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:
Peony was rescued by our Humane Society Police Officers from a neglectful situation. She is rather timid and fearful of new people, places and situations, but she is working hard with our staff and volunteers to learn trust and confidence. Peony would do best in a settled home with older children and a family who is willing to continue working with her. She would also prefer to be the only dog in the home so you can focus all of your love and attention on her!

Orphans of the Storm Pet Profile:
My name is Kaley. I had a happy home and life until my owner became ill and had to give up her three beloved kitties. I am 10-years-old and now looking for my forever home. I get along with other cats, and children. In fact, I am used to being around well-behaved kids who visited often but did not live with us. I enjoy lots of attention and have never been outdoors.

I am eligible for the Orphans of the Storm Golden Buddies Program that matches senior pets (6+ years-old) with senior citizens (65+ years-old.)
