Dog of the Week – SARABI

Age: 3 years

Color: Red

Breed: Chow Chow Mix

Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: $160

Hi there, my name is Sarabi, and I am a 3-year-old Chow Chow who came to the shelter as a stray. I am a big fluff ball of sweetness that adores people and gets along well with other dogs. I require regular brushing to keep my gorgeous long hair in tiptop shape. I would prefer a home with no small children because I’m not into the noise and commotion. If you’re looking for a great companion, come and meet me!


Cat of the Week – MERMAN

Age: 5 years

Color: Brown & White

Breed: Domestic Shorthair Mix

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $25

Hello there, my name is Merman and I was found and brought to the shelter by a Good Samaritan. Boy oh boy, am I a sweet kid! I will be the first one to run up to you when you enter the room. I love to talk and run figure eights between your legs. If you’re looking for an outgoing man, that’s me! You can meet me at Rescue Me! at Harford Mall, right next to Vision Works. I look forward to meeting you. (The adoption fee for all adult cats 7 months of age and older is $25 until the end of November.)

Fat Boy

Small Critter of the Week – FAT BOY

Age: 4 years

Color: Cream & Copper

Breed: Ferret

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $50

My name is Fat Boy and I’m a 4-year-old ferret who’s ready to meet my new family. I’m affectionate and I enjoy playtime with people. My mischievous and playful nature makes me a really entertaining companion! I am super smart and over time I might learn my name, learn to do some tricks and with some guidance, I can be litter box trained. Come and see me in the Critter Cottage.
