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!

He prefers a quiet environment, but loves the people who are closest to him. Even at 11-years-old, Barley hasn’t forgotten the finer points of playing! Does this handsome guy sound like the one for your family? Come to Animal Friends to meet him today!

    Orphans of the Storm Pet Profile:
    I was a stray and a nice person brought me to Orphans of the Storm. I am so happy when anyone stops at my cage for a visit and I love to be petted. I am a nice friendly cat who loves to eat and savor treats!


    Orphans of the Storm Pet Profile:
    River was not in very good shape when he came to us. He is about 10-months-old and has lots of energy.

    River needs an active family who is familiar with sporting breeds. He likes lots of activity and exercise and is eager to meet you. He is very smart!

    He didn’t have a lot of one-on-one time until he came to Orphans.
