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 Henry and Possum. Henry has been with the shelter for some time now and employees are hanging on to him, hoping he will find his forever home soon. He is a very nice, friendly family dog. He is a black and tan coonhound mix. Henry is fully vetted and ready to go home the day he is adopted. He gets along well with other dogs and would be a wonderful family pet. Henry can be adopted for a fee of $100.
Possum is a very sweet female kitten. She is extremely loving and will purr with any human contact, even while she’s getting a vaccine. She is big and old enough to be spayed, so she is just waiting for her person to come along. She gets along well with other cats. Possum solicits attention and would do well in a home that already has a cat or with someone looking to adopt more than one kitten. She would also do well in a home with an owner who has a lot of time to devote to her. Possum’s adoption fee is $75.
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.
