McKamey Adoptables Of The Week Are Ready For Their Forever Home

Friday, July 24, 2020

McKamey Animal Center has two new pets looking for their forever homes this week.

Officials said, "Meet Barbas and Twister:

"Barbas is a true hound dog. He loves adventures where he can smell every blade of grass and will also need a yard with a tall fence and some supervision to make sure his nose doesn't lead him astray. Barbas is getting training with Good Citizen K9 and comes with a free 1:1 session for his new furever family. Barbas loves canine friends, but would need to meet his new fur-sibling before going home. Barbas also loves respectful children that know how respect his space when he's done exploring the world. Barbas knows sit, stay, come & fetch, and is eager to learn much more.
 
"Twister, is a beautiful girl who may be shy, but she is very loving. She is usually in her kennel rolling around for love. She lived with other cats before and her previous owner says they all got along. Twister is about two years old. If you do have other pets at home, remember to go slow and use caution when introducing unfamiliar animals.
