We have some special friends for our Pets of the Week today! First, in line we have Xena, a two-year-old Redbone Coonhound who needs an active lifestyle; second is Sammy, a quiet, shy kitty who is nine-years-old and needs patient people, and lastly (but certainly not least) is a very proud pigeon named Sir Harold the Great!
Meet Xena, a two-year-old Redbone Coonhound mix who is looking for an active family! Xena was transferred to us from a shelter in Oklahoma and is now waiting as patiently as she can for new friends, and will do best in an adult-only home. Xena is an active breed of dog who has a lot of energy! She is getting extra enrichment here at Larimer Humane Society in order to keep her busy. Xena would love to go on long walks, hikes, or runs with her new family, as well a go to the dog park. High energy dog breeds often enjoy puzzles and intricate toys that stimulate their mind and help them release excitement! Swing by and take Xena on a walk today! Her adoption fee may be $175, but her love is priceless.
Sammy is a nine-year-old female cat who needs a quiet home! She is sweet and cute, but also very shy. Sammy is very easily overstimulated and would do best with a consistent routine and adult owners! Sammy was surrendered for house-soiling, a behavior that consists of marking and not using the litter box. However, when this occurs, a cat is trying to tell you that either they are sick or do not like something! In Sammy’s case, a move, a new dog, and a new family member were too much for her, and she came to us to find a home better suited to her needs and personality. She gets along with other cats and with patient humans, but will need some time to adjust to her new home! Come meet this sweet girl today; she can be yours for $25!
Say hello to Sir Harold the Great, a white one-year-old pigeon! Sir Harold the Great wandered into the Embassy Suites last week, finding his way into a bellhop closet. He was just looking for a room! Unfortunately for Sir Harold, Embassy Suites has a strict “humans only” policy about who can book with them, and they called us to come rescue their lost little friend. Pigeons may not be commonly found in shelters, but they can actually make very good pets! They do well with other pigeons or with human companions and are emotional birds who can form strong bonds with those around them. Sir Harold the Great is here at Larimer Humane Society, just waiting for a kingdom to call his own! He can go home for $15.
