JACKSON, MI — The Jackson County Animal Shelter, 3770 Spring Arbor Road, has many pets available for adoption.
Here are three of them.
Sassi and Shadow are a strong bonded pair of friends who recently were adopted as a pair.
Sassi is a 3-year-old, mostly black, female Staffordshire mix dog. Shadow is a 1-year-old, male gray-and-white cat. He is missing his tail. These two along with another dog traveled together as strays.
The person who found them plans to keep the third dog. The bond between these two is incredible and to see them together is heart warming. They have been featured on TV news channels who found their bond unique and captivating.
Deuce is a 3-year-old solid black shorthair cat. He is not loving it at the shelter, even though he is usually cuddled up with his best bud Sweet Pea.
They were both surrendered by their owner. He is going to need someone who can be a little bit patient with him. Deuce has those big gold eyes that look like moons.
A meet-and-greet with a dog is mandatory. A cat room walk-through is available to test reaction. The dog adoption fee is $150 for medium and large dogs and $250 for puppies and small dogs, which includes vaccinations, microchip and sterilization.
