We all love our dearest pets – they are the extension of our family and our best friends. It breaks our hearts to see the commercials on TV with animals that are in shelters and do not have homes, however, we want to try to get these animals in our local shelters adopted by the opposite approach – a happier and more heartwarming one. Because of our community, these animals will have a happy ending and will have someone to love and take care of them.
Being a local magazine and animal lovers ourselves, we have the ability to reach out to all of our readers in hopes of finding homes for these adorable animals, and in the end, (and hopefully with your help by shares or just talking about these little guys!) we will reach that special someone or family who is looking for a new pet (or foster one), a volunteer opportunity, or is willing to give a donation. We are so optimistic about our lovely community and we want to do our part for these wonderful animals that don’t have a voice but have a lot of love to give back.
Featured Pets of the Week
Princess is a beautiful brown tabico kitty, who came to us when her elderly owner became ill and could no longer care for her. She is not fond of other cats, and can be quite a diva if another feline crosses her path. But she’s not at all shy with people, and will greet you with a hearty head-butt, purring as loud as a tractor-trailer all the while. Though she’s a plus-sized 9-year-old, she can be as playful as a kitten as soon as you shine a laser light in her direction. Our Princess deserves a loving home with a family who will treat her like the royalty her name suggests. If you think that family might be yours, come in and meet this lovely lady today.
Bear is a 3 year old Golden surrendered to our facility because his owner passed away. Hes not too happy being here after being in a loving home his whole life…poor baby is confused. He is said to be ok with other dogs and kids. He would love to find a new family to spend the rest of his life with, please come in to meet Bear today!
Duke came into JSAC as a stray in the beginning of December. He is about a year old. Duke is a high energy dog who will do well in an active home. He does get along with some female dogs. We think he would be fine with kids over 12. No cats please. He is neutered and appears housebroken. Duke is such a fun boy and cannot wait to get out of this place and a find a family who will love him forever!
