A cat who would make a great gift for someone in need of love, and a pup who needs a lot of love herself are available now at Polk County Animal Control just waiting for someone to bring them home.

The Cat of the Week is Russett, ID No. 43131910. He’s a young black and white Tuxedo kitten. His coat is short, soft and smooth. His large eyes are amber/green. His white whiskers stand out against his black coat.

He is approximately 4 months old and has received his first in the series of kitten vaccines. He is a bit intimidated by the noise and activity of shelter life. He enjoys attention and “opens up” when engaged in play, and would make a sweet companion.

The Dog of the Week is Zara, ID No. 43206282. She’s and adult Heeler mix approximately 2 years old. She has received a distemper/parvo vaccine. She is mostly black with speckled black and white on her legs and face. She has the cattle dog “Bentley Mark” on her forehead and a short tail.

Her coat is of medium length. She has sustained an injury to her left eye and her right eye is brown and blue. She is very friendly and submissive. She is unfamiliar with a leash but can be easily led and maneuvered.

She has a tendency to “commando crawl.” She is well mannered and does not jump up on you. Volunteers report that she a sweet girl who just wants a home.
