Gina 23395248

This week's cat is Gina, also known as Miss Purrs-a-lot. Just pet her or hold her and you will see how she got that nickname! Gina is very people-oriented and absolutely adores being cuddled, petted, and loved on. She's about a year old so she has lots of spunk. She's playful and curious, always wanting to check out new things. All you have to do is meet this fluffy, sweet girl and you will want to snuggle with her all day long! Come meet her at the Humane Educational Society today.

Say hello to Jack, our Pet of the Week! Jack is a beautiful Dalmation/English Setter mix. He's only about a year old, so he's a young dog with a happy-go-lucky personality.
