PETS OF THE WEEK

 

Chester

Hey to you! My name is Chester! Let me tell you! I am really glad to be in the cat room at the shelter! I was a stray that was always on the lookout for food and shelter. It was a tough life! Some one actually took the time to pick me up and bring me to the shelter. She knew I was such a nice cat and I needed a family. I am about four years old and while I have been here I have gotten all of my vaccinations, I got a microchip, and I was neutered. I am looking forward to finding a family to love. I sure hope it happens soon!

 

Roman

OH, hi. I am Roman. I am a two-year-old Catahoula Leopard dog mix. You may remember seeing me on the Lost and Found pages on Facebook. Yea, I was pretty awesome at avoiding getting caught! As it turned out, I should have just hopped up in the deputy truck and come in to the shelter. Everything has been just great during my time here! In fact I am staying in the Dispatch office with my friend Kristian. After waiting my allotted time, I got all of my vaccinations, I was tested for heartworms, I have a microchip, and I have been neutered. In the dispatch office I meet lots of people every day both young and old and I have been playing with other dogs in the play yard. So I guess you could say I am fine with other dogs, adults, and kids! I am hoping to find my forever home soon, but I will always remember my special time in the dispatch office with the deputies and my friend Kristian!
