|Our featured adoptable pet |
Meet Bowtie ...
a 1-year-old brown and black male guinea pig. He is friendly, used to children and enjoys being held.
Come meet "Bowtie" at the shelter during normal business hours.
When our dog died in Nov. 2008, I hated not having a dog in the house. That's when I began visiting MCHS on a regular basis, looking for the perfect dog for our family. I found a timid, shaking Cocker Spaniel in one of the cages. My sister and I walked her and were sold. Later that day, our parents came to visit and put in an application for her. I named her Honey. 7 days later we took her home.
It has been 4 years and she is the greatest addition to our family. Honey is sweet, playful, and charming. I HIGHLY recommend adopting a shelter dog, but make sure you do your research and find the dog that is the right fit for you, like Honey is for our family.
