C.A.R.E. Animal Shelter Looks To Find A Home For Fun-Loving Sisters
Zoey and Chloe are fun-loving sisters who were left behind when their owner moved. They are a very bonded pair that would very much like to be adopted together. When they had puppies, they even took care of each other’s babies. They can be nervous at first, but they get the zoomies, play silly games and are affectionate when they are with people they know. If interested in adopting these two, please plan to visit Zoey and Chloe a couple of times. Once you are in, they will be your best friends.
C.A.R.E. Animal Shelter is located at 1528 27th St. S.E. in Ruskin. It is open to the public Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m-3 p.m. Please call 645-2273 for more info or visit https://careshelter.org.
