VELMA (R)'s Story...
Meet the gorgeous Velma and her handsome associate Rocco! You might recognize these sweethearts from a recent news story. They were abandoned in the backyard of the home they lived in when their owners decided to up and leave them there and move out. They've definitely been dealt an unfair hand thus far in life, but it's never too late for a happy ending, and that's what we wish for them both! Rocco and Velma would make excellent additions to any home. They are loving and caring dogs who have so much to offer. They will both sit when asked and have very sweet personalities. Velma is about 2 years old and weighs 21 lbs. The dogs would love to stay together, however it is not required and they can be adopted to separate homes. Velma is current on her vaccines and will be spayed and micro chipped upon adoption. Unfortunately due to the neglect she's suffered, she has tested positive for heartworms. Fortunately they are treatable and Velma will be good as new in no time. Please discuss the best treatment option with your veterinarian. Her ID # is 575491 and she can be found in cage 301 along with Rocco. Come meet them today!
