Facts about Onyx
Breed: Domestic Shorthair/Domestic Shorthair Mix
Color: Black (All)
Hey there, I'm Onyx! I'm a sweet boy that loves attention! I enjoy being pet, held and snuggled and I can't wait to find a home of my own where I can be my true self. I came to HSMC as a stray and now I'm excited to find out what it really means to be loved. If you're looking for a playful, cuddly and downright purrfect feline then I am the guy for you!
Located in beautiful north central Wisconsin, we have a beautiful new facility and dog walking trails. We are a full service, unlimited admissionhumane society shelter contracted with the county to house all stray animals. We believe in the humane and ethical treatment of all living creatures, and promote these beliefs in our actions and educational outreach programs. We work with rescue groups, volunteers, and the public to promote sterilization of companion pets and "forever" homes. All dogs, cats and rabbits are sterilized before adoption or have a scheduled appointment at a time determined by veterinary staff.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We are open to the public from noon until 5 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday and noon to 7 on Thursday. We are closed on holidays, Wednesdays and Sundays. We are located at 7001 Packer Drive in Wausau WI.
