Doolin           SANDY GEDDRY


It’s a new year and a new decade. Many people are thinking about ways to improve their life. Responsible Pet Care suggests adopting a pet.
Take a look at Doolin. You won’t have to look far to find Doolin in the Community Room at the shelter. She will be the cutie greeting you at your feet.
Doolin is a one and a half year old orange and white tabby. She enjoys hanging around with some of the other cats in the room. She was a little shy when she first entered the shelter, but she has turned around to become a happy cat. She will blossom when she is in her own home.
There have been studies showing that having a special pet can improve health and over all quality of life for the pet owner. With so many special pets ready for adoptions, Responsible Pet Care would like to match you up to your perfect mate and improve your life.
