ZANESVILLE, Ohio — Our WHIZ – Animal Shelter Society Pet of the Week this time is Precious, a Beagle mix.
“She’s seven years old, we think. She was an owner-surrender to us and she had lived her whole life outside, basically. She’s definitely getting used to being inside and being around people, and getting comfortable with that,” says Stephanie Hill, Board Member, Animal Shelter Society.
Hill says adoption fees for all senior dogs & cats are half off this month.
“She’s been here a few weeks. She actually had some medical issues when she came to us, so our staff has done a great job helping her get through those. She just returned to us from a foster home, so the time she spent with a foster kind of really helped her come out of her shell and get used to, again, being in a home environment, being around people and she does seem to get along well with other animals as well.”
The Animal Shelter Society is located just off Newark Road, directly across from Ohio University’s Zanesville campus.
