Patty is our dog of the week! Patty is a 1 year old hound mix that absolutely loves attention and pats on the head. She doesn't like being in a kennel, and it makes her stressed out and angry. Patty also passed her Safer test with flying colors. She does prefer male dogs over female dogs though. She walks great on a leash, and she is waiting for you to come walk her!
Our cat of the week is miss lady Liberty who has sadly been at the shelter since January 28th of this year. Liberty enjoys lounging around in the colony with other cats. She is used to grain-free food because it makes her belly feel better. She loves attention, and she will rub into your hand for more. Liberty has been ready for forever for quite some time, and she is waiting on you now! She is now a year old, fixed, up to date on shots, and she has also ben FeLV/FIV tested.
