There’s a lot of attention and love given, and a lot of familiarity developed between the people and the animals, which makes for a great dynamic during my visits — I get to see which dog or cat has made an impression that week.
This week’s Pets of the Week:
• Holston is an older adult male Shepherd mix found on Holston Mountain Road by Animal Control. He is a very sweet old man who loves to be touched and held, and there has to be someone out there looking for him. If you know his owner, or if you have seen him in the past, please help the Shelter help him find his way home.
• Ellie and Red are beautiful girls in need of a good home. Ellie is an eight-week-old female Feist/Hound mix with a reddish-brown complexion, and Red is a two-year-old female Hound with the same coat. They are both very sweet and outgoing, and in desperate need of a good, loving home. Visit and take them home with you - it will be well worth your time!
• Delmar, Cooley, and Everett are three of the cutest kittens I believe you’ll ever see. All are six-week-old males, with Delmar being the orange and white one of the three. They are attentive and loving, and are sure to grow to be wonderful cats as they age. Pick them up tomorrow, and show them the love they deserve.
• Dante may look mean in his picture, but he’s anything but. Laid back, sweet, and very fond of petting and cuddling, he’s just the sort of fella you want to take home. A neutered adult male, he is ready to come home with you - all you have to do is ask.
You can visit the Elizabethton/Carter County Animal Shelter at 135 Sycamore Shoals Drive, Elizabethton, or call 423-547-6359.
