Pet of the Week – Kinley (A208435)

Here is the Mix 103.1 Pet of the Week:

Kinley (A208435)

Kinley (A208435)

Here is Kinley, a 1.5 year old, female, lab mix.  Curious, active and friendly, this young girl likes exploring on walks, sitting with you after exercise, and will climb into your lap to give you a kiss! She’s kennel-trained, used to long car rides and playing outside for 1-2 hours a day. She likes cuddling, playing ball, tug, and chewing on bones and Kongs, and will sit nicely for a treat and take it gently. She’s friendly with kids (though may be too bouncy for really small children). A fine companion for an active home!  Kinley can be adopted for $152, which includes her spay deposit, MOA dog license, vaccinations, and microchip.

Here is Afina, a young adult, female, domestic mediumhair mix cat.  Afina is a sweet gal, who is a great mix of cuddly and playful!  She enjoys feather toys and jingly balls, but is easy to hold and carry.  She is also known to cross her paws while in your arms, highlighting her adorable daintiness.  This has beautiful markings, super soft fur, and striking green eyes – as if her personality wasn’t enough to make you fall in love!  She has already made many friends here at the shelter, one of which is donating the cost of our spay surgery, reducing her adoption fees by $80.  Afina can now be adopted for $62, which includes her vaccinations and microchip.
