Tanner, formerly known as Pringle, is a 15-month-old male domestic shorthair. Due to his interactions with other cats, shelter evaluators request he be the only pet in his future home; however, he is extremely affectionate with adults. His former owner also said he will do best with children who are at least 12 years old. Tanner has tested positive for feline immunodeficiency virus, but can live a normal, healthy, long life. FIV-positive cats can live with FIV-negative cats. According to the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, neither a human nor a dog can be infected. Meet Tanner in a shelter offsite adoption area, Pet Supplies Plus Dearborn, 2621 S. Telegraph Road.
Schmitty, a 2-year-old male mixed breed, arrived at the shelter as a stray. He is sweet and playful, and knows “sit,” “ down” and “shake.” He likes to play with a tennis ball, and loves squeaky toys. He is a highly exuberant dog shelter evaluators think will do best with an active family or individual ready to provide him with lots of play time. You can meet him at the new adoption center.
