Pet of the Week
photo: towncrier
Dawson used to be a tough ol' hombre with an empty belly and battle wounds, wanderin' the open range 'n' fightin' fer his wymmin and his grub. He has traded that in for the cushy life and now has a temporary personal attendant who serves him salmon snackies and fluffs his pillow. Dawson is a 3-year-old neutered male and great with other cats. He'll never tire of his new status as a pampered pussycat and seeks a permanent domestic partner.

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