Pet of the Week: Aragog (54484771)

Are you looking for an adventure? Well, that’s Aragog’s middle name! Aragog is a 2-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier mix who’s loved his outing through the Dog’s Day Out program! Aragog is a favorite to take for a hike, to the river, or to explore! Staff and volunteers love Aragog’s leash skills, love of cheese, and good interactions with people and other dogs. With spring around the corner, it’s the perfect time to adopt your new hiking buddy today! 

Pet of the Week: Jenna (52880865)                                                                                                                                                                                       Meet Jenna! She is a 4-year-old Siberian Husky mix ready to be the center of your world! This sweet pup has stayed in a foster home where her foster reports that Jenna is potty trained and enjoys her daily walks. After living with both a dog and a cat, staff notes that she tends to enjoy lower-energy friends. Jenna is heartworm-positive and is looking for a foster or adoptive home where she can complete her SMRAS-covered treatment and enjoy snoozing on the couch!
