Looking for a “purr-fect” partner to share your love with this Valentine’s Day? Meet Mingle, a true blessing in fur form. While he may be reserved at first, once you “purr-severe” and show him some TLC, you’ll discover a faithful friend who’s always there to lend a comforting purr and a paw to hold. Don’t wait for a sign from above – let Mingle be your Valentine and experience the “meow-racle” of unconditional love!
Mingle has been born again into a new life of kindness from a life of neglect. For this reason, he is unsure of human interactions and will need time and understanding to renew his faith in humankind.
Do you have the patience and love in your heart to give this dark haired beauty a chance? Please let us know by submitting an online application or stop by the shelter during our visiting hours; Tuesday-Saturday; noon-4.
