Shelter Pet of the Week: Buddy

Shelter Pet of the Week: Buddy


MEET BUDDY! Poor, poor Buddy. He once had a family to call his own … until they decided they did not want him anymore. Buddy was surrendered to a high kill shelter in Texas, where he had little chance at survival. Unfortunately, he suffers from a previous injury on his front right leg that healed wrong due to his first owners not getting him the medical attention he needed. With the amount of energy and happiness this guy has, you would never expect him to have had such a rough start to life. That’s all behind him now and he is currently at Kent Animal Shelter looking for his real forever home.

All this handsome boy wants is to just love and be loved. A 3-year-old Australian Cattle Dog mix, Buddy gets along well with other dogs and would prefer to be in a home without children. Buddy comes neutered, microchipped and is up to date on all his vaccines.

Kent Animal Shelter is located at 2259 River Road in Calverton. For more information on Buddy and other adoptable pets at Kent, please call 631-727-5731 or visit

Update: Buddy has been adopted!
