Pets of the Week October 15, 2012

Perla is Italian for “pearl” and this gem of a dog could not be more appropriately named. Her affection is endless and available to everyone; in fact, being in the company of others is proving out to be her life’s purpose. She’s the ultimate companion dog! This Hound/Retriever mix weighs 40 lbs and is full of playful energy balanced with calm submissiveness. She walks well on a leash and is very close to being house-trained. A quiet look from her soulful brown eyes and you instantly know that everything is going to be alright, and that is a gift that is priceless, just like her.

Tiny’s no longer tiny! He was so named because of his “teeniness” when he and his two siblings came to the shelter. Both his sister and brother have been adopted and now, at 5 months old, Tiny feels he’s ready to leave the nest. He has not had any exposure to the outside world and feels more comfortable hanging out inside where he can easily access the people of the house and their most comfortable furniture. One unique physical quality is his white-tipped tail. When it’s moving, it appears as though he’s sporting a flashlight for an appendage. Adopt Tiny and let him light up your life!

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.
