Help save an animal’s life

Published 9:26am Monday, December 30, 2013

The Shelby Humane Society’s resolution for this New Year is to save even more lives this year than we did last year. With your help we will certainly reach that goal. Meet two of the many homeless pets in your community needing your help to find forever homes and get a second chance at life.

Bo (contributed)

Bo is a 6-year-old, big-boned and big-hearted black lab mix. This handsome boy weighs about 80 pounds—more to love than most dogs. He recently completed heartworm treatment and is ready to complete a family. Mellow Bo loves a walk and a belly rub, a good meal and a great nap.

Rita (contributed)
Rita (contributed)

Rita is a 2-year-old, short-haired, tabby and white cat. Rita has what we like to call “catitude.” This sassy diva is a bit particular to the people she likes and the environment she prefers. She would do best in a safe area where she could go in and out. Rita would also fit well in a home with no small children. On her terms, she loves to curl up in your lap and follow you around.

For more information, contact an adoption counselor by email mwayman@shelbyhumane.org or call (205) 669-3916, ext. 2005. To see the large variety of adoptable cats and dogs at Shelby Humane Society, visit Tuesday through Saturday from 12-5:30 p.m. You can also follow SHS on Facebook and at Shelbyhumane.org. Happy New Year from all of us at Shelby Humane Society to all of you.
