Pets of the Week September 15, 2014

She’s proof that sweet girls can be tons of fun; lovely 6-month-old Shepherd mix “Tessa” is packed with boisterous affection — pick her up and she’ll lean back to kiss you, put her down and she’ll sit and shake for a treat. (Give her a baby pool and she’ll take a flying leap into it. Yes, the lake would be heaven). Tessa was found stray; she’s smart, attentive, social, and radiantly healthy — a cooperative shelter citizen who enjoys other dogs and thrives on attention from humans of all sizes (an active family with school-age kids and a spacious yard would be perfect for her). Tessa would love some training, her potential’s as impressive as her attitude. Come see how becoming boundless energy can be; Tessa wants to hug you today.

Her ethereal beauty makes her look like a page from a cat calendar, but our lavishly long-haired 3-year-old “Purrsia” is real, and so is her abiding affection. She’ll pet your ankles with her pristine gray and white coat forever, a more elegant show of warmth you won’t find. Purrsia was found stray with 2 angora-soft sons; she keeps a tidy box, is an immaculate groomer, and would make an exquisite indoor pet — calm and gentle enough for your young ones. (She gets along fine with other felines but says “no thanks” to dogs.) Come see a cat-vision come to life, and take her home to comfort you and yours.

Adoption fees waived for the pets of the week through Saturday!
