Many pets awaiting adoption

Franklin County Humane Society volunteer Teresa Miller is profiling two dogs in the hopes they will be adopted.

“Rosalee is a 2- to 3-year-old pointer/setter mix who is as sweet as the day is long! She is a very handsome girl who weighs about 42 pounds has a very loving personality. Rosalee walks very well on the leash and has a beautiful gait. She has gotten along very well with all the dogs that she has been introduced to and is absolutely wonderful with people,” according to Miller.

“Georgia is a beautiful Rottweiler/Labrador retriever-looking mix, about 18 months old and 55 pounds. She is a sweetheart with lots of energy.” The dog loves to run and jump, but will settle down to walk well on a leash. She also is good with other dogs and all kinds of people.

The volunteer reports, “Many other well-behaved animals are at the county pound for you to come and visit. Your lifelong friend could be waiting there for you.” More information and photos of adoptable animals are available at http://members.petfinder.com/~IN19/index.html.

Animals at the Franklin County shelter, located two miles west of Brookville just off U.S. 52 on Landfill Road, can be viewed Saturdays from 9 a.m.-noon and Thursdays from 3-6 p.m. Persons can view a directional sign near a bridge.

She says, “Remember to check the pound if you have missing animals because of the recent fireworks displays.” Also, if anyone has lost a ferret in the vicinity of S.R. 252 near Brookville, they should call FCHS at 765-647-1444.

Questions about the dogs may be directed to Miller by e-mailing millow18@gmail.com or calling 765-647-3020.
