Pets of the Week, Nov. 29

Photographs are courtesy of Ronnie Logue.

Our featured pets this week are Gretchen and Tony.

    Gretchen is a beautiful orange and white cat that is about 5-6 years old. She is a gentle giant who just loves being petted and rubbing up against you. Gretchen was brought in as a stray, but she is declawed and obviously was someone’s house pet. Gretchen is ready for a fresh start in a loving home, and would be a great fit for most any family.

    Tony is a darling 4-month-old Beagle mix. He has a pretty black and brown coat and a spunky look in his eye. Tony has plenty of puppy energy. He loves attention and playing with toys and other pups. Tony will probably be a medium sized dog when full grown. He has been neutered and is ready to make a great addition to his forever home!

On Friday, Dec. 9, bring your pets to the humane society and have their special holiday portrait made by R2 Logue Photography.
