More than 100 cats available for adoptionPope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County
Our pet picks of the week are Shakira and Buster bo bo. Shakira is a 5-year-old Boxer/Shepherd mix. She is a sweet, loving girl. She can be a little nervous around new people so would do best as a home-body in a quiet, low-key family. Although Shakira would be happy to spend a fair amount of time on the couch next to you, she loves to go on walks and have a good game of fetch to tucker her out first. Plus, with a few extra pounds on her, she can use a little exercise to get her back into shape. Come on in and take Shakira for a walk and see if she is your new best friend.
For all of our feline loving friends out there meet Buster bo bo, just one of more than 100-plus cats and kittens we currently have at the shelter. At seven years young, Buster bo bo has seen a lot but now is only interested in a forever home. He is a real sweetheart and plays well with others: cats, kids and even the family dog. What's not to love? With so many fabulous felines at the shelter we will be running adoption specials over the next several weeks to hopefully make loving matches that much sooner. Find out more at hskcme.org.
