Pets of the week

GREENVILLE - The Darke County Animal Shelter has many pets available for adoption, including several breeds of dogs, as well as cats and kittens. The Shelter chooses pets to feature each week, this week they've selected:

Lucky is a 2 year old Lab mix. He is black with a little white and has short hair. He is a friendly guy who is loves to play ball. He loves to be with you and have fun. He knows how to sit and shake and is very smart. He could stand to gain some weight and will make a great friend. He is current on his shots and has been altered. He walks well on a leash. He is looking for a good home.

Bentley is a 5 month old Australian Cattle dog (Blue Heeler) mix. He is black and white with short hair. He is a sweet little guy who loves to play. He just wants to play and have fun. He does know some commands. He is current on his shots. He walks well on a leash. He is looking for a good home.

They also have boxer mix, a coon dog, a Spaniel mix and numerous other dogs ready for adoption. They also have cats and kittens for adoption.

They have had a tremendous adoption/redemption rate. If they don’t have what you want now, please keep checking. The right dog might come in tomorrow. The rate is over 80%. This success is due to the website, pet finder, newspapers, word of mouth and radio. Their only social media outlet is “The Darke County Friends of the Shelter”. Any other social media postings are not affiliated or endorsed by the Darke County Animal Shelter.

The 5K run/walk for the Scentral Dog Park was a huge success and a lot of fun. The Darke County Friends of the Shelter want to thank everyone who participated and hope they had a good time. The Shelter hours are 8am till 4:30pm Monday-Friday and 9:00 till noon on Saturday. The Shelter is located at 5066 County Home Road in Greenville, and the phone number is 547-1645.
