Adopt a Pet
AGE: Ridge is a little over a year old, and he is a curious, outgoing, affectionate fella.
PERSONALITY: He loves to play. Just give him a catnip toy and prepare to be entertained. There is a bit of a hitch in his git-along, which means his back left leg is a little gimpy and he sometimes limps. This does not interfere with his enjoyment of life, however.
HIGHLIGHTS: One of his favorite playmates is 1-year-old Falcon, a slightly shyer boy. Did you know you can adopt two kitties at the Shelter for one fee? They call it the 2-fur-1 program.
AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S. Pacific Hwy., between Talent and Phoenix, open 7 days a week.
COST: Ridge’s adoption fee is $45, and you get a free wellness visit at a local veterinarian office. Ridge is neutered.
