Pets of the Week – February 5, 2018 (Buster and Garthena)


Buster — Adopted

Buster’s big brown eyes are as captivating as his wide smile. This 9-month-old Hound mix has a sunny disposition and loads of energy, and all he wants is someone who will love his goofy self. Because he’s young and spirited, he needs a place where he can run, chase tennis balls, chew on bones, and enjoy the freedom to burn off his puppy-ish exuberance. Buster weighs about 40 lbs, and he’s quite handsome, with a black and white coat, highlighted with lighter black spots. A home without small children would be more suited for his high energy, but another dog or two could be a great doggie blend for him.



From Garthena’s photo, you’d think this was simply an elegant, calm cat who loves to lie around, posing for the camera. How wrong you would be. She is indeed beautiful — with a jet black coat, splash of white on her chest, and bright golden eyes — but this little girl is also a ball of energy. She likes affection, but when she’s ready to get back to chasing around her toys, she’ll jump straight out of your arms and take off again. At just 6 months old, Garthena is likely to stay in kitten mode for quite some time, so she needs a family that will give her the playtime she craves.


The adoption fees are free for both featured pets through February 10, 2018. 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.
