GREENSBURG – Another week brings more animals currently housed at the Greensburg/Decatur County Animal Shelter in need of loving permanent homes.
This week, the Daily News presents Levi and Pete. Levi is a very sweet male cat. He was brought to the shelter as a stray and has never been reclaimed. Levi has great socialization skills with people and doesn’t seem to mind being around other cats. He actively solicits attention and loves to be petted. He can be adopted for a fee of $75, with his neuter, vaccinations and parasite treatment included.
Pete is a one year old Mountain Cur mix. He and his brother Leroy (identical expect for a curlier tail) came to the shelter as owner-surrenders. Both dogs are very sweet. Pete (or Leroy, or both) can be adopted for a fee of $100 (per dog), which includes treatment for parasites, vaccinations and neutering.
Every pet adopted from the shelter is vaccinated, has been treated for parasites and is spayed or neutered, all of which is included in the adoption fee. Would-be pet owners must be aware that there is a leash ordinance in the city and in the county, pets must not roam from the owner’s property.
The Animal Shelter is open Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The shelter is always closed on Sundays, Mondays and holidays. The Greensburg/Decatur County Animal Shelter is located at 1635 West Park Road and can be reached at 812-663-9081.
To adopt a pet from the shelter, one must be at least 18 years old and sign a contract. Before taking a pet home to a rental home or apartment, written consent from the landlord must be presented. Prospective owners must also have containment options other than chaining available for the pet. Found pets have a three day hold during which they cannot be adopted. If no owners contact the shelter in that time period, a found pet may be sent to a new home.
If interested in providing a permanent loving home for Levi or Pete, please contact the Greensburg/Decatur County Animal Shelter for further details. Also, a complete list of adoptable cats and dogs is available at the shelter’s website: http://www.cityofgreensburg.com/animal.html.
Adora and Tami, the pets featured in last week’s Shelter Spotlight, have both found their forever homes and been adopted.
