Tyee’s on the mend
Tyree, an adult male pit bull terrier mix, came to the shelter with undiagnosed flea allergy issues that were left untreated for a long time, but is on the mend. His skin will finish healing and his hair will grow back over time. He’s friendly, but timid around new people. He is neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Pixil, an adult male domestic shorthair, was an outside cat prior to coming to the shelter, and at some point contracted FIV. (To learn more about FIV, go to www.aspca.org/pet-care/cat-care/feline-immunodeficiency-virus-fiv.) He is very friendly, in good health and has several years left. He is neutered, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.
The shelter is now full, so if you are interested in adopting, submit an application online at www.wacshelter.com. Dog adoption fees are $95 and cat adoption fees are $65 (both in cash).
