FARMINGTON — Dos and Abby-the-Cat are Pets of the Week at the Franklin County Animal Shelter.

Dos, the Dog of the Week, is a 1-year-old terrier mix. He is a big dog who needs house skills training because he is a playful puppy needing to learn boundaries. Dos would be best suited to a home without cats or young children. He gets along with other dogs and would enjoy meeting prospective pack members.

The Cat of the Week is Abby-the-Cat, an affectionate, female senior. Abby is diabetic and needs a family who will be comfortable giving insulin shots on a daily basis. She is comfortable among other social cats, but she can be timid around dogs.

Abby-the-Cat, Dos and other pets may be visited at the shelter from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through 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.
