Pets of the Week

It was a beautiful, sunny day today - a bit hot for me, but a wonderful day for volunteers to visit the shelter and spend a little time with the animals.

There were quite a few young people at the shelter working with animals today, and it put a smile on my face. I was told that many were there to gather hours for school programs, or social clubs, and I thought that was a pretty good reason to appreciate schools and clubs. As long as young people are getting involved, I’m all for it!

This week’s Pets of the Week:

• Susan is a beautiful dog, and one of the sweetest girls you’ll ever meet at the shelter. She has a light, white coat, and the pinkness of her skin shows through all over her body —especially with her super-pink nose and belly, where her cuteness goes into overload. She is a two-year-old, female Pitbull mix, and is ready to go home with you now! Make it happen!

• Dorothy is a tri-color, adult, spayed female Calico  who loves to be held and touched. She is fun, sweet, happy, and ready to be adopted today, so swing by the shelter and visit with this beautiful domestic medium hair.

• Fred is a seven-year-old, male, tri-color Boxer mix, and he loves spending time with other dogs and people. A big fan of kids, he would love to go home with you and run and play. He has a happy demeanor and a wonderful smile, and if you have the chance to adopt him, I’d suggest you take it.

• Midnight is scared at the shelter. He loves when people come to see him, because his sister was just adopted and now he’s alone in his kennel and trying to figure out what’s next. He is an eight-week-old, male domestic short hair, and his black fur might be a shortcoming to his adoption - but it shouldn’t be. He deserves to go home with a wonderful family and feel the love he would surely give you back —make it happen!
