Meet Roco, our PALS Pet of the Week!
Roco is an approximately 6 year old, neutered male, Beagle. This handsome guy is very laid back and easy going, and he has a very friendly and outgoing personality. Roco loves being doted on by our volunteers, and he’s always eager to meet new people, and make new friends! Roco loves getting his ears scratched, and when he’s feeling nice and relaxed he’ll roll over on his back for some enthusiastic belly scratching! Roco’s pretty energetic, too, and he’ll chase after a tennis ball with the enthusiasm of a puppy, even if he won’t actually get the ball and bring it back to you; he’s a character like that! Roco walks very well on the leash, and he knows some of his commands, like “sit” and “stay,” and we’re currently working on teaching him the “down” command; continued basic obedience training is recommended for Roco, though, to help him reach his full K9 potential. If you think Roco would be the perfect addition to your family, please come in and meet him!
Meet Heidi, our PALS Pet of the Week!
Heidi is an approximately 11 month old, spayed female, Dachshund mix. This sweet little girl was brought into the shelter last September, when she was just 5 months old, after having been struck by a vehicle; with multiple fractures in her pelvis, and a severely fractured leg, Heidi was in a tremendous amount of pain. PALS rescued her immediately, and arranged for the surgery to repair her severely fractured pelvis and leg. The surgery was a success, and after several months of rehabilitation and care from one of our amazing fosters, Heidi was back on all four paws and running around without a care in the world. Heidi can be a little shy when she meets new people, or when she’s in an unfamiliar environment, but with a little encouragement and love she warms up and shows her playful side. Heidi enjoys chasing after tiny tennis balls, and romping around the yard, but what she really loves is being near people where she can soak up their love and attention. If Heidi sounds like the perfect dog for you, and you’re interested in meeting her, please call PALS to make arrangements for a meet-and-greet as Heidi is currently in a foster home.
Meet Goldie, our PALS Pet of the Week!
Goldie is an approximately 2 year old, spayed female, Orange and White Tabby. This very affectionate girl was adopted from PALS when she was 6 months old, but, unfortunately, was just recently returned to PALS due to a family member developing an allergy to cats. Despite having her life upended, Goldie seems to be taking everything in stride, and she has been extremely affectionate with every volunteer that she interacts with. She still loves to be held, and scratched behind her ears, and you’ll always know how much she appreciates the attention as she purrs her heart out and nuzzles you under your chin. She’s used to being an only cat, so it has been a bit of an adjustment for her to be around other cats, but she’s slowly coming around to the idea of sharing her space with others. If you’d like to give this sweetheart of a cat a second chance at a forever home, please come in and meet her!
Meet Mackenzie, our PALS Pet of the Week!
Mackenzie is a 4 month old, spayed female, Anatolian Shepherd/Pit Bull mix, and she weighs approximately 32lbs! Mackenzie was one of six puppies in a litter born to an Anatolian Shepherd mix, Claire, just nine days after we rescued her from the shelter; we placed the mom in the care of one of our amazing foster homes, and just nine days later Mackenzie and her siblings were born! Mackenzie was fostered until she was about 9 weeks old, and she has been very well socialized with people, both adults, and children; her foster mom has continued to take her out for field trips every week, so that she feels comfortable meeting new people in any environment that she’s in. Mackenzie is a very sweet and friendly puppy and she loves interacting with people! Mackenzie is also extremely playful, and full of puppy exuberance, and there’s nothing she’s loved more than running and playing with all her siblings, but with four of them already adopted, and another one likely going to their forever home this week, Mackenzie will soon find herself in need of a new playmate! If this gorgeous sweetheart sounds like the perfect fit for you, please come in and meet her!
Meet Blaire, our PALS Pet of the Week!
Blaire is an approximately 2 year old, spayed female, Smokey Black Tabby with white. This beautiful cat was rescued by PALS last year, along with her six 1 day old kittens, and she was immediately placed with one of our wonderful fosters, where she was able to nurse her litter to health in the warmth and safety of a home. Blaire was a very attentive and loving mother to her kittens and it wasn’t long before they were finding their forever homes, and all the while Blaire has patiently waited for a forever home of her own! Blaire is a sweetheart of a cat, and she loves interacting with our volunteers every day. When you hold her, she’ll curl up in your arms and it’s not long before her purr motor gets going. She’s very playful, too, and she loves swatting little toy balls into the air and pouncing on them. Loving as she is with people, Blaire doesn’t seem to care for other cats, and so she will need to be an only cat. If you’re looking for that one special affectionate and playful cat to share your heart and home with, please come in and meet Blaire!
Meet Bronx, our PALS Pet of the Week!
