November Pet of the Month: Zoey

Published

on

Meet Zoey – a very cute Jack Russell Terrier that has been selected as our November Warren County sponsored Pet of the Month. Zoey is about 12 years old, seems to be okay with big kids (not sure about little ones), other dogs are okay, and she seems to chase kitties. She is very happy to eat treats and run after a ball!

This month, we have special guests Ethan and Jessica Cahill who are sponsoring the adoption fee for Zoey! Be sure to come out to the Warren County Humane Society to visit with Zoey and all her friends who are ready for their furever homes!

Adoption fees sponsored by: Cahill Family
