Lady, a 5-year-old, 31.6-pound tan and black spayed female Beagle Shepherd mix, joins Nina, a 2-year, 2-month-old, 4.7-pound black and white spayed female Domestic Shorthair mix, as this week’s featured Dog and Cat of The Week available for adoption at the Humane Society of Delaware County (HSDC) located east of Delaware on U.S. 36/Ohio 37.

Lady was surrendered to the shelter on Friday, May 23, by her previous family because she barked too much in their apartment complex. She has been in and out of the shelter since May 21 and is looking to find someone who will give her a loving home. Lady, who is very energetic, loves to be around people. A lap dog, she is known to curl up on a lap and go to sleep and while being petted. Lady knows “sit” and HSDC staff members believe she would be open to learning other tricks if someone would be willing to take the time to teach her. Lady is definitely a people pleaser! She would do best in a home with no other dogs and no cats. Are you looking to adopt a dog this summer? Do you have a thing for the Beagle and Shepherd breeds? If so, plan to visit the shelter soon and meet Lady. She will be awaiting your visit.

The adoption fee for dogs is $115. Puppies (6 months old and younger) are $130.

Nina is one of several cats found outside the shelter in early March and, despite their circumstances, they are all mellow, friendly felines. Nina was briefly adopted almost as soon as she hit the adoption floor, but was soon returned on April 24 because her new family had to move and they were unable to find an apartment that would allow cats. A petite kitty, Nina would meet anyone’s criteria for a cat to fall in love with, but she is still at the HSDC awaiting her new forever home. Nina is not front declawed. Is there a cat in your future? Might your home have just the right niche for Nina? If so stop by the shelter and get acquainted with Nina — you won’t be disappointed.

The adoption fee for cats is $60. Kittens (6 months old and younger) are $85.
