FARMINGTON — The Franklin County Animal Shelter has announced its Pets of the Week. 

A 9-year-old beagle named Buddy is the Dog of the Week. He has a typical beagle personality — sweet and talkative — and feeding time is his favorite part of day.  Buddy will do best in a home without small children.

Patches, who is 7 to 9 years old, is the Cat of the Week. She is a lovable cat who enjoys attention and cuddles. 

Buddy, Patches and other pets may be visited at the shelter from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesdays to Saturdays at 550 Industry Road. Cats and dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption and have been vaccinated against rabies, treated for fleas, microchipped and had nail trims.

The shelter also finds homes for barn cats, livestock and other pets.
