The Scoop

The Pets of the Week are Dezi, left, and Elaina, right.

Allen County SPCA Pets of the Week

The following statement was issued Thursday by the Allen County SPCA:

The Pets of the Week are Dezi and Elaina:

DEZI is a three-year-old spayed female black and tan Rat Terrier mix.

I'm Dezi and I am looking for a lap to sit on. I am one of those pups who cling to my owner. I am a nervous little tike with a sweet and loving personality. I am looking for someone to show me how to have fun being a dog. I tend to do better with other dogs who show me around. Because I am so mild-mannered, I probably would get along with children but the shelter

would like to make sure by letting me meet them first. I've been staying with my foster mom who works at the shelter. I do well with her dogs at home and I get to help the business office do their work during the days she is at the shelter. Call the shelter at 260-744-0454 to make an appointment to see me. I don't want to miss you!

ELAINA is a three-year-old spayed female brown tiger domestic short hair cat.

Hey there! I was originally adopted at the SPCA in October, but sadly I ended up at Animal Care and Control as a stray. No worries though-the awesome people at the shelter scooped me up and put me right back into their adoption program! I'm a sweet girl that will rub up on your leg for attention and give a meow or two. I'd love to be spoiled rotten in my new

home. Lots of toys, care, attention, and a few treats is all I need. I'll give you a lifetime of love and company in return!
