Pets of the week, Feb. 13

Published 9:09 am Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Our featured pets for this week are Billy and Apollo.


Billy is a sweet two and one-half year-old orange and white tabby. He was brought to the humane society as a stray, but he is calm and friendly and adjusted fine to his new surroundings at the shelter. If you are looking for a feline companion, and want to bypass the “kitten crazies”, then Billy would be a wonderful choice. Come for a visit and meet this sweet boy in person to see if he’s a good fit for your family.

Apollo is a gorgeous three-year-old German Shepherd dog. It’s hard to believe he was found as a stray and no one has come forward to reclaim him as their pet. Apollo is a lot of dog! He is very friendly, but high-energy, and probably not for the first time dog owner. Apollo will do great in a home where he gets plenty of exercise and his new owner should commit to providing obedience training and a structured lifestyle. Apollo is a great dog, just looking for his perfect match.
