Don't be discouraged by the repaving of Martha Truman Road (Yay!), Wayside Waifs is open. All sorts of fabulous animals are there just waiting to meet you and become part of your family. Like George 2 here. He is a year and 3/4 old, Aussie cattle dog/Shepard mix, mostly white as you can see. He likes dog treats; that's how I got him to sit so pretty for his photo here. He will need an active owner, willing to take time with him, but the reward will be great. Look at that doggie smile! Wayside Waifs is running an adoption special in October which is"Adopt a Dog Month" Dogs weighing more than 45 lbs will cost $1/pound up to a max of 75 pounds/dollars. Not sure how much George 2 here weighs; why don't you go on down and find out.
Or maybe cats are your thing. Meet Tatiana. She is a tortie semi long hair girl. Pictures just don't do this beauty justice. She is what the cat fancy call a "smoke"; her undercoat is white. She is also just short of 2 years old. You really have to come see her in person. She enjoys petting and is playful. She'll adjust well to having her own home.
Tatiana says I like the sisal scratching post. Note the light undertones at the base of her tail.
