Dog of the Month

support Florence animal shelter

Snoop is a 2 year old Boxer Bulldog with lots of personality. He is attending obedience classes at the shelter and is loving all the attention. He enjoys belly rubs and taking long walks in the morning. Snoop is looking for a foster home so he can receive heartworm treatment. If anyone is interested in adopting or fostering him through his treatment, you can call the shelter for details. $85 adoption fee.

Cat of the Month

shelter dog

Russell is a gorgeous 6 year old, neutered, Domestic Long Hair cat. He requires additional grooming/brushing to help keep is majestic coat of fur full and beautiful. Russell loves relaxing in the morning sun and chasing the occasion lizard that visits his enclosure. He was left behind, abandoned by his family when they moved away. He deserves to know what love really is. Do you have time and room in your heart for Russell? Neutered and ready to go. $65 adoption fee.

Senior of the Month

long haired black cat

Spunky is an 8 year old Persian. He has the face of a cartoon and many go so far as to suggest he may be related to Wilfred Brimley. (Google it, you’ll get it.) In his dreams he enjoys quiet afternoons lounging poolside eating tuna. Most days he sits in his cage watching the strangers pass him by. He offers up an occasional fish flavored breathy meow, but mostly keeps his thoughts to himself. $40 adoption fee.
