JACKSON, MI — The Jackson County Animal Shelter, 3770 Spring Arbor Road, has many pets available for adoption.
Here are two of them.
Ferris is a black brindle boxer and Staffordshire mix. He has skills, as he can shake, high five and sit pretty. He is happy, friendly and looking for a forever home.
Bones is a 9-month-old solid gray male domestic shorthair cat with beautiful gold eyes that look like moonlight. He will need a bit of time and attention as he is very fearful at the shelter and needs a calm, patient person to build his confidence.
A meet-and-greet with a dog is mandatory. A cat room walk-through is available to test reaction. The dog adoption fee is $150 for medium and large dogs and $200 for puppies and small dogs, which includes vaccinations, microchip and sterilization.
Cat adoption fees are $60 for one cat, $80 for two, which includes applicable tests, vaccines and spay/neutering.
Visiting the shelter is always best, but other adoption resources include online applications at https://www.co.jackson.mi.us/DocumentCenter/View/803, faxing 517-780-4750 or emailing [email protected]
