Adopt Wheegie

Pet Of The Week Graphic 5 28 21

Today is Fri-Yay, and here on Sunrise that means it’s also time for Pet of The Week.  A segment where we highlight shelter pets here in The Crossroads looking for their furrever homes.  This morning we want to introduce you to one of our furry friends, and it is a cat from the Dorothy O’connor Pet Adoption Center here in Victoria.

Mari Gonzales/Public Receptionist at DOCPAC: “Oh Wheegie is a special cat.  He is a Maine Coon Lynx mix.  He tops out at almost 12 pounds.  But we are trying to get that weight up a little bit.  He runs about 4 years old.  He’s got a long hair smooth coat. Beautiful crystal blue eyes.  Long nice long tail.  He is only $50 dollars right now.  He wants to be with his people.  He wants to be lazy and lay around get petted all day.  And when he’s not with his people he just minds his own business and he’s nice and aloof.”

If you’re interested in Wheegie, his adoption fee is $50.00 while he await’s for his perfect home!

Here’s how you can get to the pawty or in general get in contact with the Dorothy O’connor Pet Adoption Center if you’re interested in Wheegie, or any other furry friend.
