Say hi to our pets of the week! Meet Misty, a five-year-old female who is our longest term resident who would like to go home soon, Garfield, a two-year-old cream-and-orange colored male cat who has some special requirements, and Cookie, a two-year-old female Guinea pig who is just waiting to meet her perfect family.
If you think you’ve seen Misty before, it’s because you have! Misty has been at the shelter since mid-December and has been previously featured on Pets of the Week. Well, our five-year-old tuxedo cat is still waiting for her forever home! Misty was surrendered for hissing and house-soiling after a new puppy was introduced to her household. It turns out, that while Missy loves people and enjoys lazing about and taking cat naps in laps, she does not enjoy the company of other animals, especially dogs. Misty can become easily stressed around other animals and she would like a quiet home! This cute little tuxedo girl likes to greet you, talk to you, and ask for pets. She would love to be yours! Do you think you can give her a great home? Her adoption fee has been waived, so come get her today!
Meet Garfield! Garfield is a two-year-old orange-and-cream male cat who has a personality bigger than he is! If you come to visit Garfield, he will be sure to “talk” to you the whole time! Garfield can become easily over stimulated, so he will need a home without dogs and cats and without young children. In fact, Garfield has been enrolled in our “Pets Needing Patience” program, where we help fearful and over stimulated cats feel safe and secure in their environment! He may do well as a working cat or mouser for someone who lives outside city limits. Do you have the perfect nap spot for Garfield to lie in? Swing by the shelter to see him today! He can be yours for $25.
Cookie is a two-year-old female Guinea pig who is mostly white, but her black and brown markings make it look like she is wearing pants! If a cat or a dog is too much of a commitment, consider adopting a small mammal! Guinea pigs can live to be seven or eight years old, so Cookie has plenty of life to live with her new family. These little guys are social animals and do better with a friend or a group of other Guinea pigs, although it’s not required for their well-being. If you’re looking for a little pet who will bond with you, consider taking Cookie home! She can be yours for $10.
