Pets of the Week February 27, 2012

She’s as elegant as a long-legged runway model, but she prances instead of strutting, and her gleaming coat conceals a tender girlish shyness she overcomes quickly when you hold out your hand. Precious is a spritely 7-month terrier mix beauty, and at only 12 lbs. she’s as streamlined as joy gets — she may still grow a little but her gentle, happy heart will always be her biggest feature. Precious was found stray, but she’s too playfully affectionate not to have known human love somewhere — she’s great with other dogs and mature kids, is working on her housetraining, and would make delightfully attentive companion to you and your family. Come meet a shining example of how elegance can be low maintenance and why sweetness is always in style — then pick up our Precious girl and hold her next to your heart.

Five-month old Allie was found wandering in Ware Shoals with her brother; she’s playful and curious, a hunting wonder who’ll entertain you with her antics and then report for a soft snuggle-purr-head rub, so you don’t feel neglected. Allie’s destined to be a small cat but her adoration for you and your kids is mighty — she likes other cats and dogs too. Come trace her ancestors’ stripes with your finger tip and revel in her softness, then surrender yourself for the prey that you and take her home to make you wildly happy.

The Greenwood Humane Society is a not-for-profit organization committed to the compassionate care and protection of animals.

Their purpose is to give sanctuary to abandoned, abused, and neglected animals, provide education to the public on responsible and humane pet ownership, encourage the public to spay and neuter their pets by providing low cost surgery, and encourage adoptions of those animals placed in their care.

Their adoption center is open Monday through Saturday 10:00am to 5:00pm est.
