More than the monetary donations (which are vital), the food and blankets (which are life-saving), or the treats and toys (which are life-affirming), these animals need human contact. They need to know they can be loved, and they will be loved. Please visit and do your part in proving to these dogs and cats that there is still a life to be lived.
This week’s Pets of the Week:
• Honey is a young adult, spayed, female tabby who likes to play things low-key. A white and gray beauty, she is a little hesitant at first, but warms up quickly. She would be an amazing addition to an older household looking for companionship, more than play. Visit and see for yourself.
• Hero is deserving of his name. A handsome, strong, and sweet, adult, neutered male pitbull mix, he loves people and wants to come home with you. He is loving and house trained, and wants nothing more than to have a home. Take him home. Share it and make the most of it - you’ll be glad you did.
• Pippin is a four-year-old, white and black, neutered, male domestic short hair. He is almost too sweet, and cute as a button, and he needs a good place to live. He has been declawed, so he will need an inside home and the assurance of remaining so. If you have a good place for him to live, come let him know.
• Roxie loves people, and wants to tell you all about it. A brown boxer with a beautiful smile and an active lifestyle, she would be a wonderful dog for any young family looking for companionship. She is a cuddlebug, and her favorite thing is spending time with people who like to share affection. Let her show you on your next visit!
