Meet Precious & Peter, City of Arlington Animal Services Pets of the Week.

Cat of the Week – Meet Peter

This nearly two years old male Domestic Shorthair is blue and black in color. The meaning of the name Peter is said to be "stone" and finding your new furry companion is just a "stone's throw away" at the animal shelter. Peter is a very active cat and loves to see the world at a fast pace. He tries to get to his next adventure as fast as possible. After he's checked out everything then he will "slow his roll". When you provide "pets" to him, he'll navigate by stretching to get the "pets" to just the right spot. When that right spot is found, Peter responds with lots of purring. Toys do pique his interest, but he can get bored with them and will move on to an easier target. Be a peach and adopt Peter today. Peter is in Cat Adoptions (CA) 1, with ID number 43740135. His adoption fee is only $25.

Dog of the Week – Meet Precious

This fourteen-month-old female Pit Bull Terrier mix is blue and white in color and weighs 55 pounds. School is back in session and "Dogust" (August) is almost over. The summer adopt-a-thon is continuing so you can adopt our featured canine for only $10. Due to her length of stay in the shelter this canine is considered a VIP (very important pet). As a staff favorite, Precious is a sweet and gentle dog. She has her "zoomie" moments when she bursts forth with lots of energy and then she's ready to be close by your side. Treats and toys both prove interesting to her as she will sit nicely for treats and play eagerly with toys. Adoption by a loving family could give her a new lease on life. Meet Precious in Dog Adoptions (DA) 23, her ID number is A48213439.
