Meet the Post-Dispatch Pets of the Week!

Beau-A670006

Hi, my name is Beau and my ID Number is A670006! 

Eleven-month-old Australian Cattle Dog mix, Beau would be the perfect companion in a home where he can be the top dog! Other furry friends are not up Beau’s alley – he wants all of your love to himself! Since he is still a puppy, Beau would love his new human friends to help with housetraining, obedience and all the other skills he needs to be a very good boy. Beau would love a family who will give him all the chew toys and attention his heart desires, as well as the forever home he deserves.

King-A670356

Hi, my name is King and my ID Number is A670356!

Oh, I just can’t wait to meet King! One-year-old, King is a brown tabby with gorgeous green eyes who always strikes the most regal poses! Although he is no longer kitten sized, King is still a kitten at heart, so he would love a home where he can spend lots of time playing and pouncing with some new human friends. This fabulous feline is ready to find a forever family who will give him the royal treatment fit for a king, or just simply indulge him with tons of petting and cuddles in a home he can call his own.

Penny-A668210

Hi, my name is Penny and my ID Number is A668210!

Penny is a one-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix with expressive ears and a playful personality. Since she is still a puppy, Penny would love her new human friends to help with housetraining, obedience and all the other skills she needs to grow into a very happy girl. Her sweet temperament and lively spirit will make her the perfect pooch to tag along on a jog, hike or whatever activity you throw her way.

Meet Oscar, KSDK's Sammy Star!

Hi, my name is Oscar and my ID Number is A647007!

Three-year-old Chihuahua, Oscar is hoping to find a couch buddy who will cuddle him for hours. When he isn’t lounging around, he loves playing with stuffed animals, or going on short walks around the block. When it comes to obedience and housetraining, he already knows how to come on command and prefers to do his business outside. Before coming to HSMO, he came from a home with a cat, so he is open to sharing space with some new furry friends. He has also been around children, but he prefers a slow introduction around little ones. He can be a little shy at first, but once he is settled, Oscar will be so comfortable and happy in his new forever home.

To adopt: Apply in person at HSMO’s Macklind Ave. headquarters in St. Louis City. Hours and directions at www.hsmo.org

Meet Aussie, the Purina Pet of the Week!

Aussie-A671155
Purina proudly feeds the animals of the Humane Society of Missouri

Hi, my name is Aussie and my ID Number is A671155! 

Two-year-old Aussie is an English Spot rabbit with oh-so soft white fur. Aside from being completely adorable, Aussie is a curious little critter who loves to hop over to say hello when his human friends pass by his window. He will need a forever family who will help him continue to grow through positive reinforcement and gentle handling. Aussie would love a home where he will be kept safely indoors with lots of fun enrichment toys to keep him entertained. This happy bunny has a fun personality and it will be hard to stop watching him explore and play each and every day.
