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

Carra, a 1- to 3-year-old, is the Cat of the Week. When she first arrived at the shelter, Carra was shy and made the lobby cabinet her home. Now she has had a change of heart, amazing staff as she drapes over counters and desks looking for attention. She would make a great addition to an office. She hopes for a lap she can cuddle in. 

Dog of the Week, Mama, a 3- to 4-year-old unconfirmed breed, is an affectionate girl looking for an owner willing to snuggle. She is friendly around other dogs, but would rather chase cats than live with them. Older people and canes seem to make Mama nervous. Though she barks at children, she has not shown aggression toward them. Mama is learning basic commands and has good leash manners.

Mason, Dawson, Carra 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.
