Pets of the Week – June 19, 2017 (Phillip and Luke)


Phillip — Adopted

Handsome, regal, and steady, Phillip bears many similarities to the Norwegian Forest cat. It’s easy to visualize he once was a great cat king and now his time is spent in relaxed and reflective retirement. He often sits and looks out the windows as if surveying his kingdom or perhaps he imagining that he’ll soon be in a new home. Phillip goes with the flow seeing no need to create problems that don’t exist. Other cats and dogs are of no concern to him or he can handle anything. He’s a cat who’s more than a cat.


Luke — Adopted

Luke is the kind of dog who makes you shake your head and chuckle. His individuality stems from being a Chihuahua and Dachshund mix who’s IQ is above average. Some say he has a “Napoleon complex,” but it’s more accurate that it’s a “Luke complex.” This little guy has a huge personality and a genuine love for people. His happy energy and “I’m glad to see you!” grin are irresistible and if you lean in close enough, he’ll give you a big smooch on the chin. Luke is a Camp Good Dog for Kids graduate where he learned he’s still always in charge.


The adoption fees are free for both of these pets through June 24, 2017. To see these and other available dogs and cats for adoption, visit the Greenwood County Animal Shelter at 235 Wilbanks Circle, Monday through Saturday, 11a to 4:30p.
