Pet of the Week – Cookie and Pabalou

Pet of the Week - Cat - Cookie

Looking for a social butterfly of a cat? Cookie (ID: A008792) may be your guy! He eagerly greets visitors and loves attention. He enjoys pets and head scratches, and will rub against you or roll on his side for more affection. He seems interested in other cats, but as always, a slow introduction is key to making friends. Cookie does have a few senior lumps and bumps, and he could use a dental. This 8-year-old is a bigger guy at 17 pounds, but a healthy diet and regular activity should help to get him in tip-top shape. Make an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services today to meet Cookie, and you’re sure to fall in love!

Pet of the week - Dog - Pabalou

Looking for a low-key, calm companion? Pabalou (ID: A002942) may be your man! This 6-year-old weighs about 65 pounds. He walks beautifully on a leash and is perfectly house-trained. He’s sweet, gentle, and likes to be near his person. He’s not eager to make friends with other dogs, though, so he may do best as the only prince of the household. Pabalou did test positive for heartworms, but his treatment will be sponsored upon adoption. Make an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services today to meet him!
