The Kansas Humane Society says that all but three of the Guthrie pets have been adopted and another cat is newly up for adoption. The following animals are still looking for a good home:
Joe the Jack Russell Terrier – (Joe was a TV Star on KWCH yesterday for the noon Pet of the Week segment if you need some new footage.)
Joe’s canine-ality is a Goofball. “I’m a fun-loving, happy-all-the-time, glass-is-half-full kind of dog looking for someone who loves to laugh and play around. Must have a great sense of humor and some time to spend with me. I’m on a mission to please you.”
Kippy the brown & white tabby cat
Kippy’s feline-ality is Secret Admirer. “When it comes to relationships, I’m very level-headed. I don’t leap in paws first, if you know what I mean. But give me a little time, and then I’ll shower you with purrs, head-butts, and plenty of lap time. In the meantime, you may not see a lot of me - but I’ll be thinking a lot of you.”
Zippy the grey cat
Zippy’s feline-ality is Sidekick. “Like all sidekicks, I’m just plain good company. I like attention, and I also like my solitude. I don’t go looking for trouble but I’m no scaredy-cat, either. If you are looking for a steady companion to travel with you on the road of life, look no further.”
Cuppy the black & white cat is
Cuppy is now available for adoption after some extensive dental work.
Cuppy’s feline-ality is Leader of the Band. “I’m a cat who does everything in a big way. I not only like to be in the middle of things - I like to lead the parade. I’m an adventurous cat, but I’ll still make plenty of time to show you my affectionate side. I’m the demonstrative type, you might say. Want a cat who’s brimming with confidence? That’s me.
The Kansas Humane Society is providing a home for about 20 animals after their animal shelter was blown away in Guthrie, Oklahoma by a tornado. Fourteen of the animals are ready for adoption and one has already been given a new home in Wichita.
A spokesperson for the Kansas Humane Society says the animals are healthy and in good physical and mental condition. Both cats and dogs are up for adoption.
The Humaine Society provided a list of the animals that have come from Guthrie to Wichita because of the tornado and are looking for a new home.
The pets, available starting this Friday, June 3, are:
• Joe, 3 year old Jack Russell Terrier mix
