The Edge Pet of The Week 10/5


ID# A1820120 – Dale is a 2 year old, Orange, Domestic Shorthair mix. Great orange cat, that is just what Dale is! Dale is an avid explorer of his surroundings. He is a very curious guy. He talks to himself as he goes about his day and if you let him, he will talk to you too. Dale loves attention, mostly head pets. He can have a little bit of cattitude and would do best in an adult home and with older children. To meet Dale, stop by our Eastside location and join the virtual line.

ID# A1817214 – Billy is a 1 year-old, Brown, American Pit Bull Terrier mix. Billy has an energetic personality, he is ready for fun and adventure. He is a strong boy, and may need a little help with leash and harness training. Billy also likes his quiet and relaxation time. He enjoys playing with soft plush toys, but would exchange it for a tasty treat. Billy has a lot to offer someone and looks forward to finding an owner who is willing to train him and give him lots of love and attention. Billy is at the East side shelter and if you would like to meet him, sign up to our virtual line.
