Pets of the Week @ the animal shelter


Cat of the week

Timberwolf is a beautiful and affectionate brown tabby. He is a very big boy and might be a Maine Coon Mix. He loves to be held and carried around. He has long hair and will need to be brushed every two or three days. He is about a year old.

Dog of the week

Skeeter has soulful eyes and a beautiful face that will melt your heart. Skeeter is very sweet and likes to follow you everywhere you go. She’s been at the shelter a long time and is losing weight and getting depressed. Her previous owner gave her up because she didn’t get along with their other dogs, but she seems fine with most of the other dogs at the shelter. She is also good with older children. She is about two years old and has already been spayed. She has medium length fur that will need to be brushed about once per week.
