Ada County Pet of the Week: Ross


Ross, 4, is a 16-pound neutered male domestic shorthair with handsome brown and black tiger stripes. He loves attention and will pull your hand back if you try to stop petting him. He does have a tendency to give love bites, but he is very friendly and loves the company of people. Because he can be a little rough, he would probably do best in a home with just adults or older children. Ross has been a bit stressed in the shelter environment. He needs time relaxing in a home of his own to let his true personality shine.

Meet Ross (#32038420) at the Idaho Humane Society’s PetSmart Everyday Adoption Center, 130 N. Milwaukee St. in Boise. It is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day except Sunday, when it closes at 5 p.m. The main shelter, at 4775 Dorman St. in Boise, is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Learn more and see other adoptable pets at
