FARMINGTON — Winston and Black Jack are the Pets of the Week at the Franklin County Animal Shelter.

Dog of the Week Winston, an unknown breed who is at least 7 years old, is a pretty laid-back, gentle giant with excellent leash manners, and he knows some basic commands. Despite his age, he loves to play — but he is great about listening when playtime is over. He likes to be the top dog, so he would want to live in a home where he’s the only animal.

Black Jack, a 4- to 6-year-old male, is the Cat of the Week. He is a sweet middle-aged cat looking for his new “fur-ever” home. Black Jack is a little bit on the shy side until he gets to know people and he is a conversationalist.

Winston, Black Jack 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 for rabies, treated for fleas, microchipped and have had nail trims. The shelter also rehomes barn cats, livestock and other pets.
