PETS OF THE WEEK

 

Abigail

Abby was brought to us as a kitten who was wondering the streets. She is a girl who loves her attention, and will grab you as you walk by. She is loving and playful but prefers to be the only cat. You ready for a one of a kind personality, here she is .

 

Tara

My name is Tara. I am a pretty black and white terrier mix that is about ten months old. I was rescued by a man who saw me on a crowded street downtown. He brought me to the shelter so I could wait for my family to find me. He kept checking on me while I waited. He even took me on medical foster when I was sick. Anyway I am all better now and I am ready for adoption. I have all of my vaccinations, I am heartworm negative, I have a microchip, and I have been spayed. I have been working on my doggie manners and leash walking skills. My leash walking skills have come a long way since I first arrived. By golly, I am a pretty good leash walker! I have already made a start on “sit” and “shake!” Maybe you can teach me some more commands! I would like that!
