Pet of the week


FARMINGTON – Columbus arrived at the Franklin County Animal Shelter as a skinny little bag of bones. He is now lively and energetic and loves to play with other feline friends. He can often be found with his arm stretched way out of his kennel trying to grab anyone’s attention or arm- whichever comes first.

Staff named him Columbus because he loves to explore and discover new things. He and his cage mate, Mayflower, have tons of fun together. They often romp about and play with anything they can get their paws onto. Columbus would be a great addition to any household and companion to any four-legged pet.

New dogs at the shelter include a female lab mix from Chesterville.

Kitten season is here and foster homes are needed. Anyone who would be interested in fostering kittens is asked to call 778-2638.
