Pets of the Week for April 1
Dec 17, 2015 at 6:15 PM
Miss Dumplin’ is a happy, playful girl which was found as a stray and is looking for a home and family that will enjoy having an entertaining pet. Dumplin’ is about 6 months old – a lab mix – great with other dogs and friendly to all visitors. She would do great in a home with a fenced yard – and probably older children since Dumplin’ has a lot of energy to share. She is healthy, current on shots and will be spayed and micro-chipped before adoption. To meet Dumplin’, call Country K-9 Rescue at 615-444-8011.
Freddie is a handsome young dog, about 10 months old. Freddie was found as a stray, and no owner has been located. But he has done well in his foster home. He is healthy, current on shots and neutered. Freddie is playful and energetic, and he is happy to meet all visitors. He does best with medium-energy level dogs at playtime. For information on Freddie, contact the foster, Andy, at 615-579-8668.
Visit countryk9.petfinder.com or find Country K-9 Rescue Adoptable Pets on Facebook to see other available rescued pets. Our adoption fees are usually $100 for dogs and $50 for cats or kittens. All pets are fully vetted and healthy.
Lady Bug is a 3-year-old, 63-pound, black-and-white Siberian husky mix. She was found as a stray, roaming the streets in Lebanon. Her owners were located, but they decided it would be best if Lady Bug found a new forever home. Lady Bug is the adventurous type and would be best in a home with a fenced yard. She should probably also be supervised while outside. Selective about her canine companions, Lady Bug is playful and fine with some dogs, but comes on too strong with others. She has a lot of energy and loves to play. If you have existing dogs in your home, having them meet Lady Bug in advance would be a great idea. She is a little possessive with her toys and food but New Leash on Life volunteers are working with her, letting her know it’s OK to share. Come and meet this beautiful girl and, with an approved application, adopt her for $85. Lady Bug is spayed, micro-chipped and current on vaccinations. All New Leash on Life dogs must be adopted to families willing to have their pets be allowed inside, especially at night.
Mark is a stunning 9-year-old, 13-pound, grey-and-white shorthair cat. Mark came to New Leash on Life after his previous owner had to move and could not take him with them. He is friendly and likes getting attention but is a little shy at first. He is trying to decide if he likes the other cats in our cat room – but volunteers know with time he will adjust and become buddies and learn to play. Mark is neutered, micro-chipped and current on vaccinations. All cats must be indoor only and shall not be declawed.
