Pet of the Week – June 29, 2015

Filed under: City,Pet of the Week |

Meet Aggie!  This pretty, little lady is a beagle/shepherd mix and is approximately 2 years old.

Aggie-Med-POWShe is very sweet and energetic, gets along with other dogs, and is very good about keeping her kennel clean.

This poor sweetheart arrived as a stray over 1 month ago and never found her owners.  She is looking for a fabulous new family to join…could it be you?!?!

Pet adoptions are normally $75 and include initial vaccinations (including rabies), de-worming, heartworm testing (for dogs), microchipping with registration, a collar with tag, cardboard cat carrier (for cats), and an offer for a 30-day gift of free pet health insurance.

If you are interested in Aggie, or any other pet that may be up for adoption, please call or come on down to Tri-City Animal Shelter & Adoption Center at 972-291-5335.

The shelter is located at 1150 E. Pleasant Run Rd. in Cedar Hill, TX.*

Tri adopting – it’s a way of life!
