Animal shelters have many lovable pets waiting for you

2012-06-27T00:00:00Z Animal shelters have many lovable pets waiting for you

I love dogs and have three of them. They bring joy into my life! A couple of years ago, when I was given a cat, it was with great reluctance that I accepted her!

She was not afraid of the dogs and quickly became a member of the family. Not wanting her to feel left out, I went to the Independent Cat Society in Westville to get her a companion. I selected a male tabby that loves people. He too adjusted quickly and became a member of the family!

Cats are great pets! They are clean, easy to care for, and don't need to be walked!

On a recent yard sale at the Independent Cat Society, I had a look at all the lovable cats waiting for adoption! For a great pet, visit the ICS or any animal shelter in Northwest Indiana! They are waiting for you!
