The Edge Pet of The Week 12/19

ID# A1818601 – Nala, is a 3 year old, Black, Labrador Retriever mix. Nala is an easy going, mellow girl. She would make a great walking partner, knows “sit” and loves a game of fetch! Nala also enjoys the pastime of sniffing around the play yard and just hanging out with her person. She is super sweet and affectionate and would make a great family pet. If you would like to meet Nala, visit her at the Eastside shelter.

ID# A1861933 – Chosovi, is an 5 year old, Orange Tabby, Domestic Shorthair mix. The days are cold, but this kitty is furry and warm! He is sweet and personable, loves company and being brushed. Chosovi is handsome, young and playful. Adopting Chosovi could be the best New Year’s resolution you make for 2023. To meet this little guy and find out if he is the cat for you, stop by the Eastside shelter.
