Pet of the Week: Masha and Willows

  • 0


This terrific canine-girl is a Pit Bull/Terrier mix estimated to be about 2-years-old old and 55l bs. She has loads of personality and absolutely loves people. While at the shelter, she has played well with other dogs who respect her space and share her love of running. As always, it’s best to bring any dogs you own for a meet and greet before any adoption is finalized. Masha had to be surrendered to JCAS because she suffered separation anxiety when left alone. In fact, she was so lonely she had to let the rest of the mobile home park know. However, this is something that can be worked on and, at least, you know she will always be happy to see you. Masha is energetic, smart and social. She needs a person who wants to spend loads of time with her so she can be given the best balance of mental and physical stimulus, along with loads of LOVE. Some misunderstand her energy level, but when she is walked by calm and assertive handlers, she responds well to commands and settles down well. It certainly helps that she loves treats and takes them very gently! She just needs to have a dog-savvy human help her feel safe, secure and loved. If you could be that person and would love to share your life with this vibrant, loving canine, you’ll be happy to know her adoption fee had been generously prepaid by a FOTAS supporter who knows how wonderful this girl truly is. Make an appointment to come in to meet this Brindle-Beauty! You’ll just have to budget for the annual license fee of $25 if you live in Jackson County.


This striking, dark-haired kitty has had some tough times but she is still full of love. At 11-years-old, she hopes to find her FURever home soon. When she came to the shelter, Willows had some intense matting that caused pressure and scarring on her skin. It has all been removed and she has recovered quite nicely. Willows even lost a significant amount of weight during that time, which certainly makes her senior life easier and healthier. All she needs is a good diet and some regular brushing to keep her coat stay healthy and smooth. Willows is very sweet and willing to share all her love in order to be the center of your world. Do you have it in your heart to give this black beauty a purrrrrfect home? One of the generous FOTAS supporters has prepaid the adoption fee for this loving cat, so please call the Jackson County Animal Shelter to meet her today!
