The Edge Pet of The Week 7/13


ID# A1816311 – Evander is a 2 year-old, Gray Tabby Domestic Shorthair mix. Evander is definitely not the shy, retiring type. He is a very social, chatty guy! He loves roaming his territory, investigating and looking for new adventures. When it comes to meeting new people, Evander is open and accepting to making new acquaintances. He is a very confident boy and has no qualms about strutting his stuff. If you think you might be a good match for Evander and would like to meet him, set up an appointment to visit him at the Eastside shelter.

ID# A1732633 –Presley is a 4 year old, Black and white, American Pit Bull Terrier mix. Presley is a sweet boy who would like to be given the chance to love and be loved. His very favorite thing to do is be next to a human, while getting lots of belly rubs. He looks forward to long walks and these days, he loves chasing lizards. Presley is excited at the idea of having a family to call his own. If you would like to be the one who gives Presley a happy, loving home, contact 311 to set up an appointment at the Eastside shelter.
