Pets of the Week

Fall is definitely in the air (finally),a s the temperature dropped and the rains from Hurricane Michael found their way to East Tennessee. That means the dogs won’t be quite as hot in their kennels, but it also means they might not get out as much - colder temperatures mean fewer volunteers, and rain means a lot more staying indoors.

So - if you get a chance this week - visit the shelter and spend some time with dogs in need, or make sure they get a good, long stroll around the grounds. They deserve it, and you do, too.

This week’s Pets of the Week:

• Luna is an outgoing Tabby with a winning personality and a lot of curious energy, and she would love to come home with you and your family. A gray domestic short hair, she has been spayed and is ready to find her forever home - let it be yours!

• Prudence is a beautiful, tri-color Beagle who loves attention. Active and well-behaved, she is two years old and still has plenty of puppy energy wrapped up with an older dog’s patience. She would be a wonderful addition to any home or family, she just needs you to pay her a visit.

• Skitty is a tabby-and-white, adult, male domestic short hair who likes to eat. I know that, because he refused to leave his bowl for my photo, and I respect that determination in a young fella. He is shy and reserved, and likes to be held if you’ll take the time. Take your time with him this weekend, and see if you want to take him home.

• Charlie Boy is a five-year-old blonde, male Puggle whose heart belies his size. He is nervous and shy, and still getting accustomed to life at the shelter, but he is willing to meet new people, and just takes a little warming up. He is sweet and loving, and would love the opportunity to show you.
