DBCHS Pets of the week, April 17

Our featured pets for this week are Max and Piper.

Max is a precious 6-month-old buff tabby. He was an owner surrender due to his owner having too many cats and not enough time. Max has a lovely light yellow coat and matching golden eyes. He is a darling fellow with a sweet personality. Max is outgoing and gets along great with other cats. He has now been neutered and brought up to date on other vetting and he is ready for a new home. Max will give you many years of fun and love if you choose him for adoption.

Piper is a gorgeous 2-year-old mixed breed dog. She weighs 40 pounds and is black and white with a wonderful big patch over her left eye giving her a very distinctive look. Piper was surrendered to the humane society because her owner didn’t have the time to keep up with an active dog. Piper needs a fenced yard and someone who is able and willing to give her the exercise she needs. Obedience training and other activities to keep her mind busy would direct Piper’s energy in the right direction. This girl loves people and she just asks for love and attention in return.
