Madison-Jefferson Co. Animal Shelter Pets Of The Week

Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at 5:53 AM

By Madison-Jefferson Co. Animal Shelter

Don't forget the Shelter Angel Tree

I'm "KIRSTEN".
I'm a beautiful gal with long silky fur.
You'll find me in the lobby either strutting my stuff or sitting very pretty in my cage so I will catch your attention.
I just can't get enough attention!
I also love to explore and will go off on my own, but will be back for snuggles shortly after. 
I'm a very clean cat here at the shelter and plan to be in my new home too.
You'll know if I don't like my food though. I'll move my food dish around looking for the better food.
I appear to have a preference for canned Salmon varieties.
I'm considered a Tabico. That's a Calico with Tabby stripes. Then I have the white patches to really set off my coloring.
I'm only 2- to 3-years-old and will light up your holidays.
I'm $45 OFF my adoption and spay fee!
 
My name is "STORM".
I'm a loving boy who is very affectionate.
The name "Storm" does not reflect my personality. I'll be a great new family member to share the holidays with.
I'm a handsome Boxer mix that loves to play fetch with tennis balls.
I really enjoy squeaky toys too. But you'll need to buy sturdy ones as I look for what is squeaking.
I am very clean in my kennel and appear to be house-trained.
I sit nicely and am ready for a walk when you leash me.
Just be sure to let me know what you want from me so I don't lead you everywhere as I'm still learning how to walk beside you on a leash.
I weigh 46 lbs. but it might seem like more if I'm pulling on my leash.
I will do best without cats or other small animals in the household.
I seem to not like the other male dogs at the shelter, but that could change after I'm neutered. I'm better with female dogs.
Bring your other dog(s) to meet me so we can be sure before you adopt me.
I'm a 4-year-old who likes to have things set up comfortably and prefers an indoor home.
At the shelter, I demand a thick, comfy blanket in my kennel.
I also like bones to chew on to keep me busy.
The staff know when I'm not satisfied with the service here because I stop keeping my kennel cl
ean.
My adoption fee is $30 plus the cost of my neuter and rabies vaccination.
