Pet of the week/Nellie

Published 11:03 pm Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Sweet, unassuming Nellie is product of divorce, and was used as a pawn. She is a very affectionate, loving gal of 7 years.Nellie has been quiet at the shelter, but her former caretaker said she does howl sometimes. Nellie is clean in her kennel — housebroken? Her former caretaker said she has been an outside dog, but Nellie confided in us that she would love to be an inside dog — she does mind her manners. All Nellie wants is food, water, a comfy bed and humans to love! She is a “good ol’ gal.” Nellie would make an excellent companion to someone in need of love. She will need updating on shots and spaying soon. Last week’s dog adoptions include: Max, Lilly, Mya, Precious and Red, and puppy, Bear. Cat adoptions include: Rocky, Toga with kitten: Kitty. All breeds of dogs are available for adoption, as well as a variety of cats. Large dogs dominate the shelter, lots of labs with wonderful personalities — and two puppies! Many altered cats are available, too. Come, meet, adopt!
