Franklin County Animal Shelter is featuring Jazzy and Zipper as its Pets of the Week.

Jazzy is a 4-year-old female Staffy mix who arrived from North Carolina. She is a little hard of hearing, but she is a sweet and happy girl who would love to meet her new owner’s dog to see if they might be friends. 

Zipper is a senior male cat who needs a forever home. He is very laid-back and could even be called a gentle giant.

Jazzy, Zipper 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 finds homes for barn cats, livestock and other pets.
