Having worked with the shelter I have to tell you about this awesome program that Petfinder does once a year. Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week is an awesome chance for you to meet some of the animals who get looked over by most people entering the shelters for various reasons. For example, the biggest problem in our area is black dogs. When I was running the adoption center we could have 2 dogs, or cats, one white/brown and one black with very similar personalities that were trained and about the same age. The black one would almost always be there 3-4 weeks longer than the other minimum. The other animals that are hard to adopt are ones that are over two years old. These animals still have so much life left in them, at least eight years, and are usually very well mannered so they make great family dogs.
I would highly encourage you to check out all the less adoptable animals on Petfinder's feature page or go to visit your local shelter to find your new friend. Or, if you can't adopt right now, gifts of money, food, and other necessary items are almost always appreciated.
This is Precious from AL. She is six years old and would love to find a home with her three year old brother. They both love to have their bellies rubbed and are mild mannered indoor cats. Precious' special need is to have anti-furball treatments and regular brushing. Contact T-Town PAWS to learn more today.
