Pets for the week of Aug. 28



Bertha is an adorable round hamster looking for a family to love her. Hand trained, soft and loveable, she would make a great low-maintenance addition to any household.


Fang is a talkative and friendly bangle boy. Do not be fooled by his soft coat, this handsome gentleman is a playful kitty for sure. He doesn’t mind being picked up but this hefty guy may not like to be held for long periods of time. Typical for a bangle, Fang doesn’t enjoy being around other cats or young children, but is very affectionate with everyone else.


B2 and Jefe are the best of friends. B2 is a friendly outgoing gal who loves to give kisses and be wherever you are. Jefe is her shy, devoted companion. More laid back, Jefe takes a little longer to get to know, but once he does he enjoys long hours of being curled up at your side. These two loving kitties have spent their lives together and would really love to find a home that they can continue to share. Do you have enough room in your heart and home for these love bugs?


Belle is a super sweet gal in her golden years, but in excellent shape. Blind in one eye, Belle doesn’t let that stop her from seeing all of life’s enjoyment. A beautiful cocker spaniel with a luxurious creamy coat, this lovely lady likes long walks and playing with toys of all types. A mature girl, Belle would prefer a quiet, mellow home to retire in, without overactive pets or small children. Her new family will need to be willing to address her ongoing ear issues, and give her all the love she deserves.

To meet these pets, visit the Gastineau Humane Society, 2 to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday or 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday. For more information call 789-0260.
