Welcome to Pets of the Week! Today we have some very special friends who will need special families. Say hello to Lonely, a six-year-old Chihuahua who needs a patient family who will work with her, Skippy John Jones, our nine-year-old and longest-term resident, who will need extra care and enrichment, and Spike, one of three roosters here who need homes outside of city limits!
Lonely is a six-year-old Chihuahua who is quite the opposite of a loner! This little girl loves the companionship of people and wants to be held and petted. However, she has not had a lot of life experience and can be fearful of new people, places, and things. She will need a patient family who is willing to show her love and teach her that new things aren’t scary! Because she is timid, it is best that Lonely goes to a home without young children. Once you earn Lonely’s trust, she will love to curl up on the couch with you and watch TV! Do you have the space in your home -- and your heart -- to adopt Lonely? Come by and meet her today! She can go home for $175.
Say “hey” to Skippy John Jones! This little guy has been with us since April, and he’s so sweet that we’re not entirely sure how he hasn’t found a home yet. Skippy John Jones loves to “talk” and is always waiting for your attention! This handsome guy has some extra energy and loves to play! He will do best in a home with no other cats and without young children, and Skippy will need to stay an indoor cat. This adorable kitty absolutely loves to hang out with people! He will return your affection with unconditional love, and curl up next to you for snoozes or wake you up for play time. Can Skippy John Jones be your next cuddle buddy? Swing by the shelter and hang out with him for a bit! Skippy’s adoption fee has been sponsored by a generous individual, and all he needs now is a loving home.
Our third featured friend this week is Spike, a seven-month-old rooster! Roosters and chickens are pretty unique and have their own personalities! Roosters can make good single pets, but will also do well with hens for companions. Chickens and roosters are intelligent birds that can bond with their people and enjoy their company. Roosters, unlike chickens, however, do need to live outside of city limits. Since Spike is young, he has plenty of love to give and life to live! His adoption fee has been waived, so all he needs now is you!
