Pets of the Week

There are many prospective pets in our region, and several top-notch facilities with great staff to care for the animals —so I think you should take advantage of those facts, visit a local shelter, and offer a loving animal a new shot at a forever home.

Do it soon, folks. It will be well worth your while.

If you think you can offer a loving home to one of the animals listed below, just know that there are hundreds more just like them in need of the same thing, all over East Tennessee. Visit your local shelter and give them what they need.

• Janie is a one-year-old, dark brindle, female Plott Hound who needs to go to a good home full of love. She is active and beautiful, and loves to be the center of attention. Still a little skittish and scared at the shelter, please pay her a visit and see if you make a connection.

• Cooper is a two-year-old, neutered male Pitbull mix who loves people. A handsome fella with a white, red and tan coat, he is very well-behaved and looking for a family to welcome him home.

• Dante is a black and white, three-year-old, neutered male domestic short hair who likes to have visitors - hoping that one of those visitors will be willing to take him home. He is laid back, sweet, and ready for adoption.

• Branch is a kitten, through and through. Six weeks old and still adjusting to life at the shelter, this black and white, male domestic medium hair is playful, fun, and loving. He would be the perfect fit for a family looking for a new member to grow and enjoy life together.

You can visit the Elizabethton/Carter County Animal Shelter at 135 Sycamore Shoals Road, Elizabethton, or call them at 423-547-6359.
