DBCHS Pets of the week, Sept. 5

Our featured pets this week are Gentry and River.

Gentry is a beautiful little five-month-old tabby kitten. This sweet girl was brought to the humane society in May when she weighed slightly more than a pound. So Gentry has spent the summer with us, but she is now ready to find her forever family. Gentry has a lovely disposition. She is very outgoing and playful, and she loves to explore. Gentry gets along great with the other cats and she is now living in one of our kitty condos. Gentry is sure to give her lucky adopter many years of love and companionship!

River is an impressive one and a-half-year-old shepherd mix that was surrendered to the shelter because his owner hit hard times and lost her home. He has a friendly demeanor and always greets you with a big smile and wagging tail. River is a smart, alert and attentive boy and he plays nicely with other dogs in the exercise area. If you are looking for a best buddy and handsome sidekick, come for a visit with River and you are sure to want to take him home!
