Pets of the week
AGE: Archer and Lover are 2-year-old siblings who are looking for a new home together. Their previous owner traveled too much to give them the love and attention they deserved.
PERSONALITY: Originally adopted from the shelter as kittens, Archer and Lover have become very dependent on one another and find comfort in each other’s company. As a bonded pair, Archer and Lover are likely to be depressed and frightened if separated. For their health and happiness, these best buddies must be adopted together.
HIGHLIGHTS: Archer, a lynx point with beautiful blue eyes, is a little bit shyer than his sister, Lover, a brown Maine coon-like tabby. They need a quiet home with an attentive loving family who will give them the time it takes to rebuild their self-confidence. Archer and Lover need to be indoor-only. With time, love and patience, Archer and Lover will blossom into affectionate companion kitties. When you adopt these best buddies, you are rescuing best friends. Take advantage of the 2-fur-1 adoption special (Friends of the Animal Shelter pays the second adoption fee).
AVAILABLE: To meet Archer and Lover, call the shelter at 541-774-6654 to arrange an appointment. The Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S. Pacific Highway, Phoenix, is open by appointment only.
ADOPTION FEE: Archer and Lover’s adoption fee is $90. A free vet wellness visit is included in the fee. Archer is neutered; Lover is spayed.
