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:

Shortie is a young pup who came to Animal Friends after he was rescued by our Humane Society Police Officers from a neglectful situation. When he first arrived, Shortie was very energetic and in need of some work on his puppy manners. After working with our staff and volunteers, Shortie has become a more patient pup and has developed great listening skills. He would prefer to be the only dog in a home with kids 13 years or older where he can receive all of the love and attention for himself.
