PETS OF THE WEEK

 

Audi

Hey! Hi! Hello! I am Audi! I am a two-year-old retriever/lab mix that is looking for a new home. I had a home, but my owner’s health reached a point that she could not keep me any longer. I was sad to leave, but I know the folks at the shelter will do their best to find me a great new home. So far I have all of my vaccinations, I am heartworm negative, I have a microchip, and I have been neutered. I am an active kind of guy that would love to be your running or jogging partner! Also today when we were taking pictures someone threw a tennis ball and boy I zeroed in on it! I think I can probably play fetch!! Come out and give me a try at running with you or playing fetch! It would be fun!!

 

Kitty

My name is Kitty. I am sitting here at the shelter looking back on my life. I have a lot to look back on, because I am fourteen years old! I enjoy looking out of the big windows and watching the birds hop around and people coming and going. I look at each one and try to decide if they are a cat person or a dog person. It’s hard to tell. Any who, I am hoping a cat person will walk in here and want to adopt me. I have all of my vaccinations, I have a microchip, and I have been spayed. I know at fourteen years old, it will take someone really special to want to include me in their home. Paws crossed they walk in today!
