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.

Pet of the Week – Frenchy & Cottonball

Here are the Mix 103.1 Pets of the Week:

Frenchy (A207601)

Frenchy (A207601)

We have two rabbits currently up for adoption!  Frenchy is a white, shorthair, adult, male rabbit.  This big, handsome fellow is very friendly, soft, and good-natured. He’s curious and attentive and will come right up to you for petting and attention, and enjoys sitting on your lap. Cottonball is a tan, longhair, adult, female rabbit.  She is very outgoing and friendly, quick to get to know new people.  She enjoys being held and has a calm, patient personality.  Both have very soft fur and are real people lovers!  Rabbits, in general, are very intelligent and social, and can be quite affectionate.  They generally live 8-10 years and require as much care as a dog or a cat.  Many rabbits enjoy playing with toys to chew on and toss around for fun.  Rabbits have delicate skeletons, and so should be handled gently.  Children should always be supervised when handling rabbits.  If you are interested in a pet other than a dog or a cat, this adorable bunny might be the perfect pet for you!  Frenchy and Cottonball can be adopted for $20 each.

Pet of the Week – Tigra (A208242)

Here is the Alaska Dispatch News Pet of the Week:

Tigra (A208242)

Tigra (A208242)

Here is Tigra, a 4 year old, spayed female, pit bull mix.  Calm, cool and collected, this sweet girl is friendly and easy-going, though somewhat shy and reserved.  She’s alert and intelligent, focused, and really enjoys being with people. She’s easy on leash, responsive and affectionate. She’s been to doggy daycare and the dogpark, enjoys playing with other dogs (and has lived with one), rides well in the car, and is used to 1-2 hours of exercise a day. She will chase small animals, so best to a home without felines. She has lived with kids, but will not be a good match for young children due to her shyness. Distinctive striped coat!  Tigra can be adopted for $72, as she is already spayed, which includes her MOA dog license, vaccinations and microchip.
