Pet of the Week

Adopt Pluto

Have you met Pluto? Pluto came to the shelter in August when his owner could no longer take care of him. Pluto was part of a large-scale surrender of animals. All of these pets were living in difficult circumstances in a single home - also referred to as a hoarding situation. Animals living in hoarding situations with no preventive medical care are at higher risk for infectious disease transmission. The GHS followed current guidelines in managing infectious disease risk during this surrender. Pluto is fun-loving, active boy that loves to be cozy! More often than not you can find him curled up under his blankets but he'll always pop his head out to say hi! He loves to play with his toys and pounce and play! He is shy of new places at first and will find a place to tuck himself away and hide. The cats from this situation spent their life in one small area so anything new is very scary to them! Pluto will need an understanding family that is willing to let him come out of his shell in him own time. Once he's comfortable in an environment his purrsonality shines through! He finds the hustle and bustle of the adoption room a bit intimidating so he's relaxing in our quieter intake room! If you'd like to meet him don't hesitate to ask staff! We'd be more than happy to introduce you!
