Zippy's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Zippy's Story...
Zippy was dropped off at the county shelter because her family didn't have time for her anymore. Zippy is very sweet and easy going but no one came forward to adopt her from the shelter. It was very difficult for this precious girl to spend longer than a month in an outdoor/covered cage during the major rainstorms. She is recovering from her recent loss and now enjoys playing ball, cuddling on the couch, and going for car rides. Zippy is happy, healthy, and ready to love again.
