Pets of the Week July 1, 2013

She’s the Kate Middleton version of an American Staffordshire Terrier mix — athletic, well-mannered and perennially pleasing, with one major difference; Kate’s tall and our one-year-old Princess Bonnie’s forever petite, full grown at only 33 lovely lbs., a black and white beauty no bigger than medium. Bonnie’s a recent graduate of our Camp Good Dog, where she thrived on the attention of kids aged 8-14, learned to “sit” and “lie down,” showed how gracefully she could run laps around the yard, and offered the gift of her non-stop smile, luscious pink tongue and all. Bonnie adores the dogs in her play group but knows when to be patient; she’s calm and wise for a young girl, guided by her own kind heart. A warm home with room to run, some lively kids or another pet would be just her cup of tea. Bonnie’s here and ready for you to rub her royal belly, see how much joy her sovereign friendship will bring.

Picture two tiny Luna moths in an ebony sky and you’ll know her face, but for all her stunning, long-haired good looks her name’s sweetly down home — simply “Mama.” At only three, Mama’s already had a busy life, she was turned in with an accidental litter of kittens, too many pets to care for; now she’s with us and starting fresh. She’ll come when you call her, and answer you too, savoring every stroke of your gentle petting, and swishing her exquisite, feathery tail with pleasure to show you how much your caress means to her. For now our smallish girl’s a little shy about being held, but her thrill at your attention’s there; she’s also a fine shelter citizen — a tidy box keeper, and tolerant of other cats, (dogs too). Look into her luminous green eyes and see Mama’s future, one in which her pristine affection will be prized and returned, in a home as loving as yours.

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.
