Pet of the Week

Jerry Lee  
Jerry Lee wasn't at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, but some of his comrades were. Amidst all the human drama were the heroics of the search-and-rescue dogs, many of them German shepherds. These dogs are smart, easy to train and extremely responsive. Having recently been abandoned, Jerry Lee is a 4-year-old purebred German shepherd looking for a hero of his own to rescue him from the shelter.

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
