Pets of the weekPublished 12:31am Wednesday, February 13, 2013
Alazay, is a sweet, female, shepherd-mix puppy about four months old. Her shorthair coat is tan and black with some white spots. She is a very friendly, active pup that would be great for a family with lots of land so she has plenty of room to run and play. Alazay is ready and waiting to be adopted to her new forever home.
Meet Sassy, a 1-year-old, female, black and white Tuxedo cat. Sassy is friendly with beautiful green eyes and she is a loving lap cat that would be great with a family or single retired couple. She is litter box trained and is ready and waiting to be adopted to her new forever home.
