Furry Tails: Mick Jagger and Rocco are waiting for forever homes

Looking to bring a pet into your home? Local animal shelters are a great place to find a furry companion. So, as part of Furry Tails, I will once a week feature adoptable pets from local animal shelters. If you have room in your heart and are looking to bring an adorable furball into your home, maybe one of these guys is meant to be part of your family!

Animal Friends Profile:

Meet Mick Jagger! This handsome guy is ready to have fun with his new family! He arrived at Animal Friends when his former owner could no longer take care of him. He would rather be the only pet in the house so he could have all the love for himself! Mick is IVF+ but that doesn’t mean he can’t lead a normal life. FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, which weakens a cat’s immune system, but with the right diet, regular visits to the vet, and staying indoors, they can live a happy, healthy life.

If you can help, come to Animal Friends at 562 Camp Horne Road, Pittsburgh, PA, 15237 or call 412-847-7000. For more information on how you can adopt one of Animal Friends’ pets, visit their website here!

Profile of Orphans of the Storm:

Mom was a chihuahua/terrier mix and dad was a small retriever mix. Rocco is 3 months old and loves other dogs, cats and children. He lived in a foster family and is playful but loves cuddles. He is doing well with training at home. The scar on his head dates from his birth.
