Chico, a 3-year-old male mixed breed, is a surrender whose owner no longer was able to care for him. Shelter staff describes this 29-pounder as “sweet,” “goofy” and “playful; and they’ve found he likes to play with a rope toy. Evaluators think he will do best in an active home where children are at least 12 years old, and children should meet him first. You can meet Chico in the shelter’s Lapdog Lofts in the new adoption center.
Kishmish, a 2-year-old female domestic medium hair, arrived at the shelter as a stray. You can meet Kishmish (Turkish for “raisin”) in the new adoption center.
Joy (Sassy), a 7-year-old female domestic shorthair, is a surrender when her owner no longer could care for her. An independent gal who loves to do her own thing, she still loves to cuddle and show affection. Just give Joy a couple of gentle head and chin rubs, and she’s a cuddle buddy for life. You can meet Joy at a shelter offsite adoption center, PetSmart Dearborn, 5650 Mercury Drive.
