PAWS Animal Shelter (dog)

Hello, my name is Princess, a 7-month-old Collie mix girl. I came to PAWS Animal Shelter with my brother, Prince, after our previous family moved and we couldn’t go with them. I am a little shy until I get to know you, but that won’t take long. I’m a small little girl who loves treats and walks. I won’t get very big. I’m just gonna be a little girl. I’m just a baby so I can be trained to do all the things you want me to do. I like all the other dogs here at the shelter and I love all you humans. Please come and meet me.

Barely Used Pets

Hi! My name is Jess and I love it when someone calls me “Miss Jess.” I am listed as an older wire-haired Jack Russell Terrier girl. I’m 10 years old and only weigh 10 pounds. Barely Used Pets says I am part of the Seniors-for-Seniors program, so if you are 65 or older so are you. They say I’m “older” and I say I’m “seasoned, mature, smart, just a touch of grey hiding in my coat and still got a lot of spring in my step and you might not be able to keep up with me”…at least in my mind 🙂 My owners had to give up their home and go into a nursing home and they couldn’t take me with them. I know they are heartbroken, but I promised them that I will be alright (and so will they). I am spayed and I have all of my shots. I am also already scheduled for a dental. I have plenty of years left (they say JR kids live a long time) and I’m available in the Senior-for-Seniors program as well as regular adoption. Come and take me for a walk and see how cool it is to walk around with this much seasoning and experience at the end of that leash! I just need a new forever person to spend the rest of my time with. I promise you that not only will you be able to share all of your thoughts with me, but I will help you get through whatever is giving you trouble every day. It only takes a minute of snuggle time with me and all will be better…I promise. Won’t you please take me home with you?

Please visit our website: www.barelyusedpets.com. Also, like us on Facebook at Barely Used Pets Rescue (put spaces between the words). Barely Used Pets is located at 844 Jackson Hill Road in Urbana, Ohio. You can give us a call at 937-869-8090. We are open Sunday 1-4pm, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 11am-6pm and Saturday 11am-2pm. We are CLOSED on Monday and Tuesday. We can always use donations and they are all of those basic supplies that we use so quickly. We need Clorox the most right now if you can drop off a couple of gallons for us! We need Lysol Lemon spray cleaner, paper towels, Dawn dish soap (original), and laundry soap. We can also use the elevated pet beds by Kuranda (go to kuranda.com). Any donations are always appreciated. Please take a look at our website for other ideas for donations.

Thanks so much for considering me and helping Barely Used Pets help all of us little ones find our forever homes. OK…so what are you waiting for? Let’s go home!
