Meet the Treasure Valley Pets of the Week (July 8-July 14)

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

Meet Ginger from Simply Cats

I’m an independent type, but still enjoy being in a family. I like attention on my terms. I’m shy with new people, so it may take me awhile to warm up. If you lounge with a soft blanket, I may bless you with my presence. Sometimes I want to just sleep in your lap and be gently petted on my head. I’m pretty good about getting up and walking away when I’ve had enough human interaction. There’s a wand toy in my room at Simply Cats with a little mouse on it, and it’s so much fun to play with! If I’m not feeling up to cuddling, I’ll definitely feel up to playing!

Change has been really hard for me. If I had a choice, I’d be the only pet in my new home for the time being. It’s not that I’m a “princess,” per se, it’s just what I’m accustomed to, both in my previous home and at Simply Cats. OK, I might be a little bit of a princess. The staff recognizes my need for space and time to settle in, so I’ve been given that while I look for my forever humans. I’m yearning for a family that will love me from a distance, and respects and understands how much I value my alone time. If they can understand that about me, then I promise to show them just how sweet and cuddly I can be!

Meet the Meridian Canine Rescue’s South

Meet South! This handsome fella is 2 years old and looking for his pawfect forever family. He loves attention, his crate, stuffed animals, Netflix and hugs.

South is a smart and independent boy with great manners. He does know sit, stay, watch me, down, wait, come, leave it, shake, high five, on your bed, and off. Best of all, if you pat your stomach, he will give you a hug! This one is probably his favorite, which is just fine with us, we could give South hugs all day. South is quite the home body. He loves to hang out in his crate or on the couch snuggled up to his humans.

His perfect day would be filled with snuggles, hugs, and snacks. He is the ideal Netflix and chill date. South does well with older kids. We are recommending a home without other dogs for now, but he might be able to be introduced to other calm dogs in the future. He also may want to chase a cat or two. South is housetrained and good with children. If you’d like to adopt South, bring the whole family in to meet him during MCR’s open hours.
