This is the kind of dog that will make you all misty. Yes, Misty (#290650) is a 10-month-old border collie mix who tips the scales at a svelte 37 pounds. Found as a stray, she’s full of energy and waiting for a forever family.
This week, we start a new feature on the pet of the week announcement. If you would like to see a video of Misty playing in the pool, be sure to check her out on YouTube at http://youtu.be/UiDCuZAQnZo.
If you bring this article with you to Animal Services, Misty can be yours for the low fee of $25. And, remember, every single one of the pets offered for adoption at Animal Services are spayed or neutered and have all of their required shots. And, this week, we are bursting at the seams with many adorable and adoptable pets to choose from!
Halloween is just a few weeks away. While you may be enjoying the tricks and treats, it’s important to remember your pet’s health and safety. Chocolate and certain sweeteners are extremely dangerous to dogs and cats. Some pets just don’t want to be dressed up, so be sure your pet is up for a costume if you go that route. And, all of those costumed, unfamiliar people coming to your door can cause a lot of anxiety in pets. Be sure they have a safe, quiet place to hide during the prime trick or treating hours.
Visit Misty and the other cats, dogs, puppies and kittens up for adoption at 12450 Ulmerton Road in Largo, or see them online at www.pinellascounty.org/animalservices/petfind.htm.
