Tessa, a beautiful mixed breed puppy, is among the pets available for adoption this week form the Danville-Boyle County Humane Society. We aren't sure what breeds are in her, but she will probably be a medium-sized adult. She is affectionate and a bit shy.
Many other pups are available, too, including Spunky and Speedy, two chihuahua mixes; Ginny, a border collie mix; Maynard, a beagle-mountain dog mix, and several others.
Adults include Cleo, a very sweet-natured young adult black Lab who is already spayed. Cats include Pinky, a large tortoiseshell; Pavorotti, a tiger stripe adult; Sugar and Sam, both young tortoiseshells, and many others.
To adopt a pet: The adoption fee of $75 includes spay-neuter surgery, first vaccinations (including rabies), de-worming, feline leukemia test for cats, and Boyle County dog tag for dogs.
