Pets of the Week February 6, 2012


“Jubilant” is the word for this tug-of-war loving brindle boy — at almost 2 years old he’s the best of the American Staffordshire breed, brimming with affection and a massive play ethic, an effusive bundle of loving energy, all focused on YOU. Murphy was abandoned by his owners but his heart emerged unscathed; now he’ll happily be your outside dog — room to play is a must for him. Inside or out, this courageous youngster needs and deserves your caring attention. Our amiable Murphy enjoys the company of other dogs (beware, little dogs, he might romp right over you.) And his natural devotion to kids and family is yours for the asking. He’s not housetrained yet, but watch him cock his head when you give him instructions — he hangs on your every word and will strive to become your dream come true, just as surely as you’ll be his. Come see the stuff legendary loyalty is made of — ask for Murphy.


He’s a thoroughbred of a family cat — big, strong, intelligent and handsomer than heck, with a chiseled face, long, airy orange and white fur, and an outsized purr as exceptional as the rest of him; pick him up and he thrill-purrs high and low all at once, kind of harmonizing with himself, and certainly with you. After 10 years of tried and true loyalty, a divorce has landed this healthy, magnificent man-cat here, but Boo’s heart is as vast as the rest of him, and with eons of love left to give, he’s ready to move on. Gentleman Boo’s downy-soft fur is constantly clean, his box-keeping habits are admirable, he gets along fine with other cats, and he loves to talk — what better way to share daily wisdom? He’s already neutered and ready to go home with you today; don’t wait to claim the comfort of your exciting new friend named Boo.

She’s charmingly bashful at first, but when you’re already housetrained and beautifully mannered like Maci, there’s no reason to be shy! This gentle Lab/Hound mix is as tender-hearted as they come. At 4 years young Maci’s an ideal family dog — she’s adoring and trustworthy with kids, gets along fine with other pets, and is ready to show you her very own brand of loyalty. Maci’s easy to care for and already spayed; take her home with you today and shower her with attention, then bask in the abundant affection of this flawless this new friend.


Sink your fingers into his luxurious deep-pile coat and you’ll feel his purr — as quiet, strong, and gentle as the rest of him. Auto is a 3-year-old man of a cat; big, beautiful and laid back; he showed up at a home off Laurens Highway and turned himself in to the human world; life on the road didn’t suit him, his impeccable manners were going to waste and his extraordinary jewel-green eyes were unappreciated. Auto wants a home of his own where he can be your daily ally; and if kids, other cats, and/or dogs are included well so much the better. Come see what a clean companion a handsome man cat can be, and how soft a solid new friend can feel — especially one named Auto.

Pets of the Week January 25, 2012


This little rascal’s impeccably housetrained, and she can proudly “sit” and “shake” too — the tender loving education her early foster mother invested in her made Darla a pure delight of a family dog! She’s a fun, affectionate, almost one-year-old Doberman mix who exemplifies the loyal companion-dog breeding Dobie’s are known for. Gentle Darla’s black and tan beauty is only outshone by her happy disposition; she adores kids, loves other dogs and thinks cats are great, too. She’s easy to care for and civilized as can be; able to live in almost any home setting, as long as you give her the playtime she needs, and the human commitment she craves. Come meet this young paragon of home-and-family devotion; Darla’s all but done growing, however her heart knows no bounds, and she’s ready to give her unlimited love to you.


Mya is a 10-month-old brown tabby with hypnotic emerald green eyes, who is an affectionate friend to all. Mya can be coy at first, and after she’s had her fun teasing and flirting with you, she’ll quickly thank you for having fun with her. Mya was found as a formerly “lost” cat who wandered up to a home and that person kindly brought her to the animal shelter. It’s hard to believe such a cute, well-mannered and friendly cat would would find herself in such a situation! This cute little girl is spayed and ready to go home today!

She’s full of blonde ambition — to show you how perfectly housetrained she is, and how fun it is to “sit” and “shake” on command! The work is done with this intelligent three year old shepherd/retriever mix; Debbie’s a ladylike delight, her gentle affection, exquisite manners and cooperative, eager-to-learn spirit are tenderly impressive. She was surrendered by her owner and is already spayed, ready to grace your home as an inside or outside dog. Debbie loves people — she’s great with kids and is thrilled to walk on a leash; cats aren’t her favorite company, but she gets along well with most dogs. The lovely markings on her silky face only hint at the beauty inside. Come feel the loyal friendship Debbie’s ready to give, and see what a precious gift her blonde ambition can be.


Her personality is as effervescent as her name, and she has all the attributes that make her Maine Coon breed second only to the Persian in popularity. Bubbles is 2 years young — outgoing, talkative and intelligent, ready to greet you with a soft head butt, serenade you with a purr, and surround you gently with her silky tri-colored fur. She was found stray at Cambridge Academy spending time with the students; she loves kids, other pets too, and is a fastidious groomer and box-keeper. Bubbles will come to you instantly and capture you heart just as quickly; come see what a joy a young Maine Coon girl can be.

Pets of the Week – January 9, 2012


Antonio Banderas meet your match! Our dreamy Zorro’s a manly-muscular Chihuahua/Terrier mix who dances delightfully when you meet him, then brandishes his handsome grin and full body wag for good measure. Affectionate 3 1/2 year young Zorro was turned in by his owner; he’s fun, friendly, responsive, and forever happy. He adores being petted and held — but enjoys a good race around the yard or nice leash walk, too. Zorro loves the ladies but should be tested with other males dogs; his housetraining’s in progress, and his short haired coat makes him easy care (don’t let him hear he’s small.) Come unmask your future with this lovingly loyal little bandit today; Zorro will steal your heart and make you glad he did


She’s a little doll in every way, a shiny girl full of tender warmth and playful perfection. Although at 11 months old she’s just a kid herself, your little ones will love playing with her — she’ll shower them with snuggle-purrs, then find herself a quiet spot when her attention isn’t needed. Dixie was turned in because her owner was ill; now she’s here keeping her cage and box so clean they looked unused, no fooling. Dixie’s done growing and will always be small, she loves being indoors and out, gets along beautifully with other cats, and is ready to make your happy home even happier. If you want a little pixie with a heart that beats just for you, come meet our delightful little Dixie.
