Find a place in your heart for either a pair of brothers or a young lady eager to learn in this edition of the Standard Journal Pets of the Week.

A pair of kitten siblings named Sharpie and Stitch, ID No.’s 43047656 and 43047643 are the cats of the week, and are both solid black in coloring with smooth coats. These 8 to 10 week old Bombay brothers sport large round eyes that are amber in color. They both have received the first in the series of kitten vaccines.

They are a little intimidated by the noise and activity at the shelter. Both are friendly, though, and are playful and curious. They can be adopted separately or together.

Our pup featured this week from Polk County Animal Control is Erin, ID No. 43067014.

She is a juvenile retriever/terrier type mix approximately 6 months old and weighs about 50 pounds. She has received a distemper/parvo vaccine. She is mostly black with flecks of gold brindling throughout. Her eyes are chocolate brown. She is a bit timid but very friendly and enjoys belly rubs.

She is learning to walk on leash. She will grow to be a devoted companion.
