Pets of the Week July 15, 2013

If you had a dollar for every one of his handsome pale freckles you’d both be worth a million, but you can’t put a price on the warm, buoyant spirit of our exquisitely colored American Heeler/American Staffordshire terrier mix “Cash.” At 1 ½ years young he was a terrific match for the kids at Camp Good Dog, where he hugged and kissed without incident, always excited but ever gentle, trustworthy even with little ones. Cash enjoys other dogs but visibly thrives on your attention; he’s eager to please and a trainer’s dream. He can already sit, lay and shake hands for a treat, and proudly take your kids for a leash walk, too. (He also keeps his kennel really clean.) Cash’s perfect parent will give him exercise, enrichment, training and supervision and make sure he’s comfortable in his new home. Meet him and receive a kiss as soft as his coloring, then take him home and feel the heart-riches only our Cash can bestow.

There’s a constant look of earnest concern on her heart-shaped face, but then being a smoky orange Velcro-cat is a worrisome task, especially if staying close to you is as important as it is to 3-year-old Heidi. Heidi was found stray, a slender, perceptive slip of a girl, spilling over with quiet affection and softly insistent meow-sounds (she’s a willing conversationalist and she punctuates with purrs.) Gentle Heidi’s kind to other cats too, her talent for friendship’s universal; she’s already spayed and ready to go home today. See how close a cat can stay without actually sticking to you, how sincere a soft green gaze can feel, and how happy you’ll be to have Heidi watch over you every single day.

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.
