Receive a special discount on the adoption fee by adopting a Pet of the Week!!!

Don't be afraid of me because I am a Rottweiler, I am actually a friendly guy. I was found wandering about by a very nice family. They could see I was hungry and gave me some food and a nice bath and it felt so good. They were kind to me but could not keep me so they brought me to the shelter so I can find a forever home. I don't like to brag but I am pretty smart. I know about house training and the commands sit, stay and lie down. I try to be nice with other dogs so they will like me and I am okay with cats. I may be about six years old and I will get neutered before you take me home. I hope I go home as soon as possible so please stop by so we can get acquainted. Hey, guess what, a very nice person that is called an Adoption Angel has already paid my adoption fee so I can come home with you for free. Of course you have to get your application approved but you won't have to pay. I have been here for over four months and I had a rough go of things before I arrived. I had kittens and one froze to death, a very sad day for me. Thank goodness some good people brought us to the shelter. I raised the babies and they have found families so I am hoping I will get picked next. Did you know that Winston Churchill had an orange cat that he loved very much? Orange cats are sometimes called ginger cats or marmalade cats. I guess Garfield made all of us orange cats famous. All that being said, I just want a family that will want me to be their cat no matter what color my fur is. I am about two and a half years old and get along with other cats but no dogs please, I am afraid of them. Dogs chased me and scared me when I lived out on my own. I have never learned about children and they scare me too so an adult only home would be best. You know four months is a long time to wait for my forever family.
