Pets of the Week May 13, 2013

Except for the funny snort that escapes through his steadfast smile, our 6-year-old yellow Lab/mix Emerson’s a refined gentleman — calm, respectful, loving and solidly handsome, a champion leash-walker who’ll sit for a treat, take a graceful trot around the yard and kennel himself cooperatively upon request (he likes to keep his run clean, too.) Emerson was found stray, but he’s too well-raised not to have had a family; now he’s eager to show you how beautifully he behaves with kids big and small, and how well his warm attitude, diplomacy skills and big-guy sensitivity fit into your home. Emerson’s a trustworthy inside-outside kind of family member, a loyal friend who’ll never stop evolving, and a dream student for your every heart’s command — as HSOG’s Pet of the Month his adoption fee’s only $50, so low it’s a scandal. Visit the shelter and call Emerson to you and experience his joyful snort for yourself; you’ll never want to change his happy sound, only hear it each and every day.

She looks like a fluffy black bunny, but even sweeter is her expression of constant amazement, as if life were handing her a series of surprises, each more wondrous than the next (well the cat condos at Petsmart, where she’s waiting to meet you, are pretty darned stunning, at that.) Camilla’s just 11 months young — a softly outgoing, affectionate, attentive little girl; in our big cage here she followed us everywhere, always ready to exchange a face-rub for a pet, and a cozy purr for a snuggle. Camilla was found stray — a gentle street-child born with cat-magazine glamor; hold her to you and she’s all airy fur, but you’ll feel her weighty gratitude. Camilla’s clean and tidy and gets along fine with other cats; she promises to be a tender, patient friend to your kids and a constant companion to you, and show you, if possible, that she’s even prettier inside than out. Visit Camilla at Petsmart today and become the biggest, nicest surprise of her young life; you’ll feel so awed by her charm, your look of amazement may even rival hers.

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.
