PETS OF THE WEEK

 

Lorelei

Hidy! I am Lorelei. I am a cute nine-month-old terrier mix. One of the first things you will notice about me is the scars on my back and sides. I don’t remember exactly what happened. The folks here think that some hot liquid was poured on my back and ran down my side. It doesn’t hurt now and physically I am just fine. While I have been here I have gotten all of my vaccinations, I was tested for heartworms, I got a microchip, and I have been spayed. My scars are not pretty. I am hoping my new family will look past my scars and just see the love in my eyes and the wag of my tail!

 

Pearl

Hello, my name is Pearl and I am a jewel!! Just wanted to add a little humor to my story! I came to the shelter as a stray. My family never came to claim me and now I am up for adoption. I am about a year old and I have all of my vaccinations, I have a microchip, and I have been spayed. Please come out for a visit. I bet you would fall in love with me!
