Pet of the Week
photo: towncrier

Mitzy was left tied up alone and frightened at the shelter one wet, rainy night. She has a questionable heritage (chocolate lab coloring and dachshund-like legs), and not much is known about this young, small dog, though she reports that she loves turkey tidbits! Mitzy is nervous in her new surroundings, but very clearly is sweet and attentive.

While giving thanks this week, why not consider opening your heart to just a little more love?
