Meet the Post-Dispatch Pets of the Week!

Candy A648285

Hi, my name is Candy and my ID Number is A648285! 

January is Adopt a Rescued Bird month, the perfect time to give a forever home to a feathered friend like Candy! Candy is a young adult Barred Rock hen who would love to become a part of your flock. She is friendly towards her human pals and she’s fun to watch as she forages for insects and tasty treats on the ranch grounds.  Candy currently lives with another chicken and a guinea hen and could be introduced into an existing flock.

To adopt: Apply in person at the Humane Society of Missouri’s Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in Union, MO. Click here for hours and directions.

Zora-A664844 and Mustachio

Hi, we’re Mustachio and Zora, and our ID Numbers are A664845 + A664844!

Mustachio and Zora are a bonded pair of littermates who have lived together for over seven years. They want nothing more than to be adopted as a pair! Zora is the social butterfly who loves to give hugs and little licks to your face while she nuzzles your shoulder. Mustachio can usually be found lounging on his favorite bed or snuggled up to his sister. They’re soft and fluffy, and they can’t wait to find their forever home, together.

To adopt: Apply in person at the Humane Society of Missouri’s Best Buddy Pet Center in Maryland Heights. Click here for hours and directions.

Sylvester A665648

Hi, my name is Sylvester and my ID Number is A665648!

Sylvester is a 4 year old Staffordshire terrier mix with super short legs, soulful eyes, and a huge heart. Sylvester loves to go for walks, sniffing and snorting along the way with his tail constantly wagging. Not only is Sylvester handsome, he’s also smart! He already knows “sit” and “down,” and since he’ll do just about anything for a yummy snack, teaching him even more tricks will be tons of fun. Sylvester can’t wait to meet his forever family!

To adopt: Apply in person at the Humane Society of Missouri’s Macklind Ave. Headquarters in St. Louis City. Click here for hours and directions.
