GREENSBURG – Another week brings more animals currently housed at the Greensburg/Decatur County Animal Shelter in need of loving permanent homes.
In addition to this week’s featured animals, the shelter has a number of senior cats that often get overlooked with the influx of kittens. Anyone interested in adopting an older cat is encouraged to contact the shelter for more information about the senior cats currently living there. These cats often prefer a quiet, relaxed home and do well with senior citizens who enjoy feline companions.
This week, the Daily News presents Sheldon and Hadlie. Sheldon is a very loving little kitten. He is between eight and 10 weeks old and is very playful. He loves to be held and cuddled. Sheldon gets along wonderfully with other cats. He would make a great family cat and would do best in a home that already has a friendly cat or with a person looking to adopt more than one kitten. Sheldon can be adopted for a fee of $75.
Hadlie is a beautiful adult blue heeler (Australian cattle dog) mix. She is very sweet, but does not like to be kenneled. She would be happiest in a home with lots of land for her to run and play, such as a farm. She does great with other dogs. Hadlie has a high prey drive and she is not recommended for cat owners. She will nip at and chase cats. Hadlie can be adopted for a fee of $100.
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.
