Pets of the week



Meet Abby, a 6-year-old shih tzu-lhasa apso mix. Abby is a sweet little girl who likes to sit in your lap and snuggle. She knows a few basic obedience commands and walks well on a leash. Abby can get pretty shy with loud noises and commotion, so she would do best in a home with children older than 10. Abby seems to like all the attention to herself, so she will also need to be the only pet in the home. Do you have a place in your home for Abby?

Bessel is a 5-year-old blue tabby. She came in as a stray and doesn’t seem to be adjusting to all of the kitties around her very well, so she should either go to a home where she can be the only cat, or she will need a very slow and gradual introduction to any other cat. She needs an indoor-only home due to her long coat, and would like to meet any kids she would live with before being adopted.

These pets are among those available for adoption from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday at the Humane Society for Southwest Washington, 1100 N.E. 192nd Ave., Vancouver. The Humane Society is closed to the public on Mondays. Fees — which can include registered microchip, health exam, a spay or neuter certificate and vaccination — vary. Call 360-693-4746.
