Pets Of The Week!
My name is Patches and I am a 3 year old Pit Bull Terrier. I seem a little territorial of my cage, but that is just because I want you to take me for a walk! I came to the shelter as a stray, so they do not know much about me. I seem to like other dogs, as long as they like me back! At the time of my adoption I will be spayed, microchipped, up to date on my vaccinations and ready to meet my forever family!
Tigger is a 3 year old female brought to the shelter as a stray. She has a very calm personality and seems laid back. Her favorite thing to do is take naps in the window. We are not sure if she likes other cats or not but she is able to be in the play room with other cats. She ignores the others for the most part. Tigger seems to have some sass to her but loves to be petted so she would do better in a home with older children. We are unsure if she likes dogs or not. Tigger is spayed, current on vaccines and microchipped.
