Senior cats and senior dogs are the hardest to find homes for…ask any shelter or rescue! Many times throughout the day, shelter workers hear people say they want to adopt a puppy or kitten. Rarely do they hear anyone say they want to adopt a senior pet.
The Greeneville Greene County Humane Society would like to introduce you to two very precious seniors in need of loving families. Their names are Puddy Tat and Jack. Both Puddy Tat and Jack have their own story and both deserve to live out the rest of their lives where they will be happy and comfortable.
Puddy Tat is a beautiful Siamese cat that loves to do nothing more than to lounge around. She's approximately 14 years old and has no teeth. Though toothless, she still insists on eating dry cat food. She "gums" her food until it's soft enough to swallow! Puddy Tat would love to have a calm, loving home where she can snuggle and lay in front of a window. We know there's a special person out there somewhere that will want to make Puddy Tat a part of their family!
Then there's Jack. Jack is a ten year old Poodle mix that had been relinquished to Animal Control. Since Jack was such a wonderful little dog and the Greeneville Greene County Humane Society had an open kennel, they took him in so he wouldn’t be euthanized. Jack is loves treats and attention. Every morning when Adoption Center employees open his kennel, he will jump into their arms! His entire body will wiggle with happiness! He enjoys wearing sweaters, going for walks on a leash and snuggling with a soft blanket. He will often bark at visitors, but we think this is his way of saying “hello”. You can look far and wide, but we’re confident you’ll not find a more loving little poodle.
Both Puddy Tat and Jack have very reduced adoption fees. They’ve been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and vet examined. We encourage you to stop by the Humane Society and visit them. You can sit in the rocking chair in the cat room and hold Puddy Tat or take Jack for a walk on our new dog walk.
