Pets of the Week February 5


Catherine, a 6- to 7-year-old female shah tzu/pomeranian mix, is a rescue as a severe neglect case. Her foster mom has given her the love and patience to trust a human again. She still has her moments where she becomes worried and fearful. She does not know how to walk on a leash, but has started to play. She is not housebroken, but does very well with pee pads, and always goes when outside. She will need routine grooming and the gentle hand of an experienced groomer. Adoption fee is $250.



Snowflake, a very young female domestic shorthair, is curious about whoever passes by her cage and will “chatter” until the person stops to pet her. She loves getting her head scratched.








George, a male domestic long hair, arrived at the shelter in horrific shape, having been found in a local car wash. He was so weak he could hardly stand. He is diabetic and after trial and error, his insulin levels are set and he’s doing great, but he needs two shots a day. He had major dental and mouth issues; he had several teeth pulled and few ulcers removed from his tongue and gums. George loves people. He loves being brushed, getting treats, and generally being around people. A home with no cats, or friendly cats, would be best for him; also, he’d probably be OK with a cat-friendly dog that doesn’t bother him.
