Pet of the Week – April 22, 2015

Filed under: City,Pet of the Week |

Meet Christy!

This sweet little girl is declawed and arrived as a stray at the home of a family that was unable to keep her as part of their family.  They brought her to the shelter in the hopes that someone would adopt and love until the end of time.  She is a little shy, but very sweet and cuddly, and we think she is about 5-6 years old.

Pet-of-the-week-4-20-15-Christy2All shelter adoptions are only $75 and include initial vaccinations (including rabies), de-worming, heartworm testing (for dogs), microchip with registration, a collar with tag, a cardboard cat carrier (for cats) and an offer for a 30-day gift of free pet health insurance.

If you are interested in Sharona, or any other animal that may be up for adoption, please call or visit us at Tri-City Animal Shelter & Adoption Center at 972-291-5335.
