Join Mix 107.9 each Monday for our special "Pet of the Week"
sponsored by Hight Ford
The Somerset Humane Society in Skowhegan will be sharing with us a special animal that is ready to find themselves a new loving family.
Stop by each week for pictures and information to find a cuddly new furry friend! Plus, if you adopt their "Pet of the Week" you'll receive a special discount on the adoption fee!
This week's Pet that needs a loving home is Fred!!
Breed: Basset Hound
Age: 8 Years Old
Best Fit Home: Fred would like an active home or a laid back home without cats.
Personality Traits: Fred likes to be in the yard when someone is out there with him. He likes attention and doesn't seem to mind other dogs; however he cannot be in a home with cats. Fred is friendly with people and loves carrots for a healthy snack.
Exercise & Grooming needs: Fred doesn't mind a bath and likes to run around in the yard for short periods at a time.
Special Needs & Diet: He is not a special needs dog.
Skills, Talent & House Broken: Fred would probably be housebroken in a home where he would have more of a routine.
Adoption Cost/ Fees: Fred is neutered and up to date on shots; his adoption fee is $75 which includes a free wellness exam at any of our local vets.
Current Shelter Needs
Kitten season is here - we are in desperate need of kitten chow, canned pate cat food, collars for the kittens, kitten formula, feline pine, or wood pellets for the litter pails. We are in need of no-dye cat food, 30 gallon trash bags, clear unflavored Pedialyte, and laundry detergent.
