Animal Shelter Society Announces Sammy as Pet of the Week

Local News

ZANESVILLE, Ohio- The Animal Shelter Society Pet of the Week is Sammy.

Sammy is a 1-year-old Feline. April Cohagen-Gibson, General Manager of the Animal Shelter Society said that Sammy was dropped off at the shelter and has been there for a little over a month.

“He does well with other cats. He’s a little skittish with dogs, but he could possibly come around on that,” Cohagen-Gibson stated. “He would do well in a home with children. He likes to have a lot of activity.”

Cohagen-Gibson said that Sammy will also be a part of their “Snow on the Ground” special that is for all the Felines at the shelter.

“As most of our public and community knows that we have over 98 cats here at our facility and so what we’re doing is, as long as we have snow on the ground, we’re going to do a snow special. So if the Felines are six months or older, they’re going to be $55 dollars and under six months, we’re going to do $45 dollars,” Cohagen-Gibson said.

The Animal Shelter Society will also be having their Annual Yappy Hour event coming up this April at the Zanesville Country Club. Cohagen-Gibson said even though it’s in the spring, she would love if the community to stay tuned because they will have additional information regarding that.

To fill out an adoption application for Sammy, other Felines or any other animal at the shelter, please visit the website at or stop into the shelter to see what is available.
