Dog of the Week – ABEL

Age: 1½ years

Color: Black & White

Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier Mix

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $160

You wouldn’t happen to have a New Year’s Resolution to get fit, would you? Because if you do, why don’t you adopt a dog to be your coach and your motivator? Abel would be the perfect man for the job and here’s why: for starters, he’s a sweet young boy with a ton of energy! He’ll get you up off the couch to go for a long walk, a run or a hike…it doesn’t matter to him as long as you’re together. Abel has never met a person he doesn’t like and that includes children. He does prefer to be the only fitness coach, ahem pet, in your life, but he promises he’ll have plenty of love to go around for everyone in the family.

Cat of the Week – CHARLIE

Age: 5 years

Color: Black & Brown Tabby

Are you looking for an awesome family pet? A cat that’s personable, playful and cheerful? Then we’d like to introduce you to Charlie!

He’s playful and loves frolicking with all sorts of toys as well as gazing out the window and sunbathing. We hope you rush to the phone to call Charlie’s foster family at 443-528-6173.

Small Critter of the Week – AMARYLLIS

Age: 10 months

Color: Black & Brown

Breed: Rabbit

Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: $25

Do you believe in love at first sight? I do and I hope you’ll fall in love with my picture and then come to the shelter to meet me! Hey everyone, I’m Amaryllis, an adorable little bunny rabbit who’s in search of someone who will give me a home and make me a part of the family. I’m just 10 months old and I’ve got my whole life ahead of me to spend with you. I love munching on my alfalfa hay and playing with toys, but the absolute best part of my day is when I get to stretch my legs outside my cage and explore. Just make sure you bunny-proof the room or have a safe enclosure for me to hop around in! Won’t you come and meet me today?
