Adoptable Pet of the Week


Wanda is a three-year-old short-haired, muted torti girl with light green eyes, a tan patch next to her nose, and another tan stripe down her chest.d She is timid and shy and may growl at you at first to warn you, so you’ll need to go slowly and gently with her, but she’s just making noise an doesn’t really mean it. Once she trusts you, she will rub her face all over your hand in affection. Wanda is looking for a quiet home and someone patient and gentle to help her come out of her shell.


The following is included in the adoption fee at ASAP: Spay or neuter surgery, Flea treatment, Vaccinations, Microchipping, Health evaluation, including testing for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV).
