Pets of the Week

It hasn’t stopped raining much lately in Johnson City, and while that may slow the efforts of volunteers to get dogs outside, it hasn’t dampened the spirits of these wonderful animals looking for a home.

They have hope. They have spunk. And they want to be a part of your life. Pay them a visit, and find a hopeful, spunky pet that can become a part of your home, your family and your life. It is so worth it.

This week’s Pets of the Week:

• Carly is a sweet and attentive Pug/Beagle mix who loves people, but is not too fond of small dogs and cats. An adult spayed female, she would make a great addition to your home and family, so pay her a visit!

• Melody is one of two gray Tabbies in the big cat room up front, and by far the friendlier of the two. While still a little apprehensive, this young adult domestic short hair is sweet enough to steal your heart on the first visit. She has been spayed, and is ready to go home with you!

• Nikko is a handsome, happy fella who loves to be with good people. An adult male chocolate Lab, he is very well-behaved, very friendly, and very sweet. He would make a wonderful addition to your home and family, and he’s sitting at the shelter waiting for you. Just stop by and pick him up.

• Cutie is just that, and then some. A seven-month-old, female, domestic medium hair with a beautiful gray and white coat, she loves to he held, touched, and spoken to. She is an easy friend to make, and goes completely limp in your arms. Trusting and sweet, you should pay her a visit soon!
