ESCANABA, Mich. (WJMN) – First for December’s Pet of the Month, we have Emma. Emma is a 15-year-old schoolgirl. She’s a very sweet senior looking for her retirement home.
“She really has a sad story,” said Vonnie Bruce, adoption specialist for Delta Animal Shelter. “Her owner is really sick and dying so he can’t keep her anymore and no family member can feed her. So unfortunately she has to go to the shelter, but she’s in a really, really great shape. She’s really healthy and very, very sweet.
“She was just looking for a really quiet home for her golden years, a retirement home where she could receive lots of love. I mean she just melted into your hands. She is just the sweetest old lady. And it’s true that she’s about 15 years old so she’s up there. But their kittens have a very long lifespan, so she has a lot of good years to her. “
Emma’s adoption fee is $25. To sign up for Emma, click here.
And finally, we have Jager, a 4-year-old boy who is neutered. He loves life, is playful, and loves chicken nuggets!
“He is really playful and loves life. He can be a little shy at first but once you get to know you, he loves the attention,” says Bruce. “He would sit here and scratch at his crib door waiting for someone to come and notice him. One thing his surrendering family has noted is how much he loves chicken nuggets. They’ll give him a tasty treat from their ten-course meal and it’s like his favorite dish. So he really likes chicken nuggets.
“He was looking for a home where he would be the only cat. He is not too concerned with sharing his time and people with other animals. And best of all the kids are older for him, he can get a little nervous with lots of uproar and lots of stuff going on. So he was looking for a quiet, slow-paced home. But yeah, he’s just a big, nice boy. “
Jager adoption fee is $50. To apply for Jager adoption, click here.
Delta Animal Shelter will also be hosting a Pet Pictures with Santa event this weekend, Saturday, December 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the shelter. There is a $10 donation fee. All pets are welcome.
