Pet of the Week: Patches

Clearwater, Florida - Our Pet of the week is Patches. Patches is a  Border Collie mix that is just as soft as she looks. She is 10 years old and found her way to the shelter when her previous owner passed away. She is a very sweet girl that loves human companionship and is especially great with children of all ages.

In her previous home, Patches enjoyed the company of another dog. She was also house trained with access of a doggy door. She is a perfect family dog that loves abosulutely everyone. She is obedient with excellent house manners and is an overall happy girl that will surely bring a smile to your face.

Pet of the week: Francis

Francis is a medium sized domestic haired cat. He has a beautifully unique white fur with grey markings. He is 7 years old. He is one of a kind. He is a declawed cat. He is very sweet and likes small places to hide in, but he will always emerge to come greet you with love. He is a diabetic who needs daily insulin and a special diet, but he is a wonderfully gentle, loveable cat who deserves a home where people can meet his special needs. Francis' previous owners turned him in because they could no longer take care of him. He would do best in a home that only has older children in it. He gets along with most other cats but we do not know how he is with dogs. If you have older children or dogs at home please bring them into the shelter to meet him.
