Our featured pets this week are Lucy and Betsy.

Lucy is a cute and playful 4-month-old tuxedo kitten. She is mostly black with white on her face, chest and feet. Lucy is a little love bug. She likes to be petted and held. Lucy has an inquisitive personality and is ready for adventures and loves playing with her kitty toys. Lucy is just waiting to find that special person who will choose her to be their lifelong companion!

Betsy is a pretty heeler mix that we believe to be about 5-6 years old. Betsy was brought to the humane society after she was hit by a car on U.S. 150. Luckily, she was not severely injured, just bruised and sore. Lucy has always shown a sweet and loving disposition, even when she was not feeling her best. Lucy’s owner was never located and now Lucy is ready to make a fresh start in the new year with a new forever home!
