DBCHS Pets of the week, Jan. 30

By BARB BEANEY

Our featured pets for this week are Pip and Bonnie.

Pip is a wonderful 1-year-old calico kitty with gorgeous emerald green eyes. She was brought to the humane society because her owner could no longer care for this sweet girl. Pip was an indoor cat and gets along with everyone she meets. She has a quiet personality and loves to be pet and taking naps in a sunny window sill. Pip would make a wonderful addition to most any family. If you are looking for a forever friend and sweet lap-warmer, come and meet this fancy feline.

Bonnie is a cute 1-and-a-half-year-old heeler mix. She weighs 33 pounds and is a pretty tri- color with adorable prick ears. Bonnie has a sweet and loving disposition, but she is a little intimidated by the new surroundings at the humane society. She wants to be close to her handler for a sense of security. Bonnie will blossom as she gains confidence, she just needs an adopter who is willing to spend some extra time with this special girl and give her the training and love that she deserves.
