Pets of the Week: Marcelita and Sir
These rescued pets are looking for a new loving family to call their own.
The Humane Society of Greater Akron is spotlighting these animals for adoption from among the many that are available:
Hola! My name is Marcelita. I am a friendly little cat here at the shelter. In my foster home, I was a good little girl who loved to be petted and with you at all times. I love to walk at your feet and rub up against your legs, too. I don’t mind being picked up and held either. If this little "chiquita" sounds like the perfect friend for you, stop on down at the shelter and meet her.
Sir is a six- to seven-year-old Boxer that weighs about 60 pounds. Wiggle, wiggly and wiggling-butt is the best way to describe this boy! When he knows you and sees you coming his way, Sir's whole body wiggles and shakes with excitement. He loves playing with toys and fetch has to be his favorite game! He has potential with other dogs and would do best in a home with older children. If you think this handsome Sir could be part of your family, he is waiting to meet you!
