Pet of the Week
photo: towncrier
Left tied up at the shelter anonymously, no name, no history, this shepherd mix is a real mystery. She's been named Betsy in honor of Betsy Ross on this Independence Day.

She's about a year old, medium-sized and quiet. She loves car rides and walks on the beach. What better way to celebrate independence by adopting Betsy and setting her free?

.If you would like to adopt a pet, call or stop by the Homer Animal Shelter on the Bypass across from the post office. The shelter is open seven days a week, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Call 235-3141, e-mail, or visit
