JACKSON, MI — The Jackson County Animal Shelter, 3770 Spring Arbor Road, has many pets available for adoption.
Here are two of them.
Polly is a 3-year-old brindle female Staffordshire mix. She’s a happy, laid-back girl who likely will become a stick-tight buddy. Polly is highly motivated by treats and not particularly fond of other dogs.
Potato is a 4-year-old male seal point Siamese cat with stunning blue eyes. He arrived at the shelter from a home hoarding situation with 21 cats. He is frightened at the shelter and will need some time to warm up to a new home.
