Pets of the Week August 24, 2015

This 2-year-old Amerian Staffordshire Terrier mix has gone from “rags to riches.” Mollie was found stray, malnourished, and very afraid. After arriving at the animal shelter she received the nurturing and nourishing she needed to feel well and get healthy. She quickly became staff favorite, returning the care she received with love and newfound trust. Now she takes rides with a staff member every day to get lunch and is walked regularly to work off the good food she enjoys. Besides meals and getting attention, her favorite activity is playing with toys. Tug-o-war is her go-to game and, although she has the strength to win each time, she teasingly allows her opponent to think he/she may have a chance. Miss Mollie has experienced a true makeover — inside and out — and is flourishing as a wonderfully fun and engaging canine companion ready to move into a new home and life.

Paul is a handsome gentleman cat who, at 8 yrs of age, has reached the stage of his life that his activity preference is lounging. He is at the shelter because his owner was too ill to care for him and he has seemingly acclimated to the idea of enjoying the rest of his life in different surroundings. Sharing space with cats of all ages, he is displaying a level of patience that is often not seen in cats, as he allows the younger kitties to play with his tail and run circles around him. He even tolerates playing dress up (don’t ask), and it’s often more the expression on his face that will have you smiling than the cute outfit he’s donning. Paul not only gets along with cats, he enjoys the company of well-behaved dogs as well. With football season coming up, he is trained and ready to help you cheer on your favorite teams, all while lounging next to you on a comfy couch, of course.
