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 Pet Profile:
Aliana was rescued from a situation where she and her kittens were living in a home with a large number of other cats. She is shy but curious and takes her time when meeting new people. Aliana is searching for a home where she will be the only pet – she’s ready to have the house to herself! Does this independent girl sound like the missing piece to your family?

    Orphans of the Storm Pet Profile:
    Jack (the Pumpkin King) is the king of purrs! You can hear him roar from across the room. His beautiful, swirly color pattern makes him a very unique ginger kitty. While he can be a bit shy at first, he loves to be petted, and you can tell he really wants a home where someone will love him, pet him, and call him their own 24/7. Let Jack be your treat this Halloween! As of 10/31/19, he is approximately 10-weeks-old.
