Adoptable pets featured weekly from Animal Friends and Orphans of the Storm!

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:
This beautiful girl is Sparky! She came to Animal Friends after her owner could no longer care for her. Sparky is a curious, young rabbit with lots of energy who loves to run around when she has some space. She’s a social bunny, but would prefer to share her space with other pets on her own terms. This fun-loving rabbit is ready to hop into her very own family!

Orphans of the Storm

Orphans of the Storm Pet Profile:
Zoey is a German Shepherd/Bernese Mountain Dog mix. She was brought to a local veterinarian’s office in February after suffering from her right rear leg being broken. She was surrendered by her owners, who couldn’t afford the surgery. She recovered great in her foster home after surgery and will be ready for adoption after she is spayed. She turned 1-year-old in March. A home with a fenced-in yard is required. She gets along well with other dogs. She would do best in a home with older children, because of her strength. She is very smart, housebroken, and knows basic commands. She is very sweet and loving. Zoey weighs 95 pounds.

Orphans of the Storm Pet Profile:
Begherri is a striking Bengal mix. (His photos do not do him justice!)

He loves people. Begherri lived with older kids, a cat and a dog. He takes time to warm up to a new cat or dog. His family moved and could not keep animals.

Begherri is housetrained, neutered, and has all his shots.
