxwell Smart is not your average secret agent, he’s a handsome three-to-four-year-old neutered male with a big heart. A long-haired orange tabby who is a still a little scared of his surroundings, Max has been neutered and is ready to be a part of a loving family.

• Rocco is a good-looking blonde with a lot going for him. A one-year-old male Beagle mix, he has a lot of energy and personality, and would be the perfect mid-sized dog to grow with a young family. Take him home and introduce him to your young son or daughter, and watch the years unfold.

• Jones is a young adult Feist mix with a great personality. A black, tan, and white, neutered male, he loves people and getting attention. If you like an active dog who will be there for you, and always keep up with your lifestyle, Jones could be the one for you. Pay him a visit and take him home.
