Blanco Pet of the WeekBlanco

Are you one of those people who just adores big dogs? If so, the Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League has the perfect dog for you. His name is Blanco and he’s a purebred American bulldog. That’s right, purebred! Blanco found himself at the shelter when his people could no longer care for him. At 3 years old, he’s past the puppy stage but is very strong and has lots of energy! Although he looks intimidating, Blanco can actually be a bit shy initially but give him a few minutes and he’ll be trying to give you doggy kisses. Blanco is also a pretty chill guy most of the time but can get excited…by things like birds, squirrels, smells, etc. Combined with his size and strength, this enthusiasm can make him something of a force of nature, so he’s looking for a home with someone used to big dogs like him. Could that be you? Stop by our Oglethorpe Adoption Center to meet Blanco and find out.

Virgil Pet of the WeekMeet Virgil, a cat of epic proportions. Well…not really, but, at 17 pounds, this handsome black cat is indeed impressive. To be honest, he could stand to lose a couple of pounds—but couldn’t we all. Virgil arrived at the Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League when his person could no longer care for him. He’s a bit overwhelmed by shelter life but has begun exploring his new surroundings; for a larger cat, this 5-year-old is surprisingly agile and loves to climb the cat trees and stroll the raised walkways in Kitty City. Virgil has lived with children, other cats, and even a dog, making him an ideal adoption candidate for almost any home! If you’re interested in a friendly, laid-back feline friend, look no further. Just stop by our Oglethorpe Adoption Center and meet Virgil.