Bronx is an approximately 7 ½ month old, male, Terrier mix, and he weighs approximately 28 lbs. This handsome little guy is so full of energy and life that just being around him will bring a smile to your face. Bronx is a very friendly and outgoing puppy that loves to be around people and he typically makes new people friends easily. Bronx absolutely loves being outdoors where he can run and play, and explore his surroundings; Bronx has fun entertaining himself while outside, but he’s also very social, so he likes to have people nearby to interact and play with him, especially if it means some vigorous belly rubbing for him! Bronx is also super affectionate, and he’s not at all shy about giving out some puppy kisses to show how much he appreciates the love and attention being shown to him. Bronx knows his “sit” and “stay” commands, and we are working with him on the “down” command, but he will definitely benefit from continued obedience training once he’s in his forever home. If this handsome puppy sounds like the perfect fit for you, please come down and meet him!
Meet Agnes, our PALS Pet of the Week!
Agnes is an approximately 2 year old, spayed female, Tortoiseshell cat. Agnes was very shy and wary when she was first rescued by PALS; she’d clearly been around people before, but she was unsure of letting anyone too close after being abandoned by her previous owners. But, over the last few months, Agnes has been shown so much love by our volunteers that she’s regained much of her confidence, and she now actively seeks out engagement with people. She can still be a little shy when she meets people for the first time, but with a little patience and love, she warms up, and her loving personality shines through. Agnes has moments of playfulness, but for the most part she’s a very quiet and calm girl that loves to find a nice warm and cozy spot to curl up in and get loved on, or take long naps. Because Agnes is a bit on the quiet side, she will definitely do better in a home with no small children. If this sweetheart of a cat sounds like the girl for you, please come down and meet her!
Meet Snowflake, our PALS Pet of the Week!
Snowflake is an approximately 3 year old, female, Pitbull Terrier mix, and she weighs approximately 47 lbs. Snowflake is a very sweet and friendly girl with absolutely stunning baby blue eyes. Snowflake can be a little shy when meeting people for the first time, but with just a little bit of patience she warms up and will come up to you for some attention; and, once she feels comfortable around you, Snowflake’s personality really shines through as she opens up and covers your face with kisses, and soaks up all of the attention you show her. Snowflake really loves the outdoors, and when she’s feeling spunky, she’ll take off, racing up and down the length of the dog run, bounding from one side to the other, as she gets her wiggles out. Snowflake has shown some sensitivity to a raised hand, though this seems to lessen the more she gets to know and trust you, so some obedience and socialization training is recommended for her. Snowflake has been at the shelter for a few months now, and this sweetheart of a dog is still waiting for that special someone to come in and fall in love with her! If you think your home might be her special forever home, please come in and meet her!
Meet Benjamin, our PALS Pet of the Week!
Benjamin is an approximately 10 month old, male, brindle and white Pitbull mix, and he weighs approximately 60 lbs. Benjamin is a very affectionate puppy that always enjoys spending time with our volunteers, and meeting new people; Benjamin is a big fan of belly rubs and hugs, and you can always expect a bunch of puppy kisses from him to show his appreciation of your attention! And, Benjamin really loves his time outside, where he can run and play and be the goofy and energetic puppy that he is, and he’s an avid tennis ball chaser, too! Benjamin is a very smart puppy, too, and though he doesn’t seem to have had any obedience training before coming into the shelter, he’s a quick study, and has learned the “sit” command, and we’re now working on the “down” and “stay” commands with him, though we do recommend continued basic obedience training for him; Benjamin is very treat motivated, which should make his training easier. And, with some training, Benjamin might make an excellent running, walking, or hiking buddy! If this loving and energetic puppy sounds like the perfect fit for you, please come down and meet him!
Meet Chaplin, our PALS Pet of the Week!
Chaplin is an approximately 4 month old, neutered male, DMH black & white kitten. Chaplin was rescued by PALS when he was just about eight weeks old, and we were able to place him with one of our awesome foster moms right away! Though he came in all by himself, Chaplin made quick friends with his three new foster sisters, and they soon became thick as thieves! Chaplin is equal parts rambunctious and affectionate, and he loves to be the center of attention; which is probably why he’s usually the first cat to greet our volunteers and jump in their lap when they go in to socialize with the cats in his room. Chaplin loves to be held, and he’ll nuzzle your cheek as he purrs contentedly. And, when he’s not playfully chasing the other cats in the room, or hunting his toys, you can find him curled up in a cute little ball of fur with one of his roommates, keeping warm and cozy, and napping the long afternoons away. If Chaplin sounds like the perfect kitten for you, please come in and meet him!
