Pet of the Week

If you are hoping to find that special, calm companion who will be loyal, loving and always there for you, Millie, No. 17, is the gal for you. She has a beautiful dilute torbi coat with jewel-green eyes and is a spayed 7-year-old, although she looks much younger, trimmer and quite healthy. We think that she’s sometimes misunderstood because Millie tends to be a bit shy when you first meet her. She’s been in some scary situations, but once Millie knows she’s safe, she’s a purring lap lover, sweet and kind. Millie used to live all on her own until we found her Jan. 22 in Haiku. If you are looking for a zen lady that longs to love someone and be loved, Millie can be that girl in your life. If you think she might be the lovely lass for you, please come meet Millie and you will see her true self. Plus, if you come on down on Super Senior Sundays, you even “Pick Your Price” on her adoption fee too.

Kawelu, No. 28, wants to be the special someone in your life. Are you looking for a loving lady with a winning combination of looks and brains? Well, as an 8-year-old, 75-pound, spayed female Labrador mix, that’s Kawelu. She is affectionate and outgoing and loves to cuddle when she’s not busy earning treats with commands like “sit,” “lay down” and “come.” She plays fetch, knows “drop it” and even “shake” and “high-5.” She is attentive and engaging, so don’t be surprised if you find her sitting by your side, gazing up at you with the biggest and warmest pair of love eyes you’ve ever seen. Many folks walk right past her kennel and never give her the chance to show how special she is. Being a dark-coated dog at a shelter usually means you will be waiting for quite a while for the right forever family. Kawelu is hoping the perfect family will see her glistening coat, smiling face and warm brown eyes and will decide she’s the one they’ve been waiting for.

Pet of the Week

Ray, No. 63, is a 10.7-pound, 2-year-old fella who’s favorite place to be is right in your lap. He was found as a stray in Haiku on Jan. 7 and was brought to us for a home. Sadly, he can come off as shy and a little intimidating to some, as he’s often napping in the dark corner under the benches, but that’s just so he can stay out of everyone’s way. Anyone who takes a chance and gives him a few pets will be absolutely showered with a ton of love. Ray is all about plopping into your lap and rubbing you back as much as you rub him. He also likes to cuddle up with his roommates and give the scared newbies the support they need to come out of their shells. If only he could take his own advice, we know he’d be adopted in no time. He’s just a sensitive soul that needs a little more love to come out of his shell, but once he does, be ready for some serious snugglin’. If you need a low-maintenance cuddle buddy, then Ray is totally the purrfect fella for you.

Pet of the Week

Paka, No. 77, is a 3 1/2- year old brindle-and-white neutered male pitbull (American pitbull terrier). He’s a deep thinker that always has a concerned look on his face. That’s because he’s always wondering where the loving is! Although he may look like a big tough guy, he’s actually just a sensitive goofball that wants a ton of cuddles and loves to play with his toys. Shelter life has been pretty hard on Paka; he’s lost quite a bit of weight and his hair has gotten a little patchy in places, too. Don’t worry, they checked and it’s nothing gross; Paka’s just not thriving in this element. He’s a gentle giant that already knows how to sit, how to walk on his leash and most of all how to love. If you were to give him a loving home where he can flourish, Paka is sure to pay you back with all the love and happiness you could ask for and so much more.
