Pets of the Week – July 17, 2017 (Buddha and Piper)



As a graduate of the Pawsitive Prison Program at Leath Correctional Institute, one-year-old Buddha is oh-so-ready to go to his forever home. This Black Lab mix enjoys running and playing and stopping to sniff out anything of interest, like a rock, a leaf, or a piece of paper. To show he’s a stellar student, he has learned twenty skills and verbal commands while in the program, along with being potty and leash trained. Buddha is a rare gem and his adopter will feel like they have found the motherlode of dogs.


Piper — Adopted

Pretty, playful Piper purrs persistently. She purrs because she’s always happy. She’s happy because she’s always playing. A perfect specimen of a glamorous Tortoiseshell cat, this one-year-old youngster is as visually captivating as she is entertaining. Piper Fun Fact: When she sleeps, her front paws curl together like she’s praying. She’s probably asking for more toys to enjoy and more hours to play.


The adoption fees are free for both featured pets through July 22, 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.
