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

Dog of the Week James is a senior male Staffordshire terrier mix. He’s a sweet older gentleman looking for someone to spend my days with. James would like to do a meet and greet with your dog to see if we’ll be friends, and he has lived with cats. Because of his age, he would like to find a home without the noise and commotion of younger children. 

Heather, a 1- to 3-year-old female, is the Cat of the Week. Don’t let her cranky appearance put you off — she is still adjusting to life with the other cats at the shelter, but is really very sweet.

James, Heather and other pets are available for visits from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays at 550 Industry Road. Cats and dogs are spayed or neutered before 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.
