Pet of the Week: Shadow
The greatest thing happened when I visited the City County Animal Shelter yesterday to meet this week’s Red Hills Pet of the Week, Shadow.
Since it was close to closing time, there were four City Animal Control Officers there. Wearing big smiles, they all assured me there were no dogs at the shelter. Because, of course, I couldn’t believe them at first. The last three dogs had been adopted. It’s a great problem to have! But, that could change tomorrow.
Back to this week’s star – Shadow, who looks quite handsome in his black and white tuxedo.
In addition to Shadow, there are still a wide variety of felines available for adoption at the shelter.
Shadow is a three-year-old male, who came to the shelter as a stray. He’s been neutered and declawed and is up-to-date on shots.
He’s pretty mellow, just raising his head to look at me as I opened his kennel. He didn’t even bother to get up as I pet his head. Shadow would be a great companion for any cat lover. He’s been at the shelter for 31 days, so he’s more than ready to come home for the holidays.
The shelter is open today from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Weekday hours are from 1 to 5:30 p.m. Click here to download an adoption application.
