PETS OF THE WEEK

 

Emerald

A home without a cat is just a house…..or so I have been told! My name is Emerald and I am on the hunt for a new home. I guess I had a home at some point, but I don’t remember it. I came to the shelter as a stray and I was never claimed. So I am free and clear to go to a new home. I am about a year old and I have all of my vaccinations, I have a microchip, and I have been spayed. Don’t you think this pretty little tabby girl could be a good companion for you? I think I would!!

 

Rocky

Heelllooooo! The name is Rocky! I am a one-year-old beagle mix! My family brought me to the shelter because they felt that I needed more space than what they had to offer! So here we go, looking for a new home and family. I have all of my vaccinations, I am heartworm negative, I have a microchip, and I have been neutered. I am a friendly and very active boy. I would do best in a home where there were lots of outdoor fun times with the family. Say maybe someone in the family is a jogger! Well that sounds just great to me! A good run everyday is good for everyone!!
