Meet the Treasure Valley’s Pets of the Week (April 15-21)

Local pets are available for adoption in the Treasure Valley through the West Valley Humane Society, the Meridian Canine Rescue and the Idaho Humane Society. Here are three featured pets from local rescue shelters:

Meet the Idaho Humane Society’s Greycie

Greycie is a 7-year-old, 15-pound spayed female domestic shorthair mix. Poor Greycie has been in and out of the shelter since early March. She has been adopted and returned three times, each time at no fault of her own.

She is an affectionate, playful cat who enjoys being close to her human friends. Greycie loves to snuggle and appreciates cheek rubs and chump scratches.

When she’s not busy being pampered and adored, she loves to chase after toys — especially if they’re covered in catnip or attached to a string.

Greycie the cat is available for adoption at the Idaho Humane Society.

Greycie is used to being an indoor-only cat, and she is completely litter box trained.

Come meet Greycie (#40987022) in Cattery Kennel 112 at the Idaho Humane Society, 4775 Dorman St. The shelter is open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Meet the Meridian Canine Rescue’s Misty

Say hello to Misty! She’s 2 years old, full of energy, and she gives the best hugs in the whole Treasure Valley. Misty arrived at the Meridian Canine Rescue via the Project Freedom Ride transport from Texas.

Misty the dog is available for adoptions from the Meridian Canine Rescue.

We know that she’s good with dogs and kids, not a fan of cats, and not yet house trained.

Here’s the write-up from her previous rescue: “Misty was roaming and taken in by one of our volunteers a couple months ago. She is people friendly and thinks she is a lap dog. If you sit down, she will sit right on you. She is a little high energy, maybe partly because of the young age, but after a walk she settles down. She does well on a leash. She does not like cats, but has done well with other dogs. She has been around kids ages 11-13. She has done well with them and would probably be fine with even younger children.”

If you’re interested in adopting Misty, please bring the whole family in to meet her during the rescue’s open hours.
