Dog of the Week – ITTIE

Age: 10 years

Color: White & Tan

Breed: Jack Russell/Chihuahua Mix

Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: $95

This sweet little girl is ittie-bitty, hence her name! Ittie is a mature dog who was found as a stray and brought to the shelter so that she could find her forever home. Content to just be held and snuggled, Ittie is a happy little lap-dog. She doesn’t like sharing her food or toys however, so at this time we’re recommending a home without any small children. Because of her older age and small bladder, Ittie also needs to go outside pretty frequently, so a home where someone is home most of the time would probably benefit her best. If you think Ittie would be a good fit for you and your family, stop by and see her!

Cat of the Week – SCOUT

Age: 7½ years

Color: Grey

Breed: Domestic Shorthair Mix

Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: $25 (until 9/3/12)

Scout here is a little older, but she prefers the term “mature”, because she’s certainly not old! Sure, she’s got a better head on her shoulders than those silly kittens, but don’t write her off just yet! Found as a stray, Scout has made the shelter her home for 5 months now, spending her days in the Free Roam Room, lounging in the sunlight or curling up in a bed. It’s hard to miss this striking grey lady when you walk in there, as she usually makes her presence known! If you’re interested in opening up your heart to a lovely older lady looking for a place to spend her golden years, please consider Scout. (P.S. All cats and kittens are reduced from $95 to just $25 until 9/3/12!)

Small Critter of the Week – DENNIS

Age: adult

Color: White

Breed: Rat

Gender: Male

Adoption Fee: $10

It seems hard to believe that he would be a stray, nevertheless, that’s how Dennis turned up at our door. Intelligent, clean and affectionate, rats make great pets, and Dennis is no exception! If you’re looking for a docile pocket pet or an easy starter pet for your children, then look no further than Dennis. If you’re interested in meeting with him, stop by our small animal room!
