P.A.W.S: Peanut and Denzel
Are we tickled!? In 2013, more than 300 of our resident four-footers found happy, loving homes. We’d like to find homes for even more in 2014, and we think Peanut is a good candidate for a start-off. This handsome fellow will utterly melt your heart! On a friendly scale of 1 to 10, Peanut is pushing 13, and he is as playful and affectionate as he is friendly. And did we say whiskers? We find it hard to believe that this splendid fellow was a stray, but he’s with us now—though he won’t be for long, we suspect. Begin the new year by losing your heart to Peanut and finding it again full of double the love.
Are you one of the millions (billions, more likely) of people who are starting off the new year with a firm resolution to lose weight? If so, then Denzel can help. This happy-go-lucky dog loves to go on walks and play with a ball, which is a good thing because frankly, my dear, he needs to lose a few pounds of his own. Denzel needs a cat-free home and someone who has experience with pit bulls. He is a roly-poly dog with a very big heart, and he’ll make a fantastic exercise partner. And when did you last see so sweet a face?
The animals here can always use dry cat food, wet cat food, non-clumping cat litter, dog treats and rugged dog toys that won’t be easily torn apart by a rowdy bunch. You can leave your donations in our foyer any time. But better yet, come by when we are open and visit with our crew for a while. You’ll find the peace and quiet and joy that only this special kind of companionship can bring.
If you haven’t already done so, make sure you “like” us on Facebook so you can keep up with what’s going on here at the shelter.
