Are you looking to bring a pet into your home? Local animal shelters are a great place to find a furry companion. So, as part of Furry Tails, I’ll be doing an ongoing feature on adoptable pets from local animal shelters once a week. If you have room in your heart and are looking to bring a lovable ball of fur into your home, maybe one of these guys is meant to be a part of your family!


Animal Friends

Rickon is a big ball of energy looking for a family that can keep up with his lively personality! If you think this shy but spirited pup is perfect for your lifestyle, you can visit him at Animal Friends!

Animal Friends says:
“Energetic Rickon originally came to Animal Friends as part of a Humane Investigation. He was one of a litter of puppies surrendered to Animal Friends after their family was abandoned in deplorable conditions. He was adopted as a young pup and grew too active for his first family, so we are looking for a very active family that can adequately exercise sweet Rickon. He is an adorable, super high-energy pup!”

“Rickon is appropriate for families with children 10 and older, as he is really a shy little boy behind his energetic façade. He is up-to-date on all his shots, microchipped, and neutered.”

“Best of all, by adopting from Animal Friends, you make it possible for them to rescue and care for another pet who truly needs help. So, what are you waiting for?”
