FARMINGTON — Franklin County Animal Shelter has announced its Pets of the Week. Boomer, a senior, male beagle mix, is the Dog of the Week and Slater, a 1- to 3-year-old female is the Cat of the Week. 

Boomer is an older dude who is still pretty spry. He’d love to find a home that will appreciate him and all his beagle ways. He used to live with another dog, so he would love to meet other dogs.

Slater is a beautiful and sweet girl hoping to find a family to take her home. 

Boomer, Slater 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.
