Shelter Pet of the Week

MEET ABBEY AND SARAH!

Abbey

This week’s shelter pets are Abbey, left, and Sarah, above, two sweeties who have just arrived from Mississippi and are waiting at Kent Animal Shelter for their furever homes. 

They are both approximately 2 years old and are ready for the next chapter in their lives. Both have lovely personalities and are great on a leash. As you can see from their photos, a little time spent on Weight Watchers wouldn’t hurt either one of them! With a little TLC they’ll be in tip-top shape.

Come on down to the shelter and meet them! They come spayed, microchipped and up to date on their vaccines and do not have to be adopted together.

Kent Animal Shelter is located at 2259 River Road in Calverton. The adoption center is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information on Abbey, Sarah and other adoptable pets at Kent, call 631-727-5731 or visit www.kentanimalshelter.com.

MEET JACK IN THE BOX!

Jack

This week’s shelter pet is Jack, a 4½-month-old ginger tabby kitten who arrived at Kent Animal Shelter after he was left on someone’s porch in a box. 

Now he is affectionately known as Jack in the Box by Kent’s volunteers who tell us that this handsome boy is shy but very friendly and loving once he warms up to you. Why not drop by and meet him? He comes neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccines.

MEET BLUE!

Blue

Blue, who sports one blue eye and one brown eye, would love a big backyard to run around in and would be best in a home without kids. Once he knows you he’s the sweetest boy! Come on down to the shelter and meet him!
