If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share for the regular fix please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. AdoPtville is run by a volunteer who compiles these pets weekly from local shelters.

This 19lb special girl is looking for a special home. Chestnut is a Jindo-mix that was rescued from the Korean Dog Meat trade last Summer by HSI. She spent her first 8 months living in a cage with her sister with little to no human interaction. She is still learning to trust humans but loves her dog friends. Chestnut enjoys playing with her foster sisters and often shows off her zoomie and spin skills. She is also content entertaining herself with toys and her bone and does well when left alone. She is not house trained but is good with pee pads.

Chestnut is a good match for a dog person who is calm, quiet, and willing to put in additional time and patience to teach Chestnut how awesome life is as a companion. She will do best in an adult only home with another confident dog.

Kitty is a beautiful, long hair, tortie girl who loves to be pet! She came from a home with many cats before finding herself at the shelter in July 2020. The longer she sat at the shelter the more she started to shut down. Now that she’s in foster, she’s slowly adjusting. We’re still getting to know her, but she has the softest fur you can imagine!

Here is what her foster mom says: Kitty loves to be petted and hang out with her favorite people. She will even wait eagerly next to your bedroom door in the morning, just to be petted again. She does love watching Cat TV (aka the windows to the outside world) and sitting in the sun, but she will also sit next to her humans just to be near them. She is slowly getting used to sharing a couch with people and to getting picked up, but she gets better every day.

She’ll probably do best in a calm home where someone understands “cat” and can help her become more comfortable at her pace. Kitty can be adopted to a home with a friendly, welcoming cat (who is not pushy or in her face) or can be considered as a single cat. She is about 3 years old.
